Problem: Customer discovered that the ULS logs had stopped generating. Within the Logs file there were files but from an old date.
Troubleshooting: I looked in Event viewer and found this:
Tracing Service failed to create the trace log file at location specified in SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\LogDir Error 0x0: The operation completed successfully. . Traces will be written to the following directory: C:\Windows\SERVIC~2\LOCALS~1\AppData\Local\Temp\.
- In Central Admin go to Monitoring>>Configure diagnostic logging
- changed the ‘Path’ value to C:\Temp and then back to D:\SharePoint\Logs
(They have the logs being written to the D drive which is common, changing it back and forth resolved this problem)
Fedor vs Arlovski: This was an easy one that was a weird resolution but it worked. Kind of like when Fedor was getting pushed back by Arlovski, and then decided to throw a Hail Mary punch to his face, knocking him out cold.
