CA ARCserve Backup creates trace log files for backups and restores of Microsoft Exchange Server data. Trace log files provide you with data that you can use to debug problems that occur when performing document level and database level backups and restores of Microsoft Exchange Server data.
By default, CA ARCserve Backup stores Microsoft Exchange Server trace log files in the following directories on the Microsoft Exchange Server systems:
Note: Trace log files contain the file extension .trc.
- Database level backups:
C:\Program Files\CA\ARCserve Backup agent for Microsoft Exchange Server\DBLOG
- Document level backups:
C:\Program Files\CA\ARCserve Backup Agent for Microsoft Exchange Server\DocumentLevel\LOG
Over time, many trace log files can consume a large amount of free disk space on your CA ARCserve Backup server. To free disk space on your backup server, you can configure CA ARCserve Backup to delete trace logs automatically.
Important: This article contains information about modifying the registry.
Before you modify the registry, make sure to create a back up of the registry and ensure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem may occur.
For more information about how to back up, restore and edit the registry, please review the relevant Microsoft Knowledge Base articles on support.microsoft.com.
Steps to configure automatic log trace deletion for Exchange Server backups:
- Log in to the CA ARCserve Backup server and open Windows Registry Editor.
- Do the following:
¦ For database level backups, locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\CA ARCserve Backup\ExchangeDBAgent\Parameters\AgentLogLife
¦ For document level backups on Windows x86 systems, locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\CA ARCserve Backup\ExchangeDocumentAgent\Parameters\AgentLogLife
¦ For document level backups on Windows x64 systems, locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ComputerAssociates\CA ARCserve Backup\ExchangeDocumentAgent\Parameters\AgentLogLife
- Right-click AgentLogLife and click Modify on the pop-up menu.
The Edit DWORD Value dialog opens.
- In the Value Data field, specify the number of days that you want to retain the trace log files.
Note: The default value for AgentLogLife is 14.
The value specified for AgentLogLife is 14. The next time that you back up or restore Microsoft Exchange Server data, the agent checks the trace log files directory on the CA ARCserve Backup server and deletes trace log files that were not modified in the last 14 days. With a value of 0, CA ARCserve Backup will not delete trace log files.
The new value is applied.
