    How to change the SCCM Client Log files size to Max value that you want

    Sometimes or other we might need to retain the max size of log files for reading/analyzing.

    Here are some useful info………… in this regards………….

    Client side reference registry

    For X86 systems

    -          HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CCM\Logging\@GLOBAL

    For X64 systems

    -          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\CCM\Logging\@GLOBAL


    The reference key is Log Maxsize

    I tried to change manually by regedit how it is showing error as can’t be edited the value..

    So I depended on below WMI script

    ' VBScript to change the Log File Size on a ConfigMgr client

    ' Change the 500000 to your required size in bytes


    Dim newLogMaxSize

    Dim sMachine

    newLogMaxSize = 500000

    sMachine = "."

    set oCCMNamespace = GetObject("winmgmts://" & sMachine & "/root/ccm")

    Set oInstance = oCCMNamespace.Get("SMS_Client")

    set oParams = oInstance.Methods_("SetGlobalLoggingConfiguration").inParameters.SpawnInstance_()

    oParams.LogMaxSize = newLogMaxSize

    oCCMNamespace.ExecMethod "SMS_Client", "SetGlobalLoggingConfiguration", oParams

    ' End of script


    So Do not change the registry value directly!


    The SDK shows the SetGlobalLoggingConfiguration Method in Class SMS_Client

    How to learn / Education

    Education has five aspects

    1. Information -- Often we think information is education, but it is only one aspect of education.

    2. Concepts -- Concepts are the basis for all research. You need to conceive in order to create.

    3. Attitude -- An integral aspect of education is cultivating the right attitude. Proper attitude at the right time and place determines your actions and behavior.

    4. Imagination -- Imagination is essential for creativity, for the arts. But if you get stuck in imagination, you may become psychotic.

    5. Freedom -- Freedom is your very nature. Only with freedom, do joy, generosity and other human values blossom. Without freedom, attitudes become stifling, concepts become a burden, information is of no value and imagination becomes stagnant.
    Just understand these five aspects of education.
