Enabling GPMC logging

If you are having problems with the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) you can enable logging for this console by configuring two registry keys as follows:

Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics

Value Name: GPMgmtTraceLevel

Value Type: REG_DWORD

Value Data: 2

 

Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics

Value Name: GPMgmtLogFileOnly

Value Type: REG_DWORD

Value Data: 1

 

The log file that is generated by this will be found in the %temp% directory.
