TSM: Enabling logging of TSM server service on Windows


Is there any logging to check what the server is doing when starting the server as a service?


When starting the Tivoli Storage Manager server in the foreground using dsmserv command, there are logging information in the command windows to see what actions the server is taking. However, if the server is started using the Windows service, there is no logging information. This is especially helpful when debuging problems in regard to the service failing to start.
