Issue/Introduction



We're running a Policy Server and when we set RSATRACEDEST environment
variable in order to make the Policy Server RSA Client to write in a
log file, we'd like to know how to rotate this log file ?

Environment

Release: MSPSSO99000-12.8-Single Sign-On-for Business Users-MSP
Component:

Resolution

At first glance, Policy Server doesn't have that feature, and as such, 
we'd like you to open an Idea on the Security page : 

  1. Go to the CA Security Overview Page : 
     https://communities.ca.com/community/ca-security/ca-single-sign-on 
  2. Click on the "Actions" drop-down menu and select "Create an 
     idea." 
  3. Give your idea a title and detailed description to encourage 
     voting. 
  4. Publish and vote on your idea! 

Looking further on the internet, it seems that log rotation by RSA is
available on the Authentication Server only.
