Issue

When using the command tabadmin ziplogs -l -n -d <date> for example (tabadmin ziplogs -l -n -d MM\DD\YYYY); only the config and zookeeper folders are returned. 

Environment

Tableau Server

Resolution

  1. Ensure that forward slashes are being used instead of back slashes in the date.
  2. Ensure that the date set is in the past.

Cause

Back slashes instead of forward slashes might be used in the date, or the date is set in the future and the logs do not exist.
