About the -LogFile Command

The LogFile option allows administrators to change the path or name of the LogFile. And, since every command overwrites the LogFile, to track all events (logs), you must change the path\name of the next LogFile to retain older versions.

The default path is the "\Logs" folder under the installed path:

C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\DLO\Logs

If DLO was upgraded from a previous version, the original directory structure is used.

The default path for the "\Logs" folder in previous releases was:

C:\Program Files\VERITAS\Backup Exec\DLO\Logs

Use the following syntax:

-LogFile <path\file>


Wildcard matches (*) are permitted in profile, Storage Location, and user names. Quotation marks are required around names if the name contains a space or colon.
