Server for NFS supports a rich set of logging settings that you can use to configure the level and the type of logging that you want to use. You can configure logging so that events are logged to either the Windows Event Log or to a pure ASCII file, which you can view and modify for later use. You can use either a command line or the graphical user interface (GUI) to configure logging.
You can configure Server for NFS to log events to the Windows Event Log, to an external file, or to both locations. The settings for the type of events that are logged are the same for either location.
To configure Server for NFS Logging:
Log on to the Server for NFS computer by using an administrative level account.
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows Services for UNIX, and then click Services for UNIX Administration.
Click the Server for NFS pane.
Click to select the Log events to event log check box to turn on logging to the Windows Event Log.
Click to select the Log events in this file check box, and then type a destination file name to turn on logging to an external file.
Type the maximum file size for the logging file.
Click any of the following settings to configure the type of events that you want to log:
Mount: Mount and unmount requests
Locking: File locking and unlocking
Read: Requests to read files
Write: Requests to write to a file
Create: File creation requests
Delete: File deletion requests
All: All of the logging types
NOTE: If you click All events, the log file may grow rapidly.
