Logged Errors Report

The Logged Errors Report:

·reports ControlPoint application errors for a specified time period, and

·is available from the ControlPoint Actions and Analyses panel.

To generate a Logged Errors Report:

1From the Manage ControlPoint panel, choose Schedule Management and Logging > Logged Errors Report.

2Enter the Start Date and End Date for the time period you want to cover.

Now you can:

·run the analysis immediately (by clicking [Run Now] )


·schedule the analysis to run at a later time


·generate an xml file with instructions that can be run at a later time (by clicking [Save Instructions]). See Saving, Modifying and Running Instructions for a ControlPoint Operation.

The errors returned by this report are similar to those recorded in the Administration log, which is available to ControlPoint Application Administrators.  It does not, however, trace activities like the progress of both nightly and interactive Full Discovery tasks, as the Administration log does.

Troubleshooting Configuration Errors




















Configuration errors generally display in the right (workspace) pane, when you first open the ControlPoint application or when you attempt to run a ControlPoint operation.


Blank Page/Unexpected Error

Possible Reason

If you attempt to open ControlPoint and a blank page displays (with or without a message such as Error or An unexpected error has occurred) it may because your farm uses multiple Web front-end servers and you failed to properly configure ControlPoint for all of them.  


Follow all of the instructions for Configuring ControlPoint for Additional Front-End Servers.


Could Not Load File or Assembly

Parser Error Message

Could not load file or assembly "System Web Extensions.  Version - ...

Assembly error


If you see this error as soon as you open ControlPoint, the applicable version of the .NET Framework has not been installed on all of the Web front-end servers in your farm.


Make sure the version of the .NET Framework that is appropriate for your SharePoint version is installed on all Web front-end servers in your farm.  It is typically installed on the first server as part of the ControlPoint installation.  You can install it on additional servers (as well as on the first server if this step was skipped during the ControlPoint installation process) by following the procedure for Configuring ControlPoint for Additional Web Front-End Servers.
