You can change the location of the log files for Microsoft Dynamics AX clients by using the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Configuration utility. Some businesses and organizations centralize the storage location for log files to improve client performance. The Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Configuration utility accepts variables in the paths of log files. For example, the default path is %USERPROFILE%\Microsoft\DynamicsAx\Log.

  1. Open the configuration utility. Click Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Configuration.

  2. Verify that the configuration target and configuration that you want to modify are selected.

  3. On the General tab, in the Log directory box, type the path where you want to store the log files, and then click OK.
