BODS - Logs in C:

Hello Experts,

I noticed that all BODS logs are generated in C:\ instead of D:\ where the BODS has been installed.

I checked the environment variable and it has set on this way in my server:

C:\ProgramData\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services

I read the article below that has the good explanation from

Chethan Lingaraju

https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3792047 and

says to change "Change the location of your jobserver logs, also moved as a result of the same steps."

It is not clear for me which parameter should I set in the DSConfig file once all logs are generated in this path

C:\ProgramData\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services

The parameters would be just like this:


AL_JobServerPort1=3500

AL_JobServerRepoPrefix1=

AL_JobServerLogReDir1="D:\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services"

AL_JobServerLogDirectory1=log

What about the parameter

AL_JobServerName1=JBSVR?

Thanks,

    Thank you Denise.

    I checked that KBA but my DSAConfig fiel does not have the entry

    AL_JobServerName<xx>

    It just has:

    AL_JobServer]
    AL_JobServerPath ="D:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services/bin/al_jobserver.exe"
    AL_JobServerLoadBalanceDebug = FALSE
    AL_JobServerLoadOSPolling = 60
    AL_JobServerLoadRBThreshold = 10
    AL_JobServerLoadAlwaysRoundRobin = FALSE
    AL_JobServerAdditionalJobCommandLine =
    AL_JobServerThreadPoolDebug = FALSE
    ServiceDisplayName = SAP Data Services

    Thanks

    If you have a Job Server created then you must see an entry like following in %DS_COMMON_DIR%\conf\DSConfig.txt

    AL_JobServerName1=<JobServer name>
    AL_JobServerPort1=<port>
    AL_JobServerRepoPrefix1=
    AL_JobServerLogDirectory1=

    So add here:

    AL_JobServerLogReDir1=\\OtherLogLocation

    Also please note:

    - DSConfig,txt is extremely important - please take a backup before making any changes.

    - Beginning DS 4.2 SP6 Patch 2 onwards - you can change DS_COMMON_DIR during install\upgrade and point it to whatever location , if you do not then it defaults to C:\ProgramData\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services. Not sure what version/support pack you have, if you are lower than DS 4.2 SP6 or so - see if you can upgrade and change the location.

    Thank you Aasavari,

    In case that I have more than one job server, should I add all of them in the parameter ->

    AL_JobServerLogReDir1?
