When trying to troubleshoot issues in your VMware View environment, you may encounter the need to obtain extra verbosity in the logs in order to capture all of the events surrounding the issue.
It is possible to change the level of logging for the various components in a VMware View environment and in this video tutorial you will see how the log levels on the View Connection/Security servers, the View Client and View Agent can be modified. In VMware View 4.0, the available log levels are INFO, DEBUG and FULL. In VMware View 4.5 and later, in addition to the View log levels, there are 2 additional components that can be set on the View Agent and Client – PCoIP and Virtual Channel, each with their own levels.
This video is based on VMware Knowledge Base article Changing the log file behavior in VMware View components (1025887) which should be referenced for the steps involved.
For instructions relating to changing the log levels for the VMware View Composer components, check out VMware Knowledge Base article Enabling verbose logging for View Composer related components (1010388). We hope to have a video covering that KB article available in the coming weeks so watch this space!
