OpenIDM logs

When configuring OpenIDM for provisioning, understanding exceptions and finding their causes can be really tricky. This is why whenever I encounter a problem without some clear error message, i try to increase the OpenIDM logging levels. This can be done by editing the file openidm/conf/logging.properties.
Usually, I set the default global logging level (.level variable) to FINER or FINEST, I do the same to the OpenICF logging level (com.forgerock.openicf.level) and then I restart OpenIDM for the changes to take effect. From now on, the logs should be very verbose but at least you will have more explicit exception messages.
