|A while ago, an article about how to troubleshoot Workgroup Management (MCX) with a MCXDebug setting. Here's how to do the same thing with Portable Home Directories.|
FIrst, as with MCX, Mirror Agent has a setting using the defaults command. Here's how to enable it:
defaults write com.apple.MirrorAgent debugOutput 4
Although the value above is shown as 4, it can be set at any level between 0 and 4. This command writes debugging information to the MirrorAgent.log, found in ~/Library/Logs.
A second quick thing that can be done is a force reset of the synchronization database. It's very simple, simply hold down option-click when logging in. The entire database will be reset.
