    Have you checked Admin guide ?
    Log location can be controlled by BO_Trace.ini

      Hi Anutosh,

      System Configuration Wizard is available in CMC for BI 4.1.

      This utility is not available in BO XI 3.1, the version you are using.

      So, as Denis mentioned for BO XI 3.1 you can change the location of the log files using BO_Trace.ini file. Traces are generated in the “C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\logging” folder by default. However you can change the location where the logs are to be written by using log_dir option in the BO_trace.ini. To do this, just add the below line to the existing BO_Trace.ini file.

      Eg. log_dir = "C:/Temp_location";

      Note the forward slash while specifying the directory structure.

      For more information on tracing, you can refer to the following SAP Notes:

      1274825 - How to configure server tracing using the BO_trace.ini file in XI3.1

      1335757 - Enabling and disabling tracing in XI 3.1 for specific services without requiring a restart

      Hope this helps.

    You may required to move the logs to a shared location based on Age. Since you have 3 node cluster you may required to move logs from all 3 nodes to your shared log path. Check here to get an idea
