The alarm log in Spotlight has too many alarms but how to clean up?
Alarm log is too large
1. Locate the log by searching the client machine (Start => Search for Files and folder and look for alarm.log).
You can determine the location also by going to Spotlight:
View | Options | Spotlight Console and click on connection information location to copy the location.
C:\Program Files\Quest Software\Quest Central\Spotlight\Console\Templates\<connection_name> or
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Quest Software\Shared\Profiles\<connection_name>
2. Once you locate the alarm.log you can either rename it and Spotlight upon start up creates a new one or truncate the current alarm log.
