I have a customer that wants a report of how many times a specific user has accessed Outlook Web Access since Jan 1, 2006.  Any thoughts on the best way to do this?

Thanks,
Chris

The easiest way to do this is via the applog.  turn up logging to verify that you capture these connections.  Then search in the eventvwr by using the "find" option, put in the users info and voila (i think you need samaccountname, but maybe alias .. forgot what it logs)

I know I am capturing them and have been - SBS Reporting shows the connections for the last 2 weeks in report form - but I need to go back further.....I think it is logged in a different location.

I have worked with SBS a little, but not at great length.  The additional tools just make the admins job a little easier, tyhe low-level tools such as ADUC are still more powerful.  I would think the same as your reporting tool.

This may/may not be logged in the eventvwr, I would think that it is.  If it is, you can increase the size of your log.

Also, it could be logged by IIS, you can offload that to an ODBC connection (log to an access database) to get weeks workth of logs, but if your reporting tool is opened to show all instances from that length of time, I would imagine they have simply been overwritten.

This will all depend on the type and level of logging that has been enabled on the server.
Does the information exist? If not, then you can't report on it. I can't think of anything suitable that is logged by default.
