Configure logging

Updated: January 21, 2005

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

To configure logging

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Open Routing and Remote Access.

      Double-click Routing and Remote Access, and then double-click the server name on which you want to configure logging.

    • Open Internet Authentication Service.

      Double-click Internet Authentication Service.

  2. In the console tree, click Remote Access Logging.

  3. In the details pane, right-click any log file, and then click Properties.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using the Run As command rather than logging on with administrative credentials. If you have logged on with administrative credentials, you can also open Routing and Remote Access by clicking Start, clicking Control Panel, double-clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Routing and Remote Access. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.

  • To open Internet Authentication Service, click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Authentication Service.

  • If the Logging folder does not appear in Routing and Remote Access, then Windows Accounting is not enabled.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
