Client logs are not collected when using the command "vmware-view-log-collector" on HP Thin Client (2151678)

  • 0 Ratings


  1. Launch Horizon Client for Linux on an HP T730 Thin Client and connect to a Horizon agent. 
  2. Disconnect the agent.
  3. Collect the client logs by typing the vmware-view-log-collector command in the command line. There are no mks logs collected.


A possible work around is to execute the export command below before your execute the vmware-view-log-collector command.

export USER=root

The environment variable $USER is used to create the /tmp/vmware-<user-name> directory, which is where the log files are created for Horizon Client for Linux.
