Hi Everyone,
There are lots of articles on how to do this but I still cannot get it to work.

https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/sa8.0/topics/task/operational/secure-access-system-archiving-specifying.html
http://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/uac5.0/topics/task/configuration/security-access-logs-archiving.html

I am making a mistake somewhere but cannot figure it out.
On my server side, I have installed Solarwinds SFTP/SCP, configured an IP address and a username/password
On the Juniper device's archiving page, I have entered the details for the SCP server -  Archive Server (ip address),Destination Directory, Username, Password and Method (SCP)

The Juniper articles say the destination directory must be "relative to the ftp root directory". What does that mean?
On my SCP server, I would like the files to be uploaded to C:\Juniper. So what should I type in as the "destination directory" (see attachment)

The root directory is the default directory of the Solar Winds server, in this case C:\SFTP_Root.
You can change that in Solar Winds Settings / NCM Settings.
It would probably be a bad idea to set it to C:\ because if an attacker logged in, they could write anywhere on that drive.

Try using the recommended Destination Directory: juniper/log

Thanks Mark.
If I set my destination directory to juniper/log in the Juniper Mag, where would I find this directory on my SCP server?
Wouldn't it be on the C:\ drive?

Or am I missing something?

It would be C:\SFTP_Root\juniper\log, the default directory appended with your log directory.
