log files in W3SVC1

    Question

  • Hi,

    On the hub transport server exchange 2010 I am running out space on c: drive. I have notice that on C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1 log files are getting very large. Can it be deleted or move some where else?

    What is the best practice?

    Cheers,

  • Do you have CAS roles installed on the same server?

    You can either zip the old logs and remove them to a safe location or delete them post backup.

  • You can do either, if you dont need them. Nothing critical in those logs anyway which will harm Exch, mainly for admin purposes.

    Here's a few tweaks you can make and schedule as you need.

  • I use this:

    http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/b50347d4-6f60-4716-87ba-ee4166359fa1

    It lets you limit your log growth by disk space usage and/or age, similar to the way disk space is managed for message tracking logs.


    [string](0..33|%{[char][int](46+("686552495351636652556262185355647068516270555358646562655775 0645570").substring(($_*2),2))})-replace " "

    LogParser is a great way to break these out.
