ESXi 5.1: logging to lun instead of local (USB)

Hi,

Which setting should be used for logging on ESXi since I can see 2 settings:
ESXi, Configuration Tab then Syslog,
-global Syslog.global.logdir
-Scratchconfig

We use the scratchconfig but what about the global, syslog.global.logdir?

Please advise.

We use

Syslog.global.logDir AND Syslog.global.logHost

and then we specify a shared storage location, for each host
