Viewing Log Files

Updated: June 1, 2008

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

Depending on how you deployed RMS, log files are stored in a database server such as Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine Release A, Microsoft SQL Server 2005, or Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition. If you are using the full editions of SQL Server 2000 or SQL Server 2005, you can write filters to reduce the information that is stored in the log files. For instructions, see Help for SQL Server Enterprise Manager.

The size of a typical log entry is about 300 bytes. The following table describes the fields that are logged.
