Using Log Viewer

To start Log Viewer, click Start Log Viewer in the Configuration Center main window.

Once you have started Log Viewer, open your Active Roles diagnostic log file or saved event log file: Click Open on the Log Viewer toolbar, and supply the path and name of the log file.

By default, Log Viewer displays a list of errors encountered by the Administration Service and recorded in the log file. You can use Log Viewer to look for information on how to troubleshoot a given error: Right-click the error in the list and then click Look for solution in Knowledge Base. Log Viewer performs a search in One Identity Software Knowledge Base to list the Knowledge Articles that apply to the error you selected.

Other tasks you can perform:

  • To view a list of requests processed by the Administration Service and traced in the log file, click Requests in the View area on the Log Viewer toolbar.
  • To view all trace records found in the diagnostic log file or all events found in the event log file, click Raw log records in the View area on the Log Viewer toolbar.
  • To search the list for a particular text string, such as an error message, type the text string in the Search box on the Log Viewer toolbar and press Enter.
  • To narrow the set of list items to those you are interested in, click Filter on the Log Viewer toolbar and specify the desired filter conditions.
  • To view detailed information about an error, request, trace record or event, right-click the corresponding list item, and click Details.
  • To view all trace records that apply to a given request, right-click the corresponding item in the Requests list and click Stack trace. This task is unavailable in case of an event log file.
  • To view the request that caused a given error, right-click the error in the Errors list and click Related request. This task is unavailable in case of an event log file.

To view all trace records that apply to the request that caused a given error, right-click the error in the Errors list and click Stack trace for related request. This task is unavailable in case of an event log file.


SQL Server Replication

SQL Server Replication

SQL Server database replication feature enables copying and distribution of data between different nodes, which provide the functionality for maintaining replicated data.

Active Roles uses the replication functionality of Microsoft SQL Server to copy and distribute configuration data from one Administration Service database to another, and to synchronize data among the databases for consistency.

To understand the replication terminologies, the type of SQL Server Replication model that Active Roles uses, and the steps required to configure replication see the following topics:

NOTE: SQL Server Books Online should be the primary resource you use for SQL Server replication questions. All contents relevant to Microsoft SQL Server replication is indexed under the “SQL Server Replication” topic in SQL Server Books Online at


Replication terminology

This section explains the basic terms and concepts used in replication.


To replicate its configuration data, Active Roles employs the replication capabilities of Microsoft SQL Server. In SQL Server, the term replication refers to a process that copies and distributes data and database objects from one database to another and then synchronizes information between databases for consistency.


The Publisher is a database server that makes data available for replication to other database servers. The Publisher can have one or more publications, each representing a logically related set of data. In the Active Roles replication model, the Publisher has only one publication.
