Understanding AdDiag Report Output

AdDiag can generate a report containing the following sections of information.

General Info

Provides user configuration details.

TS Info

Provides information about whether or not Microsoft Terminal Server is running.

Managed Apps (Local List)

Lists all applications with information stored in the registry. The applications are listed by GUID. The GUID is set from the Software Installation snap-in, so in a case where the friendly name does not appear correct, the GUID is the information of most use in troubleshooting.

Assign count is the count of full advertisements executed for the application. This should make a difference only in Roaming User Profile (RUP) cases, the only cases when additional full advertisements are made for the same user.
