    import Solarwind LEM Logs




      I have restored some old LEM logs from tape drive, is there a way I can import them in the current LEM (6.0), if not can I read the logs from any other applications.

          First, you'll need to work with Support to get LEM logs restored for review, research and reporting.  It requires root access to the LEM appliance, and restoring logs (as of May 30) isn't something an end-user can do.


          Second, when you restore logs, they will replace what is currently on the LEM appliance, which could lead to data loss.  Ideally, you'd spin up a second LEM instance for reviewing restored logs.  Fortunately, this new instance doesn't require any licensing, and should be able to work with the minimum machine specs as it won't be receiving or normalizing new data.  That means it should be cheap-as-free to spin up a LEM VM to work as a data warehouse.


          Third, LEM log backups are version specific.  The VM you spin up to restore the logs needs to be the same version that created the log archives in the first place.  You should be able to find links to past versions in your customer portal.


          Hope that helps!
