how can i trace cat 6 lines that are unmarked and unterminated ?

Recently someone ran 10 cat 6 lines to a new office area for me through an unaccessible ceiling

He failed to label the ends of the lines

How can I trace these without having to terminate first

A tone generator will do that for you.
There are some pretty inexpensive ones out there. I will find one for you.

The cable tracker from psiber $110

they have more advanced ones that detect what kind of connection is on the other line: 10/100/1000 Voip power but those are more expensive.
