How to configure Log file generation

Hi,

I am in a migration project. Currently the OS is Unix. After migration it is going to be Windows.

So we want to change the log files being created in Unix to Windows.

Can anyone suggest any settings in SAP for the log file.

Regards,

Gijoy

    Hi,

    My understanding is if it is created by SAP Application standard program you dont have to worry . If it is generated by a custom program you need to talk to your developer to check.

      Hi Neel/Ervin,

      Thanks a lot for the information.

      One quick question.

      Do we need to have a file server for the files to be stored. We do have lot of external applications which accesses lot of files from SAP.

      Is this file server going to be folder in Windows itself.

    Hi Gijoy,

    can you please reformulate your question for better understanding?

    The log location and tracing severity setup mechanism is platform independent.

    After migration there's no necessary step(s) to be taken, the logs will be created in the same way on windows as on unix under your current sap installation folder (e.g. defaultTrace is on unix under /usr/sap/.../j2ee/cluster/server<n>/log , on windows this will be <DRIVE:>\usr\sap\...\j2ee\cluster\server<n>\log)

    I hope this answers your question.

    Best Regards,

    Ervin

      Hi Gijoy,

      You can have either a separate file server for that or if you have enough space on the same server in which SAP is installed then you can use the same and yes it would be folder on the server. Also, you need to talk to developer and make sure the paths are maintained properly in the code.
