Set-DtcLog

Set-DtcLog

microsoft.dtc.powershell.dll, msft_dtclogtask_v1.0.cdxml

Synopsis

Modifies the log file settings of a DTC instance.

Syntax

Set-DtcLog [-AsJob] [-CimSession] [-DtcName] [-MaxSizeInMB] [-Path] [-SizeInMB] [-ThrottleLimit] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Set-DtcLog cmdlet modifies the log file settings of a Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) instance. Use the DtcName parameter to specify a DTC instance. This cmdlet also recreates the transactions log with new settings and restarts the DTC instance.

Parameters

-AsJob <SwitchParameter>

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-ThrottleLimit <Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet.

The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Examples

Example 1: Set the log file path and file size

The first command sets the path for the DTC log file and specifies the file size. The second command confirms the change.

PS C:\> Set-DtcLog -Path "C:\Windows\system32\MSDtc\NewLog\" -SizeInMB 32 -MaxSizeInMB 1024
PS C:\> Get-DtcLog
MaxSizeInMB      : 1024
Path             : C:\Windows\system32\MSDtc\NewLog
SizeInMB         : 32
