Gather a log bundle for VMware support engineer for a vRA cluster.
With no VAMI, we generate by remote SSH into appliance.
1. Create the Log Bundle:
$ ssh email@example.com
root@vraappliance [ ~ ] vracli log-bundle
<wait for a few minutes, and view name output on last line>
The log bundle /home/root/log-bundle-20230101T112323.tar is now available.
2a. Using a file-transfer program, download the file to the local workstation.
2b. Delete the file from the appliance after transfer.
3. Upload to sftpsite.vmware.com, using the SR from the email.
With vRA 7.6:
(This does a single node.)
# vcac-config log-bundle
(This one does a cluster gather. However, it's broken with the JNI VMware patch, and only returns partial logs. Since 7.6 was near end-of-life, it was "best effort" limited.)
