Setting directory service log levels

Active Directory® records events in the directory service log in Event Viewer. In Active Administrator®, you can run the Set directory service log levels job to set the log level in Active Directory. By default, Active Directory only records critical and error events (log level 0). As you increase the setting, more events are recorded for the event type, with log level 5 recording all events. If you select No Change, the current setting in Active Directory remains.

1
Select Active Directory Health | Troubleshooter.
2
Open the Jobs tab.
3
Double-click Set directory service log levels.
5
Click Next.

No Change

No change is made to the setting in Active Directory. If another application was used to set the logging level, that setting is unchanged.

0 (None)

Includes critical events and error events only (default setting in Active Directory).
