dataservicecomponents.log expanding / bloating


This is a known issue with Server 2008 and can be rectified by the following;

The DataServiceComponents.Log is located at: C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Logs\MonitoringServiceLogs

The DataServiceComponents.Log is constantly in use by the Windows SBS Manager Service so before you can delete it open up services by click ‘Start‘ then ‘Run‘ and typing in ‘Services.msc‘ then hit ‘Enter‘ or left clickOK‘. Find the service and stop it then go to the DataServiceComponents.Log location as specified above and delete the log file.

Once you’ve completed the above step be sure to restart the service – this will automatically generate a new blank DataServiceComponents.Log file.
