Investigating protection problems using the troubleshooting file on the client

To investigate client problems, you can examine the Troubleshooting.txt file on the client computer. The Troubleshooting.txt file contains information about policies, virus definitions, and other client-related data.

Symantec Technical Support might request that you email the Troubleshooting.txt file.

See Troubleshooting communication problems between the management server and the client.

To export the troubleshooting file from the client

  1. On the client computer, open the client.

  2. In the client, click Help > Troubleshooting.

  3. In the Management pane, under Troubleshooting Data, click Export.

  4. In the Save As dialog box, accept the default troubleshooting file name or type a new file name, and then click Save.

    You can save the file on the desktop or in a folder of your choice.
