To change the log path on the audited SQL Server, perform the following:

  1. Navigate to the SQL Server Auditing installation directory (by default C:\Program Files (x86)\Netwrix Auditor\SQL Server Auditing).
  2. Open the “pathstotracelogs.txt” file for editing.
  3. Populate this file with UNC paths where you want the trace logs to be stored on your SQL Servers.

Syntax: SQLServer\Instance|UNC path

For example:
server\instance|C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\LOG\

Note:
Replace ‘SQLServer’ with the SQL server machine name.
Replace ‘Instance’ with the SQL server instance name.
