Yesterday I received a nice tip from @Shaun_Gee. During the installation of the vSphere Syslog Collector you have to select the max size of the log files and when a rotation will happen. But how do you change this after the installation? The answer is straight forward, but unfortunately not well documented, thanks Shaun for sharing.
The vSphere Syslog Collector settings can be found under:
- Windows 2003 –> C:\Users\All Users\VMware\VMware Syslog Collector\vmconfig-syslog.xml
- Windows 2008 –> C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Syslog Collector\vmconfig-syslog.xml
If you open this file you can change all the settings you configured during the installation.
You never know when you might need it 🙂
