Hi Experts,

I have 3 hosts in my vSphere HA cluster.
Just one host has a warning, see the pic.

Config Issues Logs
How clear this or get rid of it ?
Because this host has no local storage.

In vSphere Client, select the host in the inventory panel.
Click the Configuration tab, then click Advanced Settings under Software.
Ensure that Syslog.global.logDir points to a persistent location.
The directory should be specified as [datastorename] path_to_file where the path is relative to the datastore. For example, [datastore1] /systemlogs.

If the Syslog.global.logDir field is empty or explicitly points to a scratch partition, make sure that the field ScratchConfig.CurrentScratchLocation shows a location on persistent storage.
