Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click SoftGrid Management Console.
Expand SoftGrid Systems, expand server_name, and then expand Server Groups.
Right-click Default Server Group, and then click Properties.
Click the Logging tab.
Edit the existing log module.
Verify that the information that is entered is valid.
