Maintaining and Troubleshooting

Maintain Message Tracking Logs

If you allow log files to accumulate on the server, they can consume a large portion of disk space and affect performance. You should remove log files periodically; however, be sure to leave log files on the server long enough for you to review files if a problem occurs with your message flow.

To specify how long log files remain on a server:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. In the console tree, double-click Servers, right-click a server, and then click Properties.
  3. On the General tab, in Log file maintenance, select the Remove log files check box.
  4. In Remove log files older than (days):, type the number of days that you want a file to be stored in the Exchsrvr\servername.log directory before it is removed.
