    There may be a situation in which you may need to enable Debug logging for the Managed Planet Barcode Core service. This service is mainly responsible for merging devices that have been imported into your Inventory through the various means in DTS to import items.



    To enable debug logging please use the following steps:


    Step 1 - Create a DWORD named BarcodeDebugLevel in the following location:

    64Bit OS - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Managed Planet\Core


    Step 2 - Set BarcodeDebugLevel = 4


    Step 3 - After the registry is changed you will need to restart the Managed Planet Core Scan Processor and the Managed Planet Barcode Core service.


    At this point, you should see additional details in your Event Viewer or in the following log file: "C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\MP_Log\ManagedPlanet.Core.Barcode.exe.20151216141110.log"


    Do not leave this enabled on a core for very long as it will fill up your hard drive if left on ***
