RRAS log files are written to the %windir%\tracing folder. Use this procedure to control the amount of detail that RRAS writes to the log files.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To configure logging in RRAS
  1. In the Routing and Remote Access MMC snap-in, in the navigation pane, right-click your server, and then click Properties. If you are using Server Manager, right-click Routing and Remote Access, and then click Properties.

  2. On the Logging tab, choose one of the following options:

    • Log errors only. This option writes only events that indicate error conditions to the log files. Although this results in the minimum log file size, the file does not include information that can be useful in diagnosing some connectivity issues.

    • Log errors and warnings. In addition to errors, this option also writes events that are raised when conditions exist that are outside of expected operations, but not necessarily indicative of errors.

    • Log all events. This option writes error and warning events and all informational events to the logs.

    • Do not log any events. This option disables all logging.

    • Log additional Routing and Remote Access information (used for debugging). This option instructs RRAS to include additional diagnostic information in the logs to assist with error diagnosis, connectivity issues, or performance issues. It can result in very large log files, so we recommend that you enable this option only when you are investigating a problem.

  3. Click OK to save your changes.
