Hi all! This is Vladimir from the App-V team and today I want to show you how to collect App-V 5.0 server ETL traces. These ETL traces can be helpful in certain troubleshooting scenarios and the steps below show you how to collect them from the App-V 5.0 Management, Publishing and Reporting servers.
1. First we need to register what kind of ETL traces we want to collect. There are 7 different ETL streams available and to collect them all in the same trace we can type the following at an elevated command prompt on the App-V 5.0 Management/Publishing/Reporting server:
Logman create trace APPV5 -p Microsoft-AppV-PolicyLibrary -o appv.etl
Logman update trace APPV5 -p Microsoft-AppV-Server-Management
Logman update trace APPV5 -p Microsoft-AppV-Server-Management-Private
Logman update trace APPV5 -p Microsoft-AppV-Server-Publishing
Logman update trace APPV5 -p Microsoft-AppV-Server-Publishing-Private
Logman update trace APPV5 -p Microsoft-AppV-Server-Reporting
Logman update trace APPV5 -p Microsoft-AppV-Server-Reporting-Private
2. We then need to start the trace by running the following command:
Logman start APPV5
3. Now reproduce the issue.
4. Once the issue is reproduced, we need to stop the trace using this command:
Logman stop APPV5
5. Next we need to find out where the ETL file was created by using this command:
Logman query APPV5| find /I "ETL"
6. Finally, we can convert the ETL file into a TXT file using the following:
Netsh trace convert APPV_<RANDOM>.ETL
An example of this is below:
Note that you can also view more detailed App-V 5.0 server event logs by checking “Show Analytic and Debug Log” in the Event Viewer:
I hope that you found this information useful. See you soon!
