Log and Backup to USB

Michael_IMichael_I Member Posts: 22  Freshman Member

Hello,

I did the configuration to save the Logs to a USB-Stick. Where can I watch the Logs on the USB Stick. In Monitor/Log are only the logs from the internal Storage.

Is there a possibility to make a regular backup to the USB-Stick?

    In the Case someone replay its possible to use a USB SSD for Backup?

    A 2TB SSD got Cheaper this Days and there should nought space for a propper Logfile.

    The old USG300 did Support atleast a USB Stick.

    Hi @Michael_I

    Here is the example shows how to use the USB device to store the system log information.

    Note: Only connect one USB device. It must allow writing (it cannot be read-only) and use the FAT16, FAT32, EXT2, or EXT3 file system. This example was tested

    Set Up the USB System Settings

    Go to CONFIGURATION > System > USB Storage > Settings > General. Select Activate USB storage service if you want to use the connected USB device(s).

    Set a number and select a unit (MB or %) to have the ZyWALL/USG send a warning message when the remaining USB storage space is less than the value you set here.

    CONFIGURATION > System > USB Storage > Settings > General


    Set Up the USB Log Storage

    Go to CONFIGURATION > Log & Report > Log Settings, select USB Storage and click Activate. Click Apply to save your changes.

    CONFIGURATION > Log & Report > Log Settings


    Go to CONFIGURATION > Log & Report > Log Settings > USB Storage > Edit. Select Duplicate logs to USB storage (if ready) to have the ZyWALL/USG save a copy of its system logs to a connected USB storage device. Use the Selection drop-down list to change the log settings for all of the log categories.

    CONFIGURATION > Log & Report > Log Settings

    Check the USG Log Files

    Connect the USB to PC and you can find the files in the following path:\Model Name_dir\centralized_log\YYYY-MM-DD.log

    What is the max size of a USB Dongle who get supported?
    EXT3 should support 32 TiB!

    Hi @Username_is_reserved

    It should be able to support up to 32TiB theoretically in ext3 format since we didn’t limit the file system size on the firmware. However, normally the USB port on the device is used to collect the device log, captured packets…etc. If you meant to install this 32TiB storage as a NAS server, it’s recommended to access the server through Ethernet instead of using USB port directly.
