How to: DirectAccess Client tracing


Applies to:

Windows 8.1

Windows 8.0

Windows 7

When you are troubleshooting DirectAccess issues on a Windows client, we often like to gather diagnostic data from the DirectAccess client during a failed connection attempt.

 

Start, CMD (Run As Admin),

C:\

MD C:\logfile

Netsh.exe trace start scenario=directaccess capture=yes report=yes tracefile=C:\logfile\datrace_%ComputerName%.etl

Netsh.exe wfp capture start file=c:\logfile\wfpdiag_%ComputerName%.cab

 

At this point, disable and re-enable the internet network connection and then try to connect to an internal share. Afterwards, run the following commands:

 

Netsh.exe wfp capture stop

Netsh.exe trace stop

 

In c:\logfile zip up the datrace.etl, datrace.cab and wfpdiag.cab.
