About Siebel Server Log Files
Siebel Server log files record data for each individual Siebel Server deployed as part of a Siebel Enterprise Server. The Siebel application stores Siebel Server log files in the log directory for each individual Siebel Server. The log directory location on Windows is SIEBSRVR_ROOT\log. The log directory on UNIX is SIEBSRVR_ROOT/enterprises/EnterpriseServerName/SiebelServerName/log.
Server log files use the following name convention: EnterpriseServerName.SiebelServerName.log.
Information contained in the Siebel Server log file can be used to determine where to search and investigate component log files for further information. The task ID, which makes up a part of the component log file name, is referenced in messages written to the Siebel Server log file. Locate the appropriate component task ID in the Siebel Server log file and open the task-specific component log that has the task ID in the log file name. See Example of Component Startup Log File for an example of this relationship.
