how to disable tracing / communicator logging for all users automatically?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • By default the logging in communicator is turned on for all users - which causes those with limited roaming profile sizes to exceed their limit.


    Is there a way to automaically disable this logging for all users? Only way I can think of is running a HKCU registry key everytime a user logs on - which we'd rather not do...


    There is a communicator.adm policy called turn on tracing for communicator that claims:

    If this policy is not configured, then the user can specify the choice in communicator options. Otherwise, the corresponding behavior is enforced and the user has no choice.

    However if we set this policy to disable, users are unable to override whatever the value in the checkbox is (checked by default / if they've never used OCS before, and unchecked if they've already changed it to this).

  • Hi Northtec

    Can you update this thread? Have you implemented the RTM version and confirmed this is still an issue.?

  • After upgrading to the RTM version it appears they have fixed the bug and now when 'Disable' is selected even clients that had the tracing option checked are unchecked and greyed out.

    However now that it's in RTM tracing is turned off by default Big Smile
