Thanks Will,

As far as I know anything sensitive is removed or obfuscated (vcenter password displayed as
h**********).  IP addresses and hostnames are shown.
Users may want to use a tool like SED to replace IP addresses or internal domain names

Kind regards,

Paul Angus

I like this initiative Paul.  I just wanted to check with you.  Do you know if there is any
confidential information like credentials or the like that is logged in the management server
log?  I thought we had done a push at one point to make sure no sensitive data was logged,
but I don't remember for sure.  I think knowing the answer to this will help people feel more
comfortable uploading logs.

Thanks for the valuable initiative...
