The Directory Server Plug-in logs information through the Directory Server connector to the central log and through the Directory Server logging facility. Consequently, local Directory Server Plug-in log messages will also be saved in the Directory Server error log.
Directory Server saves information into the error log from other Directory Server Plug-ins and components. To identify messages from the Identity Synchronization for Windows Directory Server Plug-in, you can filter out lines containing the isw string.
By default, only minimal Plug-in log messages are displayed in the error log. For example:
[14/Jun/2004:17:08:36 -0500] - ERROR<38747> - isw - conn=-1 op=-1 msgId=-1 - Plug-ins unable to establish connection to DS Connector at attila:1388, will retry later
You can change the default verbosity level of the Directory Server error log through DSCC as follows:
Log in to Directory Service Control Center.
On the Directory Servers tab page, click the server whose log level you want to configure.
Select the Server Configuration tab, then the Error Logging tab.
In the General -> Additional Items to Log section, select Plug-Ins.
You can enable plug-in logging using the command line.
$ dsconf set-log-prop errors level:err-plugins
