I'm a greenhorn trying to work my way up to newbie status with examples of scripts on EE,
Ed Wilson's Windows Scripting Learning Guide, and Google.  

I want to copy the log files that are older than the current days date from the IIS server to a server we archive them on, and then delete the log file from the IIS server, both servers are in the same domain.  Or simply moving the files from one server to the other would work also.

We have thirty or so sites on the server, each site has a separate folder that contains that particular sites log files.  The structure looks like \\servername\web\logfiles\www.site.org\exyymmdd.log.

I'm asking for a script that would loop though the folder and either copies and deletes, or moves the log files.  I would use Task Manager to run the script once a week.

Thanks


Thanks

Hi,

This vbscript is checking a folder and all sub folder for files named "*.log".
Then it will diff the date/time on DateLastModified attribute on the log file to get a date
to run a diff on. If that attribute is older then one day it will copy the file to a new folder.
The file will get the subfolder name below the main folder \\servername\web\logfiles and
then it's actual file name. "site1_20090414.log"

Alteast this script will get you started. There is no error handling in this script.

Regards Tompa
Dim objFSO
Dim FolderPath
Dim siteFolders
Dim CopyToFolder
FolderPath = "c:\logfiles" '\\servername\web\logfiles
CopyToFolder = "c:\temp\" 'Folder to copy to
 
Set objFSO = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder (FolderPath)
 
for each subF in objFolder.SubFolders
	Set objSiteFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(FolderPath + "\" + subF.name) ' Getting the sub folders for each site
	for each file in objSiteFolder.Files
		fileTypeCheck = instr(ucase(file.Name), ".LOG")  'One verify that it is a log file  
		if filetypeCheck <> 0 then
			check = DiffADate(file.DateLastModified) ' Running Function DiffADate to find out Diffrence in date.
			if check <> 0 then ' if <> 0 then the file is older then one day and will be copied
				cmd = file.Copy(CopyToFolder + subF.name + "_" + file.Name,false) ' File will get the name subfoldername_20090414.log 
				runDelete = file.Delete ' Will delete the file after copy. No error handling in this script if copy goes wrong
			end if
		end if 
	next
next 
 
Function DiffADate(theDate)
   	DiffADate = DateDiff("d", Now, theDate) ' Now is the date and time when script is running
End Function

Tompa99 thanks, this will get me started.  I've not had a chance to give it go, if something pops up I'll post another question.
