To Turn On or Off Logging

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To perform this procedure, you must be logged on locally to the administration Web site with a domain user account that is a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

Ensure that the RMS cluster has a connection to the database server and that the database service is started before turning on logging. If Message Queuing cannot deliver the logs to the logging database, it will keep the data in queue on the hard disk of the RMS server. It will continue to do this until all of the storage space on the server is full. RMS does not display an error in this condition, as the feature is meant to support logging during times when the connection to the SQL server is interrupted.
