You can use the IMTrace.log file to help determine the reason an error message occurs in an integration in Integration Manager. To create the IMTrace.log file, follow these steps:

  1. Browse to your Integration Manager folder. This folder is typically at the following location:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\Integration Manager 10

  2. Open the Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.IntegrationManager.exe.config file by using Notepad or another text editor.

  3. Locate the three switches near the bottom of the file. Change the value of the first switch and the third switch to 1. For example, the switches section will resemble the following:

    <add name="IMTracingOn" value="1"/>
    <add name="TraceGPScriptInstructions" value="0"/>
    <add name="TraceGPDexInstructions" value="1"/>

After you run the integration again, a more detailed version of the error appears in the IMTraceLog.txt file.
