Changing the directory where log files are located
You can change the location of the local log file and the statistics log files. You cannot change the file names. The default location for the log files for Solaris and Linux is opt/SYMC Scan/log. The default location for 32-bit Windows platform is C:\Program Files\Symantec\Scan Engine\log\ and C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\Scan Engine for 64-bit Windows platform.
Symantec Protection Engine creates a new local log file for each day. The file names have the following format: SSEyyyymmdd.log, where yyyy is the year, mm is the month, and dd is the day.
The disk space that is required for the log files varies, depending upon your scan volume, associated activity, and how long you retain the log files. The specified location must be large enough to accommodate these files. If you change the log file location, old log files remain in the former directory and are not removed during uninstallation. Old logs must be removed manually.
