Changing VirtualCenter log locations

LoDuring the initial setup of vCenter, you might have chosen LOG file location to default, which in turn may fill your OS Drive and cause the bottleneck to vCenter OS performance in future..
It's advised to change the vCenter LOG file location to different (not OS partition) & let the OS breathe..

By default (Windows 2003) log files are stored in “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Logs”, and for Windows 2008 log files are stored in “C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Logs”.

This article provides steps to change the location in which VirtualCenter logs are kept.
