Logging functionality of BCWipe Enterprise.
BCWipe Enterprise provides the following ways to monitor the results of wiping processes on client computers:
- Status and Last error strings reported on the top part of the BCWipe tab.
On the picture below this area is outlined by green.
The information is related to the computer selected in the left pane.
- Log information shown in the BCWipe Log field in BCWipe tab of Jetico
Central Manager Console.
This log file is stored in JCM Database.
It contains short reports from clients like "task start" "task finish" "canceled", etc.
and also reports from JCM console like "task set assigned", "task set modified".
The following picture illustrates the log file (outlined by blue). By right-clicking on this area one can copy the line
to clipboard as well configure search options
- Detailed Log file generated by BCWipe process on the client computers.
To assign a log file to a wiping task, select Log file page
in the task properties window.
The log file can be stored on the client computers. In that case, administrator should write the local path
Another way - store all the log files on a network shared location (perhaps on the same server where database is installed,
but it is not necessary). In that case, the question is: how to differ the log files that come from different clients?
BCWipe offers the solution - add %computername% to the name of the file or folder.
The picture above shows the right syntax.
