On a 10.7 (10.7.5 to be precise) Mac OS X Server machine, there are repeated error messages in Console:

ProfileManager: Unable to create ProfileManager log file at '/var/log/devicemgr/profilemanager.log' (No such file or directory)

Path /var/log/devicemgr does not exist.

How to fix this error and thus remove the message from console?


The trick was this command in Terminal.app:

$ sudo /bin/ln -s /Library/Server/ProfileManager/Logs/ /var/log/devicemgr
