java.util.logging.config.file defines file used
by LogManager to configure root logger

FileHandlers for non-root logger must be specified using Java.

FileHandler fh = null;
try {
fh = new FileHandler("dave." + System.getenv("serverName")+ "%g.log",
500000,
10
);
} catch (SecurityException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}

lgr2.addHandler(fh);
