The log tool helps collect information from your VDI environment so it can be used for troubleshooting. The tool can be obtained by downloading the latest version of VDI and opening the installation folder.
This article covers:
- Zoom VDI setup on a Windows Virtual Desktop, VMware or Citrix environment
- Zoom VDI version 3.3.0 or higher to enable logging from the tool interface
After downloading VDI, open the installation folder and find ZoomVDITool.exe. Run it on the Zoom VDI client. It cannot be run on thin client plugins. Once the tool is open, you will see the following sections:
- Save Location
Click Change to choose where you would like the collected logs to be saved. You can select local folders or shared folders on your network. If there is a problem copying the logs to the location you selected, an error message will appear next to the State section of the interface.
- Enable Log
Check the box next to Log is enabled to start collecting logs. You will need an administrator add "AllowEnableLog" (DWORD) at HKCU\Software\Policies\Zoom\Zoom Meetings\VDI or HKLM\Software\Policies\Zoom\Zoom Meetings\VDI before you can toggle logging on or off. Alternatively, if you have administrator privileges you can run the VDI tool as an administrator to perform this action. You must the restart Zoom VDI client after changing the log settings for this to take effect. It is best to leave this option unchecked if you do not have an issue to troubleshoot.
- Number of Log Files
This lists the total number of files with the .log extension saved by your VDI client.
- Total Size of All Logs
Combined size of all .log files saved by your VDI client.
This displays the status of the Collect Logs or Clear Logs operation.
Click Collect Logs to gather data from the VDI client and connected thin client plugins. Click Clear Logs to remove .log files and crash dump data collected by the VDI client and thin client plugins.
