I'm trying to find ULS logs file, so I went and configured the diagnostic logging in the

central administration > Monitoring.

I've selected all the categories,

Set minimum level of trace

Event log at verbose

Set the file directory to : C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS.

But when I go into this file I can't see any log.What is the reason behind it and how I can I see my logs ?

Sounds like a permission problem!

Have you had any log files on that machine?

I have seen before in installations, that the web application pool users dont get added to the Performance Log Users

Computer > Manage > Configuration > Groups > Performance Log Users

You should also check if they are members of Performance Monitor Users group as well

  • Just did that, Someone told me to wait 24hours, so i'm gonna wait until tomorrow :) but it might be this :) Jul 30, 2012 at 9:22

Try Microsoft ULS Viewer and try to get Real time ULS log and see if you can save it or where it has been saved.

Microsoft ULS Log Viewer
