VMWare Error : System logs are stored on non-persistent storage

After installing ESXi on a SD-Card I received the error message :VMWare error Configuration Issues

The loggings are written to the SD-Card. That’s why you get this message.

What is the solution for this issue ?

First I got to see how the local datastore is called. This I am going to use to write the logging to.

Goto Settings of the server. Click on advanced settings.


In Syslog.global.logDir you will have to fill in [datastore]/<directory>

Just wait a couple of seconds and you will see that the error message is disappeared.
