NPS (IAS) - Changing Log Location RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Done a bit of searching, but haven't been able to find out online.

    I need confirmation as to whether or not the NPS/IAS Service restarts or requires a restart when the logs location is changed?

    I'm aware of the actual process to change the IAS Logs location, but am unsure as to whether this could potentially cause an outage.

    Could someone please confirm this for me?

    Thanks,

  • I'm thinking this may answer my own question... although it only really relates to log file formats, not location.

    Switching log file formats does not cause a new log to be created. If you change log file formats, the file that is active at the time of the change will contain a mixture of the two formats (that is, records at the start of the log have the previous format and records at the end of the log have the new format).
