I tried configuring custom log in log analytics to fetch logs from a container which is inside a VM.Found that custom logs should be enabled in order fetch the logs.But I could'nt enable custom logs as there in no preview features option available in my OMS portal.

And I got zero resutls in log search for the configured custom log/

Please do not use OMS portal anymore. That will going to be deprecated very soon. Log Analytics and other services were moved to Azure Portal. Custom logs can be find in the blade of the Log Analytics workspace under Advanced Settings -> Data -> Custom logs. Does not needs to be enabled specifically it only needs to be configured.
