ADFS - Turning Debug Tracing on

I was struggling last week with some ADFS issues and I decided to turn debug tracing on to see if it threw any light as to why it wasn't working, it didn't, the issue was somewhere else, but it might be useful for future reference, so here it goes:

1. Start the event viewer:
Start | Run | eventvwr
2. Disable ADFS event log:
3. Run the following command with elevated permissions (i.e. Run as Administrator):
wevtutil sl "AD FS 2.0 Tracing/Debug" /l:5
4. Enable ADFS event log.
5. Ensure that Analytic and Debug logs are enabled
  View | Show Analytic and Debug logs
6. Enjoy all the debug output goodness.
