how do i change the log directory for log files like ccm.log ccm-etl.log and co

 The customer keeps all WebSphere (and app) logs in a specific place (not in the standard WAS installation directory anywhere).

How I change the directory to which the CLM apps (and data warehouse) send their logs.
So for example instead of /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profile/nodes/logs/ccm.log send it to "/webspherelogdirectory/ccm.log"

HI Lewis

This can be changed in the log4j.properties file uner JAZZ_HOME\server\conf\ccm\
JAZZ_HOME would be defined on the WAS profile,
Application servers > Server1 > Process definition > Java Virtual Machine > Custom properties

For ccm, the variables are mentioned in the below link, Steps 4, 5 and 6.

The links is to configure tomcat as a windows service, however it has information on how to change the location of the logs.
