Turn on extensive logging for Active Directory Domain Services domain controllers that are running Server for NIS

This policy setting allows an administrator to configure extensive logging for computers that are running Server for Network Information Service (NIS). If you enable this policy setting intermediate steps of NIS map updates or propagations and whether map updates are successful are logged for all affected computers that are running Server for NIS. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting individual computers that are running the Server for NIS log steps of map propagations based upon how the “NIS map propagation logging” policy setting on the Logging tab of the Server for NIS Properties dialog box is configured.
