In VPlex each user session is logged in the /var/log/VPlex/cli/session.log_<username>

The simplest way to check for which user performed an action on VPlex is to use the following command ex:


service@management-server:> ​grep -il "command" /var/log/VPlex/cli/​session.log_*

 

Output example
/var/log/VPlex/cli/session.log_user-1_localhost

 

 

Notes:

If the session log files have been wrapped try to check old CD logs that may contain this files.
