Exchange 2003 Outlook Mobile Access

Hi,

Is anyone aware of a third party tool that will allow us greater visibility while administering Outlook Mobile Access users with Exchange 2003?
We have the Microsoft Tool installed which allows us to complete a remote wipe and also see a transaction log of events that have occured. http://servername/mobileadmin See attached.
However we would like to be able to see from a glance what users are actively using ActiveSync.

The cutome LDAP query (&(&(objectClass=user)(homeMDB=*)(!(msExchOmaAdminWirelessEnable:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)))) will allow us to determine which users have the permissions applied to their account, however we need to be able to see which users are actually using it.
I realise that we could look through logs etc, and also that 2010/2007 allows greater granular visibility through powershell but need to be able to see this level of detail within Exchange 2003 SP2.

Any assistance much appreciated

Kind regards. ActiveSync.doc

Most of the Activesync information are store in IIS logs. You can use logpraser or other IIS monitoring tool for checking the logs.

Thank you for your responses.

Exmon would have to be run on each backend Exchange server for a period of time for us to see this.
We want to be able to see this in a quick simple manner as and when necessary.
Parsing the IIS logs again is not an option for us - it would be too laborious.

Is anyone aware of a third party tool that could facilite this?

Kind regards.

I didn't came across any 3rd party tool. But Logpraser tool is easy to use. I have found one site which have some batch files for collecting logs. Check them and see if this fits to your need
