Change adapter.log location


I would like to change the location and size/number of adapter log files.

According to the online help it is not allowed.

Who has experienced the same question (and hopefull answer) as to what risk we have if we change the file ??

Online docu:


This menu option is only available for users with the Administrator role.

Choose Traces to display the internal traces of the adapter engine. The contents of these files

are essentially only required by the SAP Hotline for the detailed analysis of problems and are

not necessary for the day-to-day operation of the Adapter Engine. For this reason, this section

is not documented.

In the standard configuration, five files are written, each 2MB in size. The current file can be

identified from the time stamp. If required, the most recent 10 MB of trace information for the

Adapter Engine is available here. The size or number of these files and the scope of the

information is controlled by the file in the directory tech_adapter.

You must only change this file if requested to do so by the SAP Hotline.
