Collect Horizon View Composer Logs in vRealize Log Insight

4 Nov

If you are using the VMware Horizon View Content Pack for Log Insight it doesn’t capture the View Composer logs. As you are using the Log Insight instance to centralized all your logs, you may want to capture the Horizon View Composer logs please follow these steps:

  1. Install the log Insight Agent on the Horizon View Composer server VM within your environment
  2. Navigate to %ProgramData%\VMware\Log Insight Agent\
  3. Open the liagent.ini file in any text Editor (Notepad, Notepad ++ etc.)
  4. Add the following configuration parameters to the file
    [filelog|ViewComposer]
    directory=”C:\ProgramData\VMware\View Composer\Logs”
    include=vmware*.log
    exclude=vmware-viewcomposer-audit.log;vmware-sviconfig.log

  5. Save and Restart the VMware Log Insight Agent service.

You will be able to see the Horizon View Composer logs getting captured to the Log Insight Manager: (Example below)

    Would these settings still be valid? We're using Composer 6.2 with Log Insight version 3.6. I put the settings in as described, but, the composer servers I'm testing with say disconnected in LI. Trying a restart now, see what I get. Didn't know if these settings, when written, were up to a certain version.
