Manually Archiving Siebel Upgrade Log Files

Upgrades from: All Supported Siebel releases.

Environments: Development, production test, production.

Platforms: Windows and UNIX only. Does not apply to IBM z/OS.

This topic is part of an upgrade process. See How to Perform a Siebel Database Upgrade.

After a successful installation and upgrade, you must manually save and archive the log files located in the SIEBEL_ROOT/log/PROCESS (Windows) directory.

By default, only nine upgrade log files are retained for subsequent retries of the Upgrade Wizard. After nine log files have been created, when the Upgrade Wizard is rerun, it overwrites log files beginning with the earliest one created and recycles the rest as necessary. (This does not apply to the state.log file.)

The number of log files retained can be increased by resetting the siebel_log_archive environment variable to 20—for example, to retain twenty (20) log files.
