Your command is wrong because you are not quoting the filename with the asterisk:eg:  "debuglog*" .  

You probably have some file named debuglogSOMETHING in /root, therefore the command is expanded to:

 

find /Custom_log_Backup -maxdepth 1 -mtime +1 -type f -name debuglogSOMETHING ! -iname "*.gz" | tail

 

Change your command to:

find /Custom_log_Backup -maxdepth 1 -mtime +1 -type f -name "debuglog*" ! -iname "*.gz" | tail

thank Fran,

 

for debug log, you can see it inside Custom_log_Backup also as below.

/Custom_log_Backup/debuglog1Jan8_0819
/Custom_log_Backup/debuglog2Jan8_0838
/Custom_log_Backup/debuglog3Jan8_0128
/Custom_log_Backup/debuglog4Jan8_0151

but adding 'OMlog*', and it is OK.
