Start cloudconnector in debug mode

Issue Description

How to trouble-shoot if functionality of the cloud connector needs to be verified. There is also a second way to do this by changing a registry key setting if you need the connector to stay in debug mode after a reboot.

Solution 1

1. Make sure the service is not running (check for CloudConnectorService.exe in the taskmanager, and end process if it's still running)

2. Open the windows command prompt (cmd - make sure you have administrator privileges)

3.  If you have installed your cloud connector with default settings, type in:

 "C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP AG\SAP FSM cloud connector\CloudConnectorService.exe" /cmd /debug

    and press return.

4. The cloud connector will now start in debug mode and give you additional helpful information. If everything is ok, it should look like this:


 5. You can find the logfiles at %programdata%\SAP\FSM Connector\debug.

To start from scratch stop the connector, delete the debug directory, then restart the connector.


The debug mode is meant as a help while troubleshooting. Use it only if you have problems during the installation & configuration. Please be sure to always close the window after successful configuration, otherwise you will not be able to run the connector in normal mode!

Solution 2

Registry key to be changed if you need persistent debug mode (does not survive connector updates)

Path: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SapFsmCloudConnector

Name: ImagePath

Value to set for debug:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP AG\SAP FSM cloud connector\CloudConnectorService.exe" /debug
