Log and Index storage maintenance does not work according to configurations
Symptoms
  • Log and Index storage storage maintenance does not remove log and indexes according to configurations on the Log Server object > Logs > Storage.
  • The fwd.elg file shows that it tries to delete older logs, but failed to access a certain path - a directory that should contain all the deletion candidates.
Cause

The /var/log partition is not cleared from Old logs and indexes. Log are not being removed since the cl_del directory is a link to a leftover directory from R77.X:

Example:

We checked this path:
[Expert@Host:0]# ls /opt/CPsuite-R80.20/fw1/log/cl_del/
ls: cannot access /opt/CPsuite-R80.20/fw1/log/cl_del/: No such file or directory

This directory is a link to a leftover from R77.x:

wxrwxrwx 1 root 39 Nov 7 2018 cl_del -> /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R77/fw1/log/cl_del
[Expert@Host:0]# ls /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R77/fw1/log/cl_del
ls: cannot access /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R77/fw1/log/cl_del: No such file or directory
