Windows XPTo resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows XP. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
- The destination folder for all log files is set by this registry subkey:
- The maximum file size is set by the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM\Log File Max Size
The logging entry uses the following values:
- 0: Turns off logging.
- 1: Logs errors only.
- 2: Verbose logging.
The default value for the Log File Max Size entry is 64 kilobytes (KB). When a log file reaches this size, the log file will be backed up to Log_file_name.lo_, and a new log file starts collecting entries. The only exception to this is the Framework.log file. The Framework.log file continues to increase even after the file has exceeded the Log File Max Size setting.
During the DCPROMO process, the DefltDC.inf template is used to apply certain NTFS permissions, registry permissions, and default user rights. The DefltDC.inf template removes the previously configured delete permissions for the NETWORK SERVICE account again.
