Path to log file

Sets an alternative path to which the log files are saved.

The path can point to a local drive or a remote, network-based one (a UNC path). Remote paths can be useful in large, distributed environments but they can create significant network traffic, which may be inappropriate for log files. For provisioned, virtual machines with a persistent hard drive, set a local path to that drive. This ensures log files are preserved when the machine restarts. For virtual machines without a persistent hard drive, setting a UNC path allows you to retain the log files but the system account for the machines must have write access to the UNC share. Use a local path for any laptops managed by the offline profiles feature.


If this setting is not configured here, the value from the .ini file is used.

If this setting is not configured here or in the .ini file, the default location "%SystemRoot%\System32\Logfiles\UserProfileManager" is used.

If a UNC path is used for log files then Citrix recommends that an appropriate access control list is applied to the log file folder to ensure that only authorized user or computer accounts can access the stored files.

Supported on: At least Profile management 2.1.0
