DSTrace is used to trace Identity Manager communications. In a BCC, it is generally best to trace both sides of the communication channel (both drivers).
For information about setting trace levels for driver sets, see
Adding Trace Levels in iManager.
The trace messages are written to the ndstrace.log file located in the directory where eDirectory is installed. By default, it is /var/nds. You might want to delete this file before starting a trace so the events logged in the file are specific to the actions you are tracing.
To trace the communications for the BCC-specific Identity Manager drivers on a Linux BCC:
Modify two attributes on both DriverSet objects:
Start your Internet browser and enter the URL for iManager.
The URL is http://server_ip_address/nps/iManager.html. Replace server_ip_address with the IP address or DNS name of the server that has iManager and the Identity Manager preconfigured templates for iManager installed.
Specify your username and password, specify the tree where you want to log in, then click.
Click thebutton at the top of the iManager page.
In tree view, browse to and right-click the desired DriverSet object, then select.
Click thetab, and in the list of valued attributes, click then click .
Ensure that the Trace Level is set to 4, then click.
At the Linux terminal console, log in as the root user, then start the DSTrace utility by entering
Configure DSTrace by entering
ndstrace inline -all +dvrs +dxml +time
Exit the DSTrace utility by entering
Enable DSTrace by again entering ndstrace on at the Linux terminal console.
Run the desired actions for the information you want traced.
Disable DSTrace by entering ndstrace off at the Linux terminal console.
