More > SQL Server Agent Problem SQL Server Agent has its own log file that captures certain events from this service. By default the file is located in the LOG folder where SQL Server is installed. In https://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/3093/how-to-change-the-sql-server-agent-log-file-path/ this tip I will explain how to change the path of your SQL Server Agent log file "SQLAGENT.OUT" from an existing location to a new location. Solution We had a requirement to move the SQL Server Agent log file SQLAGENT.OUT from the current drive to a different drive. It was a part of our best practices in which we are streamlining our entire SQL Server environment. We made these changes by using two undocumented stored procedures. sql server SP_GET_SQLAGENT_PROPERTIES SP_SET_SQLAGENT_PROPERTIES The first stored procedure is used to retrieve the SQL Server Agent properties and the second stored procedure is used to set/change the properties for the SQL Agent service. I strongly suggest testing any undocumented stored procedures in a lab environment first, before changing your production servers. Steps to move the SQL Agent log file Step 1 First check the existing location of the SQL Server Agent log file. Run the below undocumented stored procedure sql server error to get the current location. This stored procedure will let us know the SQL Agent properties of a particular server. This stored procedure can be found in the msdb database. USE MASTER GO EXEC msdb..sp_get_sqlagent_properties GO We can see below the different settings that are returned when we run this command. We are interested in the errorlog_file column for the change we need to make. Here we can see the current location is the C drive. Step 2 Now we will change the location of the file from the C drive to the G drive. First we need to create the new destination folders where we want to put the SQLAGENT.OUT file. So, I created the folder "Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\LOG" on the G drive. If you do not create these folders you will have issues when the SQL Server Agent service restarts. After the new folder has been created, run the below stored procedure to change the location. USE MASTER GO EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_set_sqlagent_properties @errorlog_file=N'G:\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\LOG\SQLAGENT.OUT' GO Step 3 Now we will verify whether the SQL Server Agent log file path has changed or not. We will be run the same command as in step 1 to get the SQL Server agent properties. We can see in the below screenshot that the path for the SQL Server Agent log file has been changed to the G drive. Note, thi
