Issue/Introduction

We're running Policy Server 12.8 and we don't see cds.log file created

when Policy Server processes Federation Journey. How can we have the

cds.log generated with debug logs ?


Environment

Release : 12.8

Component : SITEMINDER FEDERATION SECURITY SERVICES

Resolution

You need to use another configuration file to get the cds.log in

transaction journey.

In /{policy_server_home}/config/properties :

  Make a backup of the cdslog4j.properties

  # cp -p cdslog4j.properties cdslog4j.properties.orig

  Copy the .new config file over the existing one :

  # cp -p cdslog4j.properties.new cdslog4j.properties

  Edit cdslog4j.properties file and change the following :

    logger.CertificateDataStore.level = info

    for

    logger.CertificateDataStore.level = debug

This should create a cds.log file in the log repository as soon as you

run Federation transaction. In case the Policy Server doesn't produce

the cds.log, please share with us the other files.
