Troubleshooting

You can configure Specops Password Auditor to log internal activity to a verbose debug log. The debug log allows you to follow the events leading up to the error. Debug logging is enabled by changing the relevant registry key from “0” to “1.” Additional logging will be returned by using the higher debug levels “2” or “3.

HKLM\Software\SpecopsSoft\Specops Password Policy\SPA\Logging\Debug

Default value = 0 (set to 1 to enable logging)
The default log path is: C:\Temp\SpecopsLogFiles\

Do not leave the debug logging turned on unless you need it. Verbose logging over an extended amount of time can create large log files which have the potential of filling your system disk partition.
