Adding or Removing Log Files in Disaster Recovery (DR) Backups

By default, the following log files are included in DR backups:

  • CVD.log
  • SIDBPrune.log
  • SIDBEngine.log
  • CVMA.log

Additional log files can be included in DR backups.


  1. In the CommCell Browser, right-click the CommServe, click Control Panel, and then click DR Backup.

    The DR Backup Settings dialog box is displayed.

  2. From the Export Settings tab, in the Wildcard Settings for Backup Log File box, type the name of the log file(s) that should be included in DR backups.

    Note: Enter the name of the log file; the extension .log will be automatically appended during backup.

  3. Click OK.


The specified log files will be included from the clients, subsequently, whenever a DR backup job is run.
