I've noticed that the size of a file WSS_AdminService.log every user profile setting eg. in C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\Temp is about 2GB currently. I understand that this file is updated by wssadmin.exe (the Windows SharePoint Services Administration service).
1. we have many users who are no longer using the account to login to the server, can i delete teh file then?
2. is there a way that i can allow only a single file WSS_AdminService.log in a specific user account to be access by wssadmin.exe? in this case we can save more HDD space. because, if we have more than 50 users account, then 50 * 2GB and it's already 100GB. instead of 100GB, can we just make it 2GB and this file is share by all the sharepoint users?
Does anyone have any insight into how I might alter what is logged or how often, or even just to persuade it to 'housekeep' better, as the file continues to grow (reaching 750MB on the first server I noticed this on)? As far as I can see it is not related to the Diagnostic logging settings in Central Administration > Operations.
Renaming the file to append a date on a regular basis is my current solution - a new copy is then created by WSS Admin on its next log cycle.
