Hi.

Is it possible to move exchange server log files by changing the path & then rebooting the server. That way when the server boots up it will automatically find the path to the new log?

thx

I dont see the new logs as being in the new location though?
The logs still reflect as in the default path of
C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\SRV01.log

Ok, This path belongs to Message tracking logs.

"By default, the modification of the tracking log file location takes effect at midnight coordinated universal time (UTC). After this change takes effect, the Exchange message tracking component creates new log files in the new location that you specified. However, previous log files are not moved to the new location. "
