SQL MP Debug Logging – On/Off with a Simple Agent Task


SQL Debugging MP
Version: 1.0.0.12



Sometimes you need to activate SQL Management Pack debugging. The SCOM product group makes it relatively easy; by creating a registry key to instantly begin writing debug information to the Operations Manager event log.

'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\SQL Management Packs\EnableEvtLogDebugOutput\SQL Server MP'


To make things even easier, here are two tasks:

  • SQL EnableEvtLogDebugOutput: Enable
  • SQL EnableEvtLogDebugOutput: Disable

Enable:

Disable



Logging should begin instantly upon completion of the Enable task.
