Carbon Copy Solution 6.2 comes with a new debugging tool called ATrace, which can be run manually via its "C:\Program Files\Altiris\Carbon Copy\ATraceCfg.exe" file.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to enable its debugging features remotely to multiple computers at the same time? If you answered YES, then please read on.

ATrace can be controlled by modifying its DWORD called Level which can be found in the following registry location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\eXpress\ATrace\CC

This means that you can quite easily create a registry file which can then be deployed via DS, SWD or any other method that you like to use.

  1. Create a registry file containing the following:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\eXpress\ATrace\CC]
    
    
  2. Choose which Level you wish to use, and then add the appropriate line in order to complete the registry file:

    Information plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:ffe4ffff

    Warnings plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:ffe7ffff

    Errors plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:ffedffff

    Trace plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:ffe4ffff

    Verbose plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:fff5ffff

    Information and Warnings plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:ffe6ffff

    Information, Warnings and Errors plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:ffeeffff

    Information, Warnings, Errors and Trace plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:ffefffff

    Information, Warnings, Errors and Verbose plus all options:
    "Level"=dword:fffeffff

    All trace levels with all options:
    "Level"=dword:ffffffff
