Sometimes when troubleshooting problems with the CLM or FIM CM smartcard client or online update client, you will need to turn on tracing for these components. This is done with the following registry keys.

More Information


"C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe"=dword:00000001
"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\\2010\\CM Client\\Bin\\clmProfileUpdate.exe"=dword:00000001

"c:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe"="c:\\cmTraces"
"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\\2010\\CM Client\\Bin\\clmProfileUpdate.exe"="c:\\cmTraces"

Note that you need to give the Everyone group Full Control to the folder where the log file is created, in this example c:\cmTraces.
The dword value under the TraceError key can be 0 for no tracing or 1 for tracing enabled.
The above example is for FIM CM, if you are using CLM you will need to provide the correct path for the clmProfileUpdate.exe.
The log file is created in the format YYYYMMDD.log
