CLI Logging and Debugging

The Jamf Pro Server Tools CLI prints debugging information to the system logger, which manifests in the following locations:
  • Linux: The file in the /var/log folder that is configured to log events (usually /var/log/system.log). You can configure the logging location in the /etc/syslog.conf file.

  • Windows: Event Viewer—Look for the program jamf-pro-server-tools.

  • Mac: /var/log/system.log—Use the Console app to view and parse this file. To limit the event list to Jamf Pro Server Tools, search for the log prefix jamf-pro-server-tools.

If the above logging methods do not work and a failure is encountered, the Jamf Pro Server Tools CLI will attempt to create an .error.log file in place of the .sql.gz file of the same name.
Note:

If the Jamf Pro Server Tools CLI cannot create the .error.log file, an error will appear in the system log stating that insufficient privileges exist.
