Maintenance Management: Is There a FED LOG® Download Alternative?

BLUF: Downloaded copies of FED LOG® can be burned onto a disk for use on non-networked MSDs, but there are some cautions.

FED LOG®  Logo

Dear Half-Mast,

Is there any way to get a copy of FED LOG® without an Internet connection? The maintainers in our motor pool don’t have networked MSDs and their copies of FED LOG® are woefully out of date.

Dear Master Sergeant,

Unfortunately, there’s no way to get a copy of FED LOG® without downloading it but that doesn’t mean all is lost. A maintenance leader could use a networked computer to download a copy of FED LOG®, burn the files to a disk and use the disk to install FED LOG® onto the non-networked MSDs.

If you use this method, keep these two things in mind:
  1. The data in FED LOG® is CUI (formerly FOUO). Protect it and any burned CDs/disks accordingly.
  2. The FED LOG® files are updated monthly, so you’ll need to update the MSDs regularly. Updates are available on the first business day of each month.
