    CA (PIM) Tech Tip by Mohammed Mustansir, Sr. Support Engineer for 4/12/2016

     

    1. Stop Jboss service

     

    2. edit the following file

    <JBossDir>\server\default\conf\log4j.xml

     

    <appender name="FILE" class="org.jboss.logging.appender.DailyRollingFileAppender">

    Inside here are 'param' tags. By default there is a param tag for 'Threshold' in the FILE appender, but there is one for the CONSOLE appender.

     

    If this tag does not exist, then add it:

    <param name="Threshold" value="ERROR"/>

     

    3. verify the value is set to ERROR or WARN

     

    4. start Jboss service
