KB351: Changes required for Log Server after upgrading to 7.04

Summary

Upgrading to Moxie 7.04 can revert all Log Server configurations to the default state. In addition, it can also cause the Log Server to be listed twice as a connected Moxie application. If this occurs, the Log Server is unable to write logs to the database.

Symptoms 

Before Upgrading

In this example, the Log Server:

  • is configured to use Port 8080
  • name is LogServerKB
  • is listed a single time as an application in System Manager

In addition, when viewing the System Manager options, on the Content logging tab, only one Log Server is listed. 

After Upgrading

The Log Server:

  • is configured to use Port 80
  • name is LogServerKB.ovx.local
  • is listed twice as an application in System Manager, once as the old version and once as the upgraded version

In addition, when viewing the System Manager options, on the Content logging tab, two Log Servers are listed.
