Enable Additional Tracing and Logging (DEVENV)

By default, whenever an exception is thrown, a brief message displays in the ControlPoint user interface.  

DEVENV false

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, make additional logging and tracing available by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Advanced Logging and Tracking from false to true.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

Config Setting DEVENV

This additional logging and tracing and is used to assist Quest Support with troubleshooting and problem-solving.  


Cross-Farm SSP Configuration

The following settings allow ControlPoint to access activity data when a cross-farm Service Application  is created on a farm other than the one on which ControlPoint is installed.

NOTE:  These are Advanced Settings.

Look for Site Collection Admin Users in Active Directory Groups (SiteAdminAD)

By default, if an Active Directory Group is a Site Collection Administrator, ControlPoint does not look inside the group to determine if a logged in user is a member of that group in order to calculate permissions.

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, have ControlPoint look for Site Collection Administrators within Active Directory groups by changing the ControlPoint Setting Look for Site Collection Admin Users in Active Directory Groups (SiteAdminAD) from false to true.

Config Setting SiteAdminAD

NOTE:  Be aware that if ControlPoint is required to look for users within Active Directory groups, processing time may increase.

Created (Hidden) Settings

"Created" settings are special-purpose settings that you can add to the ControlPoint Settings list if needed.  Generally, these settings should only be configured under special circumstances and with guidance from Quest Support.

NOTE:  When a setting is created, it is added to the category Special Purpose.

To create a ControlPoint Setting:

1From the ControlPoint Configuration Settings Manager, click [Create].

2Check the box to the left of each setting you want to create.

Config Settings CREATE SETTING

3Click [Insert].

To delete a Created setting:

NOTE:  You can only delete settings that are classified as "Created."  (That is, Basic and Advanced settings cannot be deleted.)

1In the ControlPoint Settings list, check the box to the left of each created setting you want to delete.

2Click [Delete].

When you delete a Created setting, it is removed from the current ControlPoint Settings list and once again becomes available from the Add Created Settings list.
