The application error log file HyperVSuiteErrorLog.Log is gradually increasing in size. Can I delete it?
Yes, you may delete this error log file. Vyapin Virtualization Management Suite generates an error log file in the common application data path. The error log file tends to increase in size over a period of time especially if the application meets with frequent error conditions. The application does an “append” to the error log each time it runs. This is required for diagnostic purposes during trouble shooting. You may delete the error log file periodically.
