ArchiveOne Version 7.2 and Earlier

The procedure described in this section involves editing the Windows machine registry. Using the Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require reinstallation of Windows. Barracuda cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk. It is highly recommended that you create a backup of the registry before making any changes.

Step 1. Run regedit
  1. On the Archive server, type services.msc in the Start Search box, and press Enter. 
  2. In the Services window, right-click ArchiveOne Service, and click Stop.
  3. Run regedit to open the Registry Editor.
  4. Browse to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AOnePolService\Parameters
  5. Double-click the REG_DWORD key Trace, and change the value to 2.
  6. Close the Registry Editor.
  7. Open the Microsoft Services console (services.msc) and restart the ArchiveOne Service.
Step 2. Gather the Log Files

Once you have recreated the issue or reproduced the error, gather the log files using the following steps:

  1. Browse to the folder: \\<configuration_servername>\Add-ins\AOnePol\Logs
  2. Open the folder for the service having the porblem and right-click the latest folder, and click Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder.
  3. On the Archive server, browse to the ArchiveOne installation directory, by default: C:\Program Files (x86)\Barracuda\Archive One
  4. Make a copy of the file AOnePolSnap.log.
  5. Email the zipped log folder and copied AOnePolSnap.log file to your Barracuda Networks Technical Support representative, or upload them to the FTP location provided by your Support representative.
Step 3. Reset the Tracing Level to Standard

Use the following steps to reset the tracing level to Standard:

  1. On the Archive server, run regedit to open the Registry Editor.
  2. Browse to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AOnePolService\Parameters
  3. Double-click the REG_DWORD key Trace, and change the value to 1.
  4. Close the Registry Editor.
  5. Open the Microsoft Services console (services.msc) and restart ArchiveOne Service.

Your support representative will review the log files to determine the root cause of why the ArchiveOne Admin console fails to open, and determine a resolution.
