Setting up activity logging
The following procedure describes the process of setting up activity logging for Server for NFS.
|To set up logging using the Windows interface|
Open Services for Network File System: click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services for Network File System (NFS).
If necessary, connect to the computer you want to manage.
Right-click Server for NFS, and then click Properties.
Click the Activity Logging tab.
In Server for NFS Events, select the events to log from the following options:
Mount and unmount requests
Lock and unlock requests
Read and write requests
Create and delete requests
- Mount and unmount requests
To save the settings, click Apply.
- By default, no events are logged. If recording activity logs to a text file, the log file must be on your local computer. To stop logging an event, clear its check box.
- If you choose to record Server for NFS activities in the event log, the string corresponding to the file name could be truncated due to a system limitation. One solution to this problem is to record activity logs to a text file. On a server cluster, we recommend that you record activities to Event Viewer because its data replicates to all the nodes in the cluster. In this scenario, recording activities to a text file in addition to the event log can help associate complete file names with a particular activity log entry.
