IssueRedirect the Radius log files to a different directory
Resolution

The PrivateDir setting in the radius.ini sets the destination directory on the local host where server log files are stored.

The Default value is the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier directory:"Program Files\RSA Security\RSA Authentication Manager\radius\Service". To use a non-default location, you must move or copy the database, the dictionary files, the *.xml files, and the system directory and its contents to the new directory. After you restart the Steel-Belted Radius service, the server log is created in the new directory.

Uncomment [Configuration].

Uncomment PrivateDir and enter the location where you want the log files to be stored.


Example of a un-editted radius.ini file:

;[Configuration]
;LogLevel                   = 0
;TraceLevel                 = 0
;LogfilePermissions         = owner:group mode ; UNIX only
;Apply-Login-Limits         = yes
;PrivateDir                 =
;CheckMessageAuthenticator  = 0
;ClassAttributeStyle        = 2
;LogfileMaxMBytes           = 0
;NoNullTermination          = 0
;DisablePromptAttribute  = 0

after setting the PrivateDir option:

[Configuration]
;LogLevel                   = 0
;TraceLevel                 = 0
;LogfilePermissions         = owner:group mode ; UNIX only
;Apply-Login-Limits         = yes
PrivateDir                 = C:\TEMP\Radius
;CheckMessageAuthenticator  = 0
;ClassAttributeStyle        = 2
;LogfileMaxMBytes           = 0
;NoNullTermination          = 0
;DisablePromptAttribute  = 0

 

Notes

 

NOTE: You cannot write server log files to a mapped or shared drive.
