How to avoid multi-GB log files from filling up system partition?

  Asked By: Simon    Date: Nov 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1475

I have a client with an extremely modest WSS 3.0 install on SBS 2003 who
ended up with a Sharepoint_Config log file that ballooned to over 4 GB
and nearly crashed the server. See
davidschrag.com/.../block-that-sharepoint-log. Can anyone
point me to some easy-to-follow instructions for keeping log files in
check without sacrificing data recovery options? SQL administration is
definitely not my strong suit.

I ran into the same problem and found a fix for this. I am not in the office
this week but when I get back in on Monday I'll send out how I fixed it.

1) Go to Central Administration
2) Click on 'Operations'
3) Click on 'Diagnostic Logging' from the Logging and Reporting section.
4) Change the path in the 'Trace Log' section. By default these log  files are
stored on the C drive...I changed the drive letter and have not had a problem
