Log File expansion RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have logging (text logging) set up on our windows 2008 server.  The log file properties are: create a new log file daily and when disk is full delte older log files.   I am loggin gthe following information accounting requests, authentication requests, periodic accounting status, periodic authentication status, and if logging fails discard connection requests. When I look at the event log I see event ID 6278, 6276, 6274, 6272. but they are only accumulating for view for about 3 to 4 hours.  I see event ID 4400 and 18 for months.  the files in windows\sustem32\logfiles are (IN11xxxx) are holding weekly data.  What I woukld like to do is hold more data to view for a day or so and get rid of the 4400 and 18 event IDs

  • Hi carmeister,


    Thanks for posting here.


    In this case, you may consider using SQL server to contain accounting log.

  • Hi Carmeister,

    Do you mean you configure the NPS to log the information daily, but you find that the NPS only logs the requests for 3-4 hours in the daily NPS log files. Is my understanding correct? Thanks.
