Logging and Tracing Settings

The Administrative Template settings for Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM) enable you to centrally configure logging and tracing options for AGPM Servers and clients to which a Group Policy object (GPO) with these settings is applied.

The following setting is available under Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\AGPM in the Group Policy Object Editor when editing a GPO in the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). If this path is not visible, right-click Administrative Templates, and add the agpm.admx or agpm.adm template.

Trace file locations:

  • Client: %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\AGPM\agpm.log

  • Server: %CommonAppData%\Microsoft\AGPM\agpmserv.log
