How does one turn debug logging on DirectManage/DirectControl console?

Although most logging activity focuses on the actions of the Centrify DirectControl Agent, logging for the Centrify DirectManage Access Manager Console can also be toggled and configured with different types of messages to record in the log file.
To configure logging for operations handled through the Centrify DirectManage Access Manager Console:
1) Open the Centrify DirectManage Access Manager Console.
2) In the console tree, select Centrify DirectManage Access Manager, right-click, select Options.
3) Click the Log Settings tab, select the type of messages (typically "log all messages") to log, then click OK.
The log file is located by default in the \Documents and Settings\ [username] \Application Data\Centrify DirectControl (or DirectManage) \Log\ folder and is updated as different operations are performed in the Centrify DirectManage Access Manager Console
4) Remember to turn off logging after the intended events are captured as the log files can grow extremely large in size.
