Question
I added the LogEnable and LogFile settings to the options section of the dmconfig.txt file. The dmconifg.txt configuration file syntax gives an example of LogEnable=True. This doesn't seem to work. No log has been created yet. Is logging supported with the AD Connection Monitor?

Answer
The correct entries in the dmconfig.txt file are:

  • LogEnable=2 or 3, log to the console and/or file
    LogFile=<file name>
  • LogEnable=2 allows logging to occur to the screen IF you start the SEActiveDirMon.exe in a CMD Window.
  • LogEnable = 3 allows logging to occur to the screen IF you start the SEActiveDirMon.exe in a CMD Window AND writes to the file specified in the LogFile= setting.

Log information can also be seen by opening the Security Expressions Server, selecting Confugure Servers - Audit On-Connect tab and select AOC Tracing.

Note that when these entries are made in the dmconfig.txt file, the Altiris SecurityExpressions Active Directory Connection Monitor service must be restarted before they take effect.
