KB-9627: Can Centrify Audit and Management Databases Be Changed to Full Recovery Mode Instead of Simple?

Auditing and Monitoring Service ,

Both Centrify Audit and Management databases are created with simple recovery mode by default. Will there be any negative effects if they are changed to full recovery mode?

Simple recovery mode doesn't allow a point in time recovery of data so in the case of a database problem, you can lose up to a full day's worth of data. Full recovery mode protects against this.

In the past, DirectAudit databases installed with full recovery mode by default for this reason but it was changed a few versions ago due to the growth of the LDF file . With 
full recovery mode, you'll need to monitor the size of the LDF file. Depending on how much data your environment collects, the transaction logs (LDF file) may consume a lot of disk space. A good practice is to monitor the LDF file periodically to assess the impact of full recovery mode on disk usage.
