I have been reviewing the “Microsoft-Windows-Desired State Configuration/Operational” log to see what gets logged for various settings of ConfigurationMode.
When the LCM is configured for “ApplyAndMonitor”, if a configuration value is incorrect, it logs a “Warn” level entry with an Event ID = 4249 that state:
From LCM, message is
Completed processing test operation. The operation returned False.
This is good, but is there a way to have it provide more information regarding what configuration is set incorrectly? If you are using “ApplyAndMonitor” mode the configuration would likely need to be corrected by some other means, so trying to figure out what is not correct could be difficult.
When the LCM is configured for “ApplyAndAutoCorrect”, if a configuration value is incorrect, it doesn’t log anything that states that something was corrected, much less what was corrected. I think it might be useful if it did especially if things were needing to be correct often so you could try and figure out why. Thoughts?
