How to redirect RTC scm command line logs to a different directory?

Currently, when RTC scm commands are run. Taking an example of the following simple queries:
scm --non-interactive login -r https://clm501:9443/ccm -u clmadmin -P clmadmin -n clm_501
scm --non-interactive list connections
1) logs 'scm0.log' to 'scmN.log' is created in <userLocal>\jazz-scm\logs

2) logs '<timestamp>.log' are created in <RTCEclipseClientInstall>\scmtools\eclipse\configuration :


Now, logs mentioned in 1) can be redirected using --config. aka ; scm --config <path>
How to redirect the timestamp logs in 2) i.e., in <RTCeclipseInstall>\scmtools\eclipse\configuration to a different location?

The requirement is to avoid logs being generated in the install path.

Thanks in advance,

You need to add the following lines to the scm.ini file -Dosgi.configuration.area=&lt;configuration directory location&gt;

Note: This would change the location of all the files under the configuration directory and not only the log file.
Not sure if there is a way to just change the location of the log file.
