In the event that you encounter a problem using Lotus Notes Traveler on your Android device and you are unable to resolve the problem on your own, you can enable logging, reproduce and record the problem, and submit your troubleshooting logs to the System Administrator.
Using the Android, the user encounters a problem, resulting in an error message

Select Menu > Settings > Logging > Enable Logging
You can view the information collected in the log file under the Tools menu in the Lotus Notes Traveler program.
Select Menu > Tools > View Log.
With logging now enabled, attempt to reproduce the problem. To help your System Administrator resolve your issue, it is important to demonstrate the problem with logging turned on.
Reproduce the problem, generating the same error message
