As root user, run the following command from the UI VM console.

where:
  • configure - Configures the vCenter Operations Manager vApp version to redirect logs to Log Insight.
  • reconfigure - Reconfigures the vCenter Operations Manager vApp version to direct logs to a new Log Insight server instance.
  • disable-log-redirection - Turns off log redirection.
