Data Properties Logging

You can either enable the logging of a single data property, or you can enable the logging of many data properties on many hosts at the same time. The second method is called group logging, and is done by using the Manage Jobs features of Sun Management Center 3.5. For more information about group logging, see Group Logging.

You must enable the logging of a single data property from the Sun Management Center 3.5 console.
