Summary

When you troubleshoot issues in advanced clients or management points, you can turn on the DebugLogging key on the computer where the issue occurs. As a result, the actions of Ccmexec are logged. A log of these actions can help to troubleshoot the issue. DebugLogging works the same on the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 advanced clients and management points because they use the same Ccmexec framework and process name.
