SQL Server TFC v.2.0.0 is not configured in the LogRhythm Client Console, it is configured by modifying lrtfc.ini. Depending on your installation, the configuration file can be found in one of the following locations:
- 32-bit: C:\Program Files\LogRhythm\LogRhythm SQL Server Trace File Converter\config
- 64-bit: C:\Program Files(x86)\LogRhythm\LogRhythm SQL Server Trace File Converter\config
- 32-bit: C:\Program Files\LogRhythm\LogRhythm SQL Server 2012 Trace File Converter\config
- 64-bit: C:\Program Files(x86)\LogRhythm\LogRhythm SQL Server 2012 Trace File Converter\config
SQL Server TFC logs are written to lrtfc.log in the installation’s logs directory.
To configure any of the available options in the file, be sure to uncomment the line — delete the leading # symbol if necessary — and change the configuration value after the = sign.
When you are finished modifying the configuration, be sure to save lrtfc.ini and start or restart the LogRhythm SQL Server Trace File Converter service.
Source files will be deleted from the source directory when conversion is complete.
