Currently my smvi logs are taking to much space on the server, is there a way for me to modify the location of these logs to a bigger storage system or can I compress these files ? The current location is (C:\Program Files\NetApp\Virtual Storage Console\smvi\server\log) .

I am reposting a response by joshb earlier:
"Check the file <SMVI install dir>/server/etc/smvi.override. See if this file exists and contains the entry 'vim.client.log.verbose=true'. If it does, either add a '#' to the front of the line or replace true with false. This entry will load every SOAP request we make to VC and can increase log file sizes."
Currently, we are restricting the log files to 20MB and will retain them upto 7 days.

In case you want to change the log file location - here are the steps that worked for me :
Once you restart the service you should see content added to the log file in the new location.
