Is it possible to "glue" several log files together? I made the mistake of not resetting the retention interval for our activity log during upgrades to more than 30 days. I have the previous log files, but would like to consolidate them into a single log file that can utilize the built in query tool.

Unfortunately it is impossible to stitch together two log databases.


Hi Eugene, have read the thread and would like to know if you can set the retention time of the log by a script. I restore the previous log every time after upgrade via a script and would like to put this setting into it as well. Best Regards. Leif


Hello Leif,

Sure, here it is:


$retentionDays = 30 # TODO: modify me

$admNS = New-Object("Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi.AdmNamespace")
$admService = $admNS.GetServiceDirectly("localhost")

# Bind to the Service Log
$path = $admService.Backend.GetConfigurationContainerPath("ServiceLog")
$serviceLog = $admService.OpenObject($path.ToString(), $NULL, $NULL, 0)

# Set the retention time
$serviceLog.LogHoldTime = $retentionDays

I restore the previous log every time after upgrade via a script and would like to put this setting into it as well.

In the latest build of Adaxes the Log Database is included in the Backup/Restore, which means that you no longer need to restore the previous log every time you upgrade.
