Welcome to the forums!
I think that jboss.log at the root level is created by the stdout redirection that you might be doing while starting the server as a service. Do you use the service.bat to set it up as a service and then start it as a service?
Yes, in /etc/init.d/jboss I can see this:
Must have installed it myself but this stuff is ancient (2009) so I never thought of looking there. Any idea how people normally manage the console output? Because it currently fills up the disk every so many weeks.
Redirect to /dev/null?
Ha funny but you are right, console logging is not recommended for production (so I just read) so I removed the whole thing from the xml file, see https://community.jboss.org/wiki/JBossASTuningSlimming for details. Thanks for your help, I will mark this question as answered.
