Exchange 2010 - Scripting. Log Files, Event Viewer events etc.

Hey Guys,

Hoping you can help here. I need a script that simply copies copies all of the message tracking log files, IIS log files.

From any Exchange Server (without knowing the sevrer names) to a specific location on a machine (to later be analyzed by logparser).

Any ideas? Also this would need to be either a batch script or a powershell script but not a 3rd party application.

Thanks,

Robert

some simple xcopy/copy commands

i.e.
xcopy \\servername\c$\program files\microsoft\exchagne\v14\TransportRoles\Logs\MessageTracking\*.log c:\logs\server1


if you want to make it more scripted you could working

get-exchagneserver

parse this to an array in powershell to then do the xcopy. I don't have something ready but could try and put something together if the simple xcopy doesn't do the trick


Depending on what you want to achieve out of the logs this might be a ready made bit of powershell that will do it for you. I have used and amended this to do what i wanted and it works a treat.
