Content install log file

The BAO_content_install_log file contains the logs of the content installation, which you can use for troubleshooting installation problems.

When you install an adapter that does not have a corresponding module, the content installation program writes the following warning message to the log file:

LOG EVENT {Description=[Source roar folder does not exist for this adapter],
Detail=[Not all adapters have roar files so this may or may not be an error]} 

This warning message is informational and does not indicate that a problem occurred during the installation.

To troubleshoot problems that might have occurred during the installation, search for the BAO_content_install_log file for error messages.
