SDDC Support Bundle

Is it possible to redirect a SDDC support bundle to a network location. They eat up space, then it becomes a manual process move them off and delete them

Sddc support bundle get generated on the /dev/mapper/data_vg-vmware partition , which has 63gb space allocated. keep logs of 63gb will not make any sense.

/dev/mapper/data_vg-vmware 63G 257M 60G 1% /var/log/vmware  -> this is where ur logs are saved. it already 63GB . which is more than enough . 
tmpfs 1.6G 0 1.6G 0% /run/user/1000

if run below command 

/opt/vmware/sddc-support/sos --sddc-manager-logs


it will generate all the components logs . it will 10+GB space. 


instead of running the full logs , generate the logs of only required bundle . 


use the sos tool it will give u below options


Log Collections Options:
--esx-logs Collect ESXi logs
--vc-logs Collect vCenter Server logs
--sddc-manager-logs Collect SDDC-Manager logs
--psc-logs Collect PSC logs
--nsx-logs Collect NSX logs
--li-logs Collect Log Insight logs
--vrealize-logs Collect vRealize components logs (vRA, vROps, vRSLCM,


but ideally the logs will be generated by sos tool and it will be saved on root. 

once logs are generated
