We just noticed that the SharePointConfig log file on our SBS2008 server is over 400 GB and growing very quickly (80 GB over the last 3 days). The database is under 20 GB. I have searched the internet for solutions and all require connecting to the SQL instance through the SQL Server Management studio.
Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find the database in the Management Studio interface. I can browse to the mdb file and log file with Windows Explorer. Is there a trick to connecting?
I know that SharePoint is integral to SBS, so am reluctant to disable. Is there a way to at least stop the logging process?
Short of that, will temporarily disabling SharePoint affect anything other than Remote Web Workplace? We have a new server on order that will not use SBS, so I just need a solution to get us through the next two weeks. At the rate the log is growing, we will be out of space in a couple of days.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
