Which users are effectively included / excluded from archiving?

In order to view the list of users that GFI Archiver is archiving for, please follow the steps below:
  1. Open the installation folder of GFI Archiver
  2. Locate the file Enable Debug Logs.bat and run it. This will enable the debug mode. Wait until the script completes.
  3. Once debug mode is enabled, open the folder: ..\InstallationFolder\Core\DebugLogs
  4. Open the file usercntmaad.txt in Notepad
  5. Scroll to the end of this file and you will see a couple of lines similar to the example below:

    YYYY-MM-DD,12:21:01,288,3,"#00000cbc","#00000fac","info ","usercntmaad","Users counted: 3"
    YYYY-MM-DD,12:21:01,288,3,"#00000cbc","#00000fac","info ","usercntmaad","Reporting 2 users."

    In this example GFI Archiver reports a license count of 2 (here we also see that GFI Archiver deducted 1 from its total license count)
  6. Just before the logging mentioned in Step 6 above, you will see a list of the users that GFI Archiver is counting towards the licensing. The fields which are relevant are highlighted below:
     
    YYYY-MM-DD,12:21:01,283,3,"#00000cbc","#00000fac","info ","usercntmaad","DN: CN=John Doe,OU=Users,OU=Domain,DC=Domain,DC=local (jodoe)"
    YYYY-MM-DD,12:21:01,283,3,"#00000cbc","#00000fac","info ","usercntmaad","uid: 'fdbde413768d224d44c8e1cf8aae994c'"
    YYYY-MM-DD,12:21:01,283,3,"#00000cbc","#00000fac","info ","usercntmaad","User included"
    YYYY-MM-DD,12:21:01,283,3,"#00000cbc","#00000fac","info ","usercntmaad","DN: CN=Jane Doe,OU=Users,OU=Domain,DC=Domain,DC=local (jadoe)"
    YYYY-MM-DD,12:21:01,283,3,"#00000cbc","#00000fac","info ","usercntmaad","uid: '2e011e215e4d1140a99deab3c8ddcabb'"
    YYYY-MM-DD,12:21:01,283,3,"#00000cbc","#00000fac","info ","usercntmaad","User included"

    In the above example John Doe and Jane Doe are being counted and archived.
