Restore config doesn't change Syslog Log file size on disk



  • I restored my config from 2.4.4_p1 to a new disk.

    The Status / System Logs / Settings Log file size (Bytes) was set to 10MB. After the reboot, the files in /var/log were all 500MB.

    So I click on the Reset Log Files button to flush the log and now they are 10MB.

    I know it's not a bug as flushing the logs on any Configuration restore would not be very appreciated.

    But maybe there might be an note in the Docs about this caveat.

    Isn't that enough:

  • Yes thanks to this note I was able to get what I wanted. That's what I did on the old 2.4.4_p1. I just "forgot" that I needed to do the same a few weeks later when I restored to a new disk.

    But do I have to visit all tabs and sub tabs to figure out what I need to pay attention to when restoring to a new installation?

    Keep a good documentation of the changes you made. And yes, verifying your setup after a config restore is important and pretty much a standard procedure.
