I would like to store Windows Server 2008 R2 DHCP audit logs for more than the default 7 days interval. I also want to make sure to give the log file enough disk space to store all the DHCP client connections for a day without it overwriting the days previous entries. I need to be able to return to these logs days later to search for MAC addresses using particular IPs.

I have found where to redirect the logs, but not a setting for for overwriting logs. Can someone please recommend how best to do this?

Thank you

Also check the DHCP auditing detail to set the logfile size.
