MustGather information 3.0: how to collect relevant details for support.

When opening a support ticket, please provide the following information:

Server Logs

1. Always no matter what the issue is, please provide the full CPM Server logs using the link at the top right of the screen:
    
UI or Download logs not working?
If you are unable to connect to the CPM GUI, please connect to the CPM Server over SSH (using "cpmuser" and your assigned key) and perform these commands:
sudo su

tar cvzf /tmp/cpm_logs.tar.gz /var/log/cpm
cp /tmp/cpm_logs.tar.gz ~cpmuser
chmod o+r ~cpmuser/cpm_logs.tar.gz
           Since collecting logs over SSH doesn't update the Backup View Report in the logs folder, you have to download it manually.
          
If stability/availability of the CPM Server is in question,
please provide the Apache and MySQL logs as well:
sudo su

tar cvzf /tmp/apache2_conf.tar.gz /etc/apache2
cp /tmp/apache2_conf.tar.gz ~cpmuser
chmod o+r ~cpmuser/apache2_conf.tar.gz

tar cvzf /tmp/apache2_logs.tar.gz /var/log/apache2
cp /tmp/apache2_logs.tar.gz ~cpmuser
chmod o+r ~cpmuser/apache2_logs.tar.gz

tar cvzf /tmp/mysql_logs.tar.gz /var/log/mysql
cp /tmp/mysql_logs.tar.gz ~cpmuser
chmod o+r ~cpmuser/mysql_logs.tar.gz
Apache logs may be quite big, usually tens of megabytes compressed.
They can not be sent through email or uploaded into the Support Portal, please ask the support team for FTP instructions

Agent Logs

2. If an Agent is involved in the issue, please provide:
a) Agent logs (located in the "logs" subfolder of the installation directory)
b) System and Application Event Logs saved as CSV (must be saved using the local Event Viewer on the protected instance, not a remote one).
c) System Information saved as NFO

ADFS (IDP)

3. If the issue is ADFS (IDP) related, please provide in addition to CPM Server logs:
a) Output of the following PowerShell commands:
    1) Get-AdfsProperties
    2) Get-AdfsEndpoint
    3) Get-AdfsRelyingPartyTrust
