Output of Daily Cronjob 0logwatch Sent to Mail instead of Saving to File on Oracle Linux 7 (Doc ID 2564364.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 02, 2022

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.0 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [3.8.13] to Oracle Linux 7.6 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [4.14.35] [Release OL7 to OL7U6]
Linux x86-64


 After upgrading to exadata on cell and db nodes, the output from daily cronjob 0logwatch sends a file to user root instead of saving the output in a file like configured in /etc/logwatch/conf/logwatch.conf:

# cat /etc/logwatch/conf/logwatch.conf
# Local configuration options go here (defaults are in /usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/logwatch.conf)
# if set, the results will be saved in <filename> instead of mailed
# or displayed.
Save = /var/log/exadatatmp/logwatch
