Sizes of SMB event logs are too small in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

Symptoms

The sizes of the following server message block (SMB) event logs are too small in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2:

  • In SMB Client, the size of the Operational log is only 1 megabyte (MB). This limits the log to approximately 1,700 events.
    This is probably not enough for a compute cluster.

  • In SMB Server, the sizes of the Operational, Connectivity, and Security logs are each only 1 MB. This limits the logs to approximately 1,700 events.
    This is probably not enough to diagnose critical issues on a storage cluster.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, install update 2919355. After you apply this update, the size of each of the logs is increased to 8 MB.
