Maintaining log files on a shared resource in Windows
You can store the Symantec Protection Engine log files on a shared resource. Make sure that the shared resource has adequate disk space. To optimize security, you should restrict full access rights on the shared resource to the administrator user of the host on which Symantec Protection Engine is installed.
To enhance Symantec Protection Engine performance, maintain the log files locally instead of writing log data to a remote, shared resource.
Before you perform the following procedure, ensure that you are an administrator of the host on which Symantec Protection Engine is installed. Also ensure that you have full permissions on the shared resource.
