Section Number and Name: 

Describe the issue: 
The administration guide should consist information on configuration files and log files which are used in RHUA, CDS and its client system.

Also should have some basic troubleshooting pointers for common issues.

Suggestions for improvement: 
Configuration files

        /etc/qpidd.conf ( For qpid problems )
        RHUI 2.0.2+: /etc/pki/pulp/*
        pre RHUI 2.0.2: /etc/pki/content/*
        The answers file used with rhui-installer (wherever it was saved)

Log files and Debugging


        /root/.rhui/rhui.log* (assuming rhui-manager is run as root, which is  standard; however, if sudo is used, the .rhui dir is in the home directory of the user)
        /root/.rhui/rhui-installer.log (likewise as above)
        /var/log/messages (this is where Qpid logs)
        Sample Logging – Successful 'yum repolist'
            The two CDS nodes in this environment log this client activity to /var/log/httpd/ssl_access_log


    Console output from yum commands

Asked reviewers to look at bug and advise of applicability to RHUI 3 user guide
Comment 4 Irina Gulina 2016-07-22 09:45:06 EDT
Information on log and conf files was included in RHUI3 Guide. Currently (on July 22nd, 2016), the log and conf section needs some edition and then QE revision.
