Will the service log the same information as running tfsdeployer -d

Jan 12, 2012 at 8:15 PM

I have been running TFSdeployer in "Debug mode" as a console application using tfsdeployer -d.  When I convert to running as a service, will it log the same information, and if so, where?

 

Thanks, Eric

Hi Eric,

When running TFS Deployer interactively at the console it logs to the console. When running TFS Deployer as a service, it logs to the Application Event Log.

The <system.diagnostics><switches> section of the TfsDeployer.exe.config file determine the verbosity of the logging for both and you can optionally add your own Trace Listeners under the nearby <trace> section using the standard .NET approach:
