Microsoft Dynamics GP Diagnostics!!
What is a diagnostic?
A diagnostic is a data collector that searches your system for specific information and collects that information to upload to a secure location. The information is then attached to the technical support incident you just opened for review by the Technical Support Engineer.
What information does the diagnostic collect?
The diagnostics available today assist in troubleshooting all areas of Microsoft Dynamics GP as well as focus on specific areas such as Business Portal, Web Services and Microsoft Dynamics GP Upgrades. In general, each diagnostic gathers the following information:
1. Version information of Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft SQL Server and Operating Systems
2. Troubleshooting logs such as the Dexsql.log, install logs and event viewer logs
3. Specific results from the Microsoft Dynamics GP databases.
