How to Use the Trace Utility in Host Initiated SSO

The primary method of troubleshooting is tracing.


Use the Trace command line utility to enable tracing in SSO.

For the trace command to function, the file tracelog.exe must be in the following directory:

<drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On

You can download this file from the following location:

To use the trace utility

  1. On the Start menu, click Run.

  2. In the Run dialog box, type cmd, and then click OK.

  3. At the command line, go to the Enterprise Single Sign-On installation directory. The default is <drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On.

  4. Type Trace –start –high to set the tracing level to high and begin the trace.

  5. Run the scenario with host initiated SSO.

  6. Type Trace –stop to end the trace. A .bin file is generated in the directory above, which you can send to Microsoft for analysis.
