SharePoint 3 log file too large
Posted on 2010-08-16
We have a client with SharePoint 3 on SBS 2003. It was installed along side the standard SharePoint 2 as per Microsoft's guidelines. Currently, the SharePoint_Config...ldf log file is 7.8gb. I can't connect to it using the SQL Management Studio Express to run the shrink commands I have found online. Basically, I would rather have the space it's taking up then have SharePoint 3. In fact, we are putting SharePoint 3 on a separate server, so I don't need it at all on this SBS 2003 server.
Can I disable SharePoint and delete the log file? Again, I don't want it on this server anyway, and I need to get the space back that the log file is using.
