You can set up the log file directories for the com.smarts.server.logMessages and com.smarts.java.log files when the GUI is running as a Web Console in Internet Explorer. The parameters can be enabled if they are set in the Java Control Panel in the workstations. To display the Java Control Panel, click Settings > Control Panel > Java.

Internet Explorer defaults the console’s com.smarts.writeable parameter to the desktop location where log files are written. You can verify this in the Sun Java Console window (not the Smarts Java Log file).

To verify that the com.smarts.writeable parameter is configured correctly:

From Internet Explorer, click Tools > Sun Java Console.

The Java Console appears. An example of the type of information available from the Sun Java Console is:

Java Plug-in 1.4.2_06

Properties: com.smarts.fixed, com.smarts.sitemod, com.smarts.writeable not found.
Defaulting com.smarts.fixed, com.smarts.sitemod, com.smarts.writeable paths to: C:\Documents and Settings\bm1.SMARTS\Desktop 

The Properties line defines the location of the com.smarts.writable path. In this example, the path has been defaulted to the desktop and the user ID has been defined by default as the user ID for the specific workstation (in the example, the user ID is: bm1.SMARTS).
