where is the OS install log file on RHEL 6 server?


I need to document an inherited RHEL 6 server, prior to cloning and P2V-ing it for future use. My first task is to document all the details of how it was originally installed. I need to find any/all related install log files, such as Anaconda, Kickstart, YUM, RPM, RHN etc

Please can someone kindly point me how to best go about it?

I am a newbie, so please be kind and patient... thanks!!

/root/anaconda-ks.cfg is the file to tell you how it was originally installed.

for things configured after the fact:

/var/log/yum*
rpm -qa
