Set-DtcLog

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/8/2017

SYNOPSIS

Modifies the log file settings of a DTC instance.

SYNTAX

Set-DtcLog [-DtcName <String>] [-Path <String>] [-SizeInMB <UInt32>] [-MaxSizeInMB <UInt32>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Set-DtcLog cmdlet modifies the log file settings of a Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) instance. Use the DtcName parameter to specify a DTC instance. This cmdlet also recreates the transactions log with new settings and restarts the DTC instance.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Set the log file path and file size

PS C:\> Set-DtcLog -Path "C:\Windows\system32\MSDtc\NewLog\" -SizeInMB 32 -MaxSizeInMB 1024
PS C:\> Get-DtcLog
MaxSizeInMB      : 1024
Path             : C:\Windows\system32\MSDtc\NewLog
SizeInMB         : 32

The first command sets the path for the DTC log file and specifies the file size. The second command confirms the change.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-DtcName

Specifies a DTC instance. The cmdlet modifies the log file for this instance. If you do not specify this parameter, or if you specify a value of Local, this cmdlet modifies the log file for the local DTC instance.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: n

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-MaxSizeInMB

Specifies the maximum file size of the new log file in MB.

Type: UInt32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Path

Specifies the physical or network path to store the new log file. If a log file already exists in the specified path it is overwritten.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: p

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-SizeInMB

Specifies the initial file allocation size of the new log file in megabytes.

Type: UInt32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: s

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: wi

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False
