Log updates

If you use role-based administration:

For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

By default, computers log their updating activity. The default maximum log size is 1 MB. The default log level is normal.

To change the logging settings:

  1. Check which updating policy is used by the group(s) of computers you want to configure.
  2. In the Policies pane, double-click Updating. Then double-click the policy you want to change.
  3. In the Updating policy dialog box, on the Logging tab, leave Log Sophos AutoUpdate activity selected. In the Maximum log size field, specify a maximum size for the log in MB.
  4. In the Log level field, select Normal or Verbose logging.
    Verbose logging provides information on many more activities than usual, so the log will grow faster. Use this setting only when detailed logging is needed for troubleshooting.
