turn off wss_adminservice.log

  Asked By: Hannah    Date: Apr 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4455

I'm getting involved in MOSS / WSS. We have a issue on w2k3 servers where the wss_adminservice.log located in the Default User profile is taking up a lot of space. I found a couple workarounds 1) mark the file as READ-ONLY 2) have a script to delete on a periodic basis. I ran process monitor on a w2k8 box, the wssadmin.exe process is trying to create the file, but it can't find the path located in the c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile path. Does anyone know of how to disable this option? The diagnostic logging doesn't appear to have any effect.

You’ll see the admin logging  on any box  that is performing operations that
need to use the admin service (i.e. some timer job needs to provision an
IIS web
site or do something that needs admin access; it does it via the admin

In a single Server you would not see this log  as Admin service is disabled.

Removing permission out of that file  is a good workaround. We should not
disable the Admin Service.
