The Server trace file location (on the SQL Server host) needs the full path:
- To the folder to store the trace file, not a path to a file.
- The location of the folder is your choice but has to be a local folder on the monitored SQL Server host
- The folder has to be existing
- The field has to be specified as a valid local path on the monitored server (not from the DS machine)
So it will look like “C:\folder\SpotlightTrace” etc. not like “\\<host>\folder\SpotlightTrace\TraceFile.trc”
