Why rhevm-log-collector fails with "ERROR: Failed to collect logs from: 10.x.x.x; [Errno 2] No such file or directory"?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • I did minimal installation of RHEL and installed RHEV-M after that. Running rhevm-log-collector after that failed to collect sosreports from hypervisors with below error.
