An additional log file for OUD: server.out

The server.out file stored in <OUD_Instance>/OUD/logs may contain useful pieces of information logged very early in the OUD bootstrap process, e.g. before the logging subsystem is initialized.

This file is overriden at each restart.

The start-ds output is sent to standard output as well.  You are welcome to re-direct that output to
any log that you like overwriting the existing one or appending if you prefer.  For instance, you can redirect logs like these into their own date and time specific output file so that you can  examine each start and stop output independently.

Hi,
can i limit somehow the size of this file (server.out)?
the size can reach 10Gb and to much for me.

Hello,
The server.out is used mostly during the startup phase to log messages when the regular loggers are not yet initialized. So it should not grow.
Could you share a short snipplet of this log file (end of file would be better) ?
Thanks

Btw it would be more convenient to use the OUD forum at https://community.oracle.com/community/fusion_middleware/identity_management/oracle_directory_server_enterprise_edition_sun_dsee to troubleshoot or discuss
