Applies to:

Centrify Direct Manage Access Manager 5.1

Question: 

How to collect debug logs when the Centrify Direct Manage Access Manager Console is not being used to make changes to zone. (i.e. SDK Tools being used)

Answer:

A change to the registry will be needed to setup logging.

1.  Using regedit go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Centrify

2. If it does not exist create a new key called "CIMS"

3. Within the CMS key create 

 a. New STRING with the name "LogPath" and the value of where you want the Log file to be written (i.e. C:\logs) *NOTE: Make sure this folder exists!

 b. New DWORD with the name "Tracelevel" and the value of "4" for verbose logging.

4. To remove the logging you can delete the CIMS key.
