Over the course of the next few posts we’re going to start modifying all sorts of things in the configuration. Depending upon the particulars of your environment this might or might not pan out. :) As such, we should probably take a quick look at the logging available before we break anything too badly.When you run ADAMSync there’s a switch to give you enhanced logging: /log [log file] -- Log messages, use "-" option to log to screenI’m typically a fan of using a filename rather than – as the logs tend to get quite large.From our run yesterday, here’s some of the output of the log (snipped for brevity):
