Re: Transaction Logging on AS400



fixed

I had this running at one point. I just set it up with the defaults and I 
was OK. As long as you have enough drives in your ASP you should probably 
be ok too.

As far as running it to a separate controller/drive, I believe the only 
way to accomplish that is to create a new ASP.

I found this at the midrange archive that helps with some of the steps 
needed to create a User ASP to be associated with an IFS directory. You 
would then point your trans log to that directory.
