The article details the process to gather troubleshooter logs from GFI EndPointSecurity Server.
Use these instructions when requested by a GFI Technical Support Representative. If you do not have an open case, first submit a request at www.gfi.com/supportform.
Perform the following steps to help us gather the required information and isolate the issue:
Stop the GFI EndPointSecurity service
- Enable debug:
Go to the installation folder of GFI EndPointSecurity and open the crmiini.xml file with Notepad.
- Change the Debug value from 0 to 1, and save the file.
- Delete all files from the <GFI\EndPointSecurity 6>\DebugLogs directory.
- Restart the GFI EndPointSecurity service.
- Recreate the issue being encountered. You can use the problem step recorder for it.
- Make deployment of two agents and wait until you see the Up-to-date status change to Update Pending.
- Go to the Status > Agents and right-click on the agents and choose Debug > Collect debug logs... from each of them.
- Go to Start > Programs > GFI EndPointSecurity 2013 and run the GFI EndPointSecurity Troubleshooter.
