This topic describes how to log Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection attempts in the Windows Event Viewer, by setting a registry key. You can select to view errors, warnings, informational and success events, or any combination of these event types.

To log SSL events

  1. Click Start, and type Regedit to open Registry Editor.

  2. Locate the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL

  3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and add the following registry value:

    Value Name: EventLogging

    DataType: REG_DWORD

  4. Provide a value for the property, as follows:

    • Type 0x0000 to specify that SSL events should not be logged.

    • Type 0x0002 to specify that all log warnings should be logged.

    • Type 0x0001 to specify that error messages only should be logged.

    • Type 0x0004 to specify that log informational and success events only should be logged.

  5. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the Forefront UAG server for logging to take effect.

Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
