How to start the Trace service

The Windows SharePoint Services Tracing (SPTrace) service is used by Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 to manage trace output of the call stack. When trace logging is enabled, administrators can specify the path used to store the trace logs. This log file is reused by many applications that are built on top of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

The Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Tracing (SPTrace) service is a required service on all Microsoft SharePoint Foundation servers. If this service is stopped, error messages are not logged on the server.

How to Start the Trace service:
1. Log on to the SharePoint Foundation server as an administrator.
2. In a Command Prompt window, type the following at the command prompt:
3. net start SPTrace
