By default, the Vault Server or Fortress Server log file is located in
Code: Select all
%WINDIR%\Temp\sgvault\sgvault.log

Older log files will be named with the convention
Code: Select all
YYMMDDsgvault.log

YYMMDD is the date of the earliest log message in that file.

Sometimes, it is helpful to place your Vault server in Debug logging mode. You may do this in the Vault Admin Web Cliient, on the Logging node. After you change the log level, you will need to restart the IIS service by choosing Start->Run... and typing iisreset and hitting OK. Once IIS has been restarted, you will see more verbose log messages.

Starting in Vault 6.0, there is a log for Find in Files and one for the Notifications service.

The log file for Find in Files is located in
Code: Select all
%WINDIR%\Temp\SGVaultIndex\vaultindexservice.txt

The log file for Notifications is located in
Code: Select all
%WINDIR%\Temp\SGVaultNotify\vaultnotifyservice.txt
