Log Insight Server

On the Log Insight server, you have the option to generate a support bundle from either the GUI or the CLI. As long as the GUI is accessible, the best practice is to generate the support bundle from the GUI.

IMPORTANT: The support bundle is written to the directory you are in when you issue the support bundle command.
