Reviewing the Log Files for Windows

The database server component installation creates a number of log files, such as UpgWiz.log, UpgWiz_01.log (the numeric suffix incrementing for subsequent log files), within the log subdirectory of the siebsrvr installation directory. Review the log files for any errors.

When you install your base language pack, it creates a special log file named dataimp_prim_lang.log.

The main log file, produced by the Siebel Upgrade Wizard (UpgWiz.log), does not contain errors returned by applications. Additional information about the configuration process can be found in the sw_cfg_utl.log file. Depending on the operation you performed, the ddl_ctl.log file reflects any errors.

To find additional operation-specific log files, open UpgWiz.log using any text editor and search for a ".log" string. This shows the names of log files produced during the operation; for example, if the configuration of the Database Server fails, the UpgWiz.log file contains the following information:

GenericLog GenericError 1 2002-02-28 15:51:24 (err=1) was returned by application (D:\sea77\siebsrvr\bin\ddlimp.exe ...)

GenericLog GenericError 1 2002-02-28 15:51:24 Execute file action failed (err=Launching the application)

In an example such as the one above, the ddlimp.log file contains a detailed error message:

DDLIMP-ERR-1071: Unable to build ddl statement "add col" (Open unloadtbl.jcl)

A Siebel utility called htmlgenm can also be helpful by creating an HTML file with the summary report of all steps performed by the Upgrade Wizard together with the information on log files.

Three options exist for the use of htmlgenm:

/M Master UCF file

Default: master.ucf

/H Summary HTML file

Default: summary.htm

/L Siebupg.exe LOG file

Default: UpgWiz.log

For example, if you want to see the HTML results from the database installation, the following command generates the summary.htm file in the log subdirectory:

htmlgenm /m master_install_mf.ucf
