Viewing installation logs from the GUI installation program

When you use the GUI installation program, the Installation Summary panel displays the location of the installation log file. From this panel, you can invoke the Log Viewer utility to view the installation log file.

Each installation instance is logged on a separate tab, and the most recent installation is displayed on the first tab. The log displays information events, configuration events, warnings, and errors. Entry details appear in the lower section of the panel.
