Backup exec 11d beremote log

hi experts,

On one of our servers we have dramatically run out of disk space. On investigation it appears that the symantect backup exec logs are now 90 gig. The beremote logs seem to account for pretty much all of this disk space. What happens if i delete these logs/ how can i prevent them from growing so large in the future?

Kind Regards

You can safely delete the logs as they are required only by TECH SUPPORT
Ideally the beremote should not be running in debug mode unless you are actually trying to debug it.
If this is a server with only the remote agent running (RAWS) ,restart the service or edit the registry if enabled in the registry

if its on a Backup Exec server
Use BEUTILITY to manage  the logs
you can enable/disable the logs or even control the amount of information being logged

refer to the following for more information
