Required for debugging LFT services.

  1. Log on to the server that is hosting the LFT 2.0 Application.

  2. 2. Open file explorer and navigate to the default path C:\Lexmark\Lexmark_LFT\Logs.

    .

RelevanceHow to obtain (LFT 2.0)LFT 3.0 Locations

Not Applicable

  1. Open LFT 2.0 webpage.

  2. 2. In left-hand frame under the Administration section, select LFT Status.

  3. You will see the version in the bottom-right frame.

  1. Open LFT 3.0.

  2. Click on System Configuration.

Installation path of LFT and Oracle installations

RelevanceHow to obtain (LFT 2.0)LFT 3.0 Locations

Installation path may vary depending on which version of Oracle is used.

The default path for LFT is C:\Lexmark\Lexmark_LFT.

The default path for Oracle XE is C:\oraclexe.

C:\ProgramFiles\Lexmark\Fleetracker

LSM Data Points

LSM log file

RelevanceHow to obtain

Useful for understanding problematic behavior

  1. Log on to the server that is hosting LSM Application.

  2. Open file explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files\Lexmark\LSM \rXpress.log.

  3. Copy therXpress.log file and attach to escalation.

Screen Capture

RelevanceHow to obtain

Provides overview of problematic behavior

ALT + Print Screen or use a screen capture utility

Confirm rXpress service is running

RelevanceHow to obtain

Required service for LSM

  1. Open Windows Task Manager > select Processes tab.

  2. Confirm rXpress.exe and rXpressStart.exe are running.

Installation path of LSM

RelevanceHow to obtain

Not Applicable

The default path for LSM is C:\Program Files\Lexmark\LSM.

Note:  LSM is self-contained and does not rely on Oracle for data storage on the LSM collector.

Note:  The LSM installer writes into a flat file system that shows up as rXpress.rx in the installation directory. Deleting this file and restarting the LSM will remove all print data from the LSM collector. Configuration settings will remain, however, since they are stored in the registry.

Management Information Base (MIB) Data

This is required for device support issues. Collect MIB data using the iReasoning MIB Browser Free Personal Edition.

Note:  Exported data should be in XML format.

  1. Go to the MIB browser website.

  2. At the bottom of the screen, click “I Accept”.

  3. Select either setup.exe (for Windows) or mibbrowser.zip (for all other platforms).

  4. Install the MIB Browser.

    Note:  Please follow the on-screen instructions during installation.

  5. Launch the MIB browser icon.

  6. Enter the printer IP address in the address field.

  7. Click Operations, select Walk then click Go.

  8. After the data has loaded in the Result Table, click the disks icon to begin the XML data export.

  9. Go under File and Save Session.

Additional Oracle Database (DB) Information

For capacity issues, check the Oracle version size of the users.dbf file to determine whether the database (DB) has gone over its storage capacity.

  1. Determine Oracle Version to determine size capacity.

    Note:  To check the Oracle version, click Start > All Programs > View Oracle Version. Oracle 10g XE = 4 GB; Oracle 11g XE = 11 GB.

  2. Locateusers.dbf file and check size.

    Note:  This file determines DB size. Default Oracle install directory: C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\oradata\xe\users.dbf

  3. Check the size of users.dbf against the overall size capacity of the Oracle version being used.

    Note:  Issues will result if user.dbf is larger in size than Oracle version. Escalate DB issues immediately.
