Based on the Comment/Query of one of our Magic Subscriber “Kimjim” (http://middlewaremagic.com/weblogic/?p=1473#comment-4594) , We are going to see how we can edit the WebServer Logging like displaying the Client IP Adddress in the access Log of a Server by adding (Extended Loging Formats c-ip) and changing the various attribute of Logging in one go.
This script also demonstrates how we should use the edit() , activate() and startEdit() kind of functions inside the WLST Script if we are migrating our WLST Scripts from WebLogic 8.1 because in WebLogic 8.1 the change control (Lock & Edit) feature was not available in the Admin Console.
Step1). Write the following WLST Script somewhere in your file system:
connect('weblogic','weblogic1','t3://localhost:7001') domainConfig() managedServers=cmo.getServers() print 'Found ' + `len(managedServers)` + ' managed servers' for managedServer in managedServers: try: edit() startEdit() serverName = managedServer.getName() print '\t\t==================='+serverName+'====================' cd('/Servers/'+serverName+'/WebServer/'+serverName+'/WebServerLog/'+serverName) cmo.setLogTimeInGMT(false) cmo.setLogFileFormat('common') cmo.setELFFields('c-ip date time time-taken bytes cs-method cs-uri sc-status') activate() print ' ' print ' ' except java.lang.Exception, ex: print 'Exception on Changing the Log Attributes: ' + ex.toString()
Step2). Now we need to set the CLASSPATH and PATH environment variables using setWLSEnv.sh or setDomainEnv.sh script.
Step3). Run the WLST Script java WebLogic.WLST changeLogFormats.py
java weblogic.WLST changeLogFormats.py Initializing WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) ...
