I recently reinstalled my VMware servers using USB sticks. After the first reboot I noticed an yellow warning. When highlighting the different servers I noticed the “System logs are stored on non-persistent storage” warning.
This is how you can fix that :
Select a persistent (SAN?) storage that you can use and go to Browse Datastore.
Create a new folder
Give it a name.. 🙂
After that go to advanced settings bij the configuration tab of your ESX server.
Go to the Syslog tab.
Give the name of the datastore between brackets and the name of the folder you just created. Hit ok and you notice that the warning is gone :
