Troubleshooting MA operation

The SSH MA outputs a detailed log file that contains information on any errors encountered. The log file path is specified on the connectivity page when configuring the MA.
Error messages are clearly identified along with information that can be used for troubleshooting purposes. If any errors occur while processing an object operation, these will be returned to FIM and can be examined in the Synchronization Service client. If an error occurs during a non-object operation, the error will only be found in the log file.

Turning on debug logging

Extra information can be obtained from the log file by turning on debug logging. This is not recommended for production use, as a large amount of information may be logged. This can be achieved by creating the following registry key
Create a new value of type DWORD and assign it the value 16 (decimal).
