Path of the log files in the Log file location box on the Configure Usage Analysis Processing page of Windows SharePoint Services Central Administration is truncated

Symptoms

You configure usage analysis processing in Windows SharePoint Services, and you specify the location where you want to store log files in the Log file location box on the Configure Usage Analysis Processing page of Windows SharePoint Services Central Administration.

When you do this, the path that appears in the Log file location box is truncated the next time that you view the page. Therefore, the log files are stored in the location that is specified by the truncated path. They are not stored in the folder that you originally specified.

Cause

This problem may occur if the path of the log file contains more than 100 characters. Windows SharePoint Services truncates the path of the log file in the Log file location box on the page to 100 characters. This occurs even though the maximum number of characters that you can specify for the path in the Log file location box is 200 characters.

Workaround

To work around this problem, store your log files in a different location. Make sure that the number of characters in the path of the folder where you want to store your log files is fewer than 100 characters.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

More Information

By default, log files for usage analysis processing are stored in the following folder, where Drive is the drive where Microsoft Windows Server 2003 is installed:
Drive:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\STS
A subfolder exists for each virtual server, and in each of these subfolders are folders that are created for each day. If you specify a different location to store log files, make sure that the STS_WPG group has Read, Write, and Update permissions to the folder.
