Subject: Re: Missing log files when rsync to replacement server. 

On the new server in the logbook that should have several 2020 entries it stops on the last entry of 2019.

On the old server after stopping elogd i get:

/usr/sbin/elogd -v 3

Cannot open "elogd.cfg": No such file or directory

Are the files supposed to be in /usr/local/elog or /usr/share/elog? I have both on the old server. I only synced /usr/local/elog to the new server. In any case the Logbook with 2020 entries does not show a 2020 directory.

My backup system also does not show any 2020 logbook directories. It was current up to this week when I started this process.

Start your new server interactively with "elogd -v 3" to see all verbose output. You will then see how it indexes all logbooks. If not, you might have a wrong path in elogd.cfg

I am moving from a Hyper-V host to a VMware host and created a new elog server. I installed the elog software and did an rsync to get the .cfg file and logbooks to the new server.

rsync -av root@old.elog.server:/usr/local/elog /usr/local/
 

On the new server all of the 2020 entries are missing and there does not appear to be a 2020 logbook on either server but I can still access the 2020 entries on the old server. Where might they be and how do I get them over to the new server.

 

Old server says version is ELOG V3.1.4-unknown and new server says version is ELOG V3.1.4-966e3dd

Bothe servers a fully updated CentOS 7.
