Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-667) Logging level settings ignored in apachedsw.exe windows NT service frontend (apachedsw.exe)

Alex Karasulu commented on DIRSERVER-667:

Procrun is broken

I don't think this is working at all.  Meaning the stderr and stdout redirection is broken
or something is wrong with logging output to stdout.  The procrun executable has issues. 
If this was working properly then the default logging output would go the stdout log file.
 It's not so we have issues.

Procrun log level != ApacheDS log level

Before I go on let me make a point about the logging facility in the service manager.  This
is the procrun service manager customized for ApacheDS.  It's log level is *NOT* the log level
of ApacheDS.  This log level is for the service manager code for running ApacheDS as a service
on windows.  To adjust the logging properties of ApacheDS you need to edit the
file in the conf directory of your installation. 

Workaround when running in service mode

I do have a temporary workaround for this logging issue after some experimentation.  You can
get nlog4j to append logs to a log file in addition to stdout.  Below I have configured a
rolling log file as well as the stdout appender.  I'd leave the stdout appender to allow apacheds.exe
to pump logs out to the console when run in nonservice mode.  I've attached this
file to this JIRA.

When you put this into your conf directory you're ApacheDS instance will produce a apacheds-rolling.log
and apacheds-rolling.log.1 file.  By default it will generate this file in C:\Windows\system32
so you want to generate it somewhere else preferably in the log directory of your installation.
 To point it to my ${install}\var\log directory I modified the working path on the Startup
and Shutdown tabs to C:\Program Files\apacheds-1.0-RC4-SNAPSHOT on my system.

Hope this works for you.  BTW that file is here:

> apachedsw.exe appears to ignore the requested settings for logging level.
> How to reproduce 
> 1 - run %apacheds_home%\bin\apachedsw.exe
> 2 - In the "Logging" tab from the level combo, select Debug
> 3 - In the log prefix type test_debug.log
> 4 - in the log path set sth such as : C:\tmp\log
> 5 - In the Redirect stdout type C:\tmp\log\apacheds-stdout.log
> 6 - In the Redirect stderr type C:\tmp\log\apacheds-stderr.log
> 7 - Click on "Apply" and restart service.
> Perform some typical LDAP requests
> Have a look at the files in C:\tmp\log\
> All the expected files are there.  None have any debug log entry...
> I can possibly help if told where to look.
