Configuring application logs

To define the application logging settings, perform the following steps:

  1. Perform the following steps in the Management Console tree:
    • To configure log settings for an unassigned Security Server, maximize the node of the relevant Security Server
    • To configure log settings for Security Servers belonging to one profile, maximize the Profiles node and inside it maximize the node of the profile for whose Security Servers you want to configure log settings.
  2. Select the Settings node.
  3. Expand the Diagnostics block of settings and perform the following actions:
    1. In the Logs folder field, specify the path to the folder for storing logs. You can reset the path to its default value by clicking the Default link (<Application setup folder>\logs).

      No system variables (such as %TEMP%) are allowed to use in this string.

      You are advised to avoid using network folders as the logs folder. They are not supported by the application.

      You can specify the path to the logs folder for each Security Server individually. This parameter cannot be defined for a profile.

      If you specify a different folder to store logs, the application starts creating log files in this new folder. Older log files remain in the previously selected logs folder at that. If the new logs folder does not exist, it will be created. If the new folder cannot be accessed (e.g., due to lack of rights), the application records logs to the default folder until access to the new one is granted. The application switches to the new logs folder within 30 minutes after access to that folder is granted.

    2. In the Log storage period spin box, specify the time period during which logs will be stored in the folder after being created. When this period expires, the application deletes all logs.

      The default value is 14 days.

    3. Configure the detail level. The detail level determines the detail of logging.
  4. Click the Save button.

The application starts recording events to logs in accordance with the settings defined.

If the application is running on a Microsoft Exchange server included in a DAG, the settings of logs that have been defined on one of the Microsoft Exchange servers will be automatically applied to the rest of the Microsoft Exchange servers included in the same DAG. You do not have to define the logging settings on other Microsoft Exchange servers in the same DAG.
