View Agent Direct-Connection Plug-In writes log entries to the standard View Agent log. TRACE and DEBUG information is not included in the log by default.


  1. Open a command prompt and run C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Agent\DCT\support.bat loglevels
  2. Enter 3 for full logging.

    The debug log files are located in %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\VMware\VDM\logs. The file debug*.log has information logged from the View Agent and the plug-in. Search for wsnm_xmlapi to find the plug-in log lines.

    When the View Agent is started, the plug-in version is logged:
