For gathering the necessary diagnostic information on Linux systems, see Linux System Report

AcronisInfo is a command-line application that gathers the diagnostic files listed below, puts them in a temporary folder, and archives them into systeminfo_<date>_<time>.zip. The temporary folder is then deleted. You may be asked for AcronisInfo output by an Acronis Customer Service representative.

AcronisInfo has been integrated into most of the Acronis products

Please also consider the following points:

  • The AcronisInfo utility should be run on the machine where the issue occurs. For example, if there is an issue with remote backup, the utility should be run on the machine with Acronis Agent, and not on the machine with Acronis Management Console;
  • If you are not sure from what machine to obtain the information, please run the AcronisInfo utility on all the machines that take part in the operation that fails;
  • Please remember that you may still have to gather some information manually, e.g. SnapAPI logs, MS SQL database logs, etc. If this needs to be done, an Acronis Support Representative will notify you;
  • Please check the consistency of the information within the created archive.
