This documentation is for legacy Kiwi Syslog Server versions 9.8.2 and older.
Use this Kiwi Syslog Server registry setting to specify the replacement character for invalid characters in dates that are not valid in file names.
The archiving process uses the current system date and time to create dated files or dated folders for the archived log files. Because the date format is user selectable, it may contain characters that are not valid in file names. The archiving process will create a valid file or folder name by replacing invalid values such as "&*+=:;,/\|?<>" with a valid character such as "-".
For example, if the system date and time is 2004/12/25 12:45:00, the archiving process will convert the name to 2004-12-25 12-45-00. This string will be used as a folder or file name for archiving purposes. Instead of using the "-" character, an different character can be chosen. Be aware that if any illegal character is used, it may cause the archiving process to create incorrect files or folders.
