logrotate falsely claims "log does not exist -- skipping"

Jump to solution

Hi, folks,

     This is a real puzzler. The logrotate command is falsely claiming that my log files don't exist and thus is not rotating them. Here's my config file from /etc/logrotate.d:

{

su tomcat tomcat

daily

rotate 30

compress

notifempty

missingok

copytruncate

}

     And here's what happens when I run logrotate -f -v <config file>

[root@degreeworksapp3 log]# logrotate -f -v /etc/logrotate.d/degreeworks

reading config file /etc/logrotate.d/degreeworks

Reading state from file: /var/lib/logrotate/logrotate.status

Handling 1 logs

 

rotating pattern: /u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/catalina.out

/u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/localhost.log

/u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/StudentPlanner.log

 forced from command line (30 rotations)

empty log files are not rotated, old logs are removed

switching euid to 91 and egid to 91

considering log /u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/catalina.out

  log /u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/catalina.out does not exist -- skipping

considering log /u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/localhost.log

  log /u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/localhost.log does not exist -- skipping

considering log /u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/StudentPlanner.log

  log /u01/app/tomcat/dwtest/degreeworks/logs/StudentPlanner.log does not exist -- skipping

switching euid to 0 and egid to 0

set default create context to system_u:object_r:logrotate_var_lib_t:s0

     But those files certainly do exist:

[root@degreeworksapp3 log]# find / -type f -ls | egrep -i "(catalina|localhost|StudentPlanner).(out|log)$"

 107747866   86704 -rw-r-----   1  tomcat             tomcat                    88777058 May 10 13:59 /u01/app/tomcat/dwprod/degreeworks/logs/StudentPlanner.log

     Your thoughts?

Thanks,

Hi,

logrotate says the files don't exist in /dwtest/, while "find" locates them in /dwprod/.

Regards,

Ilya.
