Puppet Enterprise 2017.3

The puppetd log and the windows log can be helpful when troubleshooting issues with Windows.

Messages from the puppetd log file are available in the Windows Event Viewer (Windows Logs > Application). To enable debugging, stop the Puppet service and restart it:

c:\>sc stop puppet && sc start puppet --debug --trace

The Puppet Windows service component writes to the windows.log within the same log directory. This log can be used to debug issues with the service.

Tip: To simplify debugging, consider using Process Explorer.
