We have a RPC server running under Windows 2000 which services RPC requests from z/OS.
The RPC Server runs great but we need to restart nightly due to constraints with our mainframe service provider. The restarts are handled using Windows Task Scheduler, which works great.
The problem is that when the service starts up it basically over-writes the existing logfile. The upshot is that we cannot review old logs when a problem occurs.
Is there a parameter we can supply to the RPC server to roll the log files on startup? or Even just append to the existing file?
we currently use the ‘entirex.server.logfile’ parameter to define the logfile name and location.
I can do a workaround with a DOS script in our startup, but I am hoping for a more elegant solution.
