    Default Large zmsetup.*-*.log file

    We are in the testing phase with a Zimbra Open Source set up.
    A few weeks ago I noticed that the hard drive space was filled up and managed to locate a very large log file in the tmp folder.
    Having deleted that one, I have now noticed that another file appears to be increasing in size as well and I am unable to find what is attributing to this.
    The log file is named zmsetup.mmddyyy-hhmmss.log
    I would like to know what process is writing to this file and how to limit size or prevent it from becoming as massive as the previous one.
    Thanks in advance.

    Once ZCS is installed the file is copied to the ZCS directories and nothing writes to the file in /tmp - I'd suggest you look in the file to see what it contains.

    I would like to open it, but currently it is somewhat large.
    There is a smaller one that is currently 54MB.
    I will have to locate the process using them and delete manually.
    Hopefully another one doesn't pop up in its place.

    As I've said, this file is only created during the initial Zimbra install and nothing writes to it after that. Take a look in the file first and see what the entries look like, you may be able to determine what creating the file from that information.
