Resolution

Linux/Unix, Management Node:

Parallels Virtual Automation (PVA) status: pvamn status

PVA restart: pvamn restart

PVA (Control Center) status: pvacc status

PVA (Control Center) restart: pvacc restart

Special config file: /opt/pva/mn/bin/pva.conf

[log_folder] - Location of log files, default: /var/log/pva

[etc_folder] - Location of config files, default: /var/opt/pva/mn/etc

To change the log level, find the vzagent.conf location in pva.conf, and change it to <log_level>. Once the log level is changed, restart pvamn

3 – INFO level

4 – DEBUG level

6 – DEBUG level with XML messages

NOTE: Do not forget to decrease the log level back to the original value once you have finished troubleshooting. Having a log level higher than 2 may cause rapid growth of log files, possibly filling up all free space on the disk and leading to data corruption and downtime

Installation logs: /var/log/pva/setup/

To collect the PVA Report, run: /opt/pva/mn/bin/pvareport.sh <report_folder>

Again, do not forget to decrease the log level after collecting the report.
