How do I enable logging for the Win32 console in Ghost Solution Suite?


Important: Make a complete backup of the Windows registry prior to making the changes below.

Follow the steps below to enable logging for the Ghost Solution Suite: Open the registry on the computer that you are going to be using to test the console. The log file will be saved to the computer that is running the console . For example, Start > Run, and type "regedit" for the command line. Within Regedit go to the following location:


For Server 2008, 2012, and newer:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Altiris\Altiris eXpress Deployment Console]

You will need to create a new KEY here called Options.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Altiris\Altiris eXpress Deployment Console\Options]

Add the following Values into this folder/key.
"DebugLogging"=dword:00000005 (decimal value)
"DebugLogMaxSize"=dword:10000000 (decimal value)

DebugLogging is the level of logging. "0" turns off logging, "3" will get all the trace statements added, and "5" gives the most specific information (what functions are entered and exited). DebugLogMaxSize is the maximum size of the log file in bytes. DebugLogFilename is the full path and name of the log file. Either set DebugLogging to zero or delete the three values to turn off logging.

Note: You can download the attached .reg file which will create the folder and keys for you. This will not work on Windows Server 2008, 2012, and newer
