Technote (FAQ)


Where can I find the BES Admin logs?


BES Admin (the user creation and administration tool) writes a log file "BESAdminDebugLog.txt" to the "BESAdmin" subfolder of the BES Server folder (default location: "\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\BigFix\")

This log file contains information about installer issues, upgrades, user creation, database maintenance, and other tasks performed by the BES Admin tool.
