we are reworking the architecture of a couple of our database servers and are having difficulty changing the location of the vdi.log file. any insights would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Robert,

    I always just assumed that the vdi.log was written to the same location as SQL Server's other error logs. In SQL Server 2000, you can see this in the server's startup parameters. -e should allow you to specify the location for the server to write its' error logs.

    I hope this also works for the vdi.log.
