Although I find connection details in the access.log file showing a status of 200, I am not sure what to look for for a successful disconnect.  However, I discovered that I can find both successful connect and disconnect information in error.log!  This confuses me even more as I would not expect to find successful events in an error log!

Can anyone explain why the info is in the error log rather than the access log, please?

As always, thanks for any help.

Richard Bartholomew

I think you might have missed the important lines all the data.

Source connections are, generally speaking, using PUT or SOURCE. The status code reflects the status of the mounting, so if a source successfully mounted the status will be a 200.
