gitlab-ctl tail: cannot follow ‘-’ by name
/var/log/gitlab is a symlink like
root@gitlab:/var/log# ls -l | grep gitlab lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 2015-08-16 13:41 gitlab -> /gitlab-persistent/log/gitlab/
gitlab-ctl tail always fails with
root@gitlab:/var/log# gitlab-ctl tail tail: cannot follow ‘-’ by name
The same thing happens if
gitlab/ is a non-symlink directory containing symlinks.
Not a fun thing to have happen during a first-time gitlab setup, when you don't even know which logs you're supposed to be looking at.
