SharePoint_Config_log.LDF file on Fim Portal Servers growing large RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have an issue with the SharePoint_Config_log.LDF file continually growing on both our FIM Portal servers. It has taken quite a while to get as big as it is (21gb) and since it never reduces and only grows, the disk is slowing filling up.

    WSS_Content_log.LDF has the same issue but it only 5gb for now so not as big a concern to me. Both files live here:


    I found this post about the issue in the SharePoint legacy forums:

    I am not sure how to run the suggested commands as there is no SQL engine on either of the Portal servers-- so I am not sure how to even access these databases. Should SQL be installed? I do not have a lot of SQL knowledge (or SharePoint really).

    Has anyone else had this problem and how did you resolve it? Our FIM version is 2010 (not R2) and its running on Server 2008 R2.

    Thanks :)

  • Hello,

    It's seems that your Sharepoint is installed in standalone mode, so DB are on a SQL Server Express.

    Use SQL management studio (from another server, your FIM SQL Server for example) and connect to FIMPortalServer\SQLEXPRESS. You will be able to perform the actions pointed by your link.
