Log Directory

Hi,

Due to disk space issue I have planned to move logs out of system drives.
I want to add new disks on my servers and according to KB1825, change the registry key LogDirectory to point on new disks. I have some questions on how to proceed.

- Can we do the change with Veeam services up and just restart the services after the change. A reboot is needed ?
- Should we stop the Veeam services firstly ?
- Old logs must be moved on new location or can stay on system drives to be deleted after few days / weeks ?
- The registry key is available for Veeam B&R servers but is it ok for proxy / gateway servers ?

Thanks

Hi Anthony,

- The Veeam server needs to be restarted to clear the lock of the logs. So a reboot is certainly advised. If I am not mistaken it is possible by simply "restarting" all the veeam services but in such cases (locks...) I prefer windows to do a full restart.
- You do not need to stop the services first. Just make the changes, but before they go into effect, the reboot ;-)
- You can leave them there and delete when you feel they are not needed anymore
- Yes for proxies/ gateway servers (but it does mean you need to use the registry ON those servers

Cheers
