DHCP Server logs - Audit Log Paused

DHCP Server Logs stop logging when the file reaches 10MB in size and at the end of it states "Audit Log Paused"

I've manipulated the registry value here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Services\DHCPServer\Parameters\DhcpLogFilesMaxSize and set it to 125 in decimal format.

Regardless of what size i've set -- the log caps out at 10MB and then pauses.

Any ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

try below cmdlet:

Set-DhcpServerAuditLog -ComputerName dhcpserver -Enable True -Path C:\windows\dhcp\dhcpauditlog\ -MaxMBFileSize 150

Open in new window

check audit path log in database properties and restart dhcp server service once

if above did not worked then...

Add the DHCP service (NT SERVICE\DHCPServer) with read access in the root of the partition
