Step 2. Edit logging policy
Give the policy an appropriate name and description and click OK
Select the new logging policy and set which items you would like logging by clicking on the 'question mark' and change to a tick either on the database or eventvwr
Save the changes made to the policy
Step 3. Create and assign a new policy group
Create a new policy group - Go to 'Policies' | Right click 'Policy Groups' | 'New' | 'New Policy Group'
Give the policy group an appropriate name
Apply the new logging policy to the new policy group.
- Save the changes
Step 4. Create a new client configuration file
Step 5. Install the client configuration package
- Install the client configuration package to the sgn server (no need to install the SGNClient.msi)
- The server will require a reboot
- Once the server has rebooted entries will be logged according to what has been set in the logging policy
