The logs will be on the servers holding the CAS roles.

You will need to download MS Log Parser tool to make the logs readable.

Copy the log files from the appropriate inetpub folder (probably something like C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1) to a temp or working folder of your choice on your workstation.

Merge the logs together using:

logparser.exe -i:iisw3c “select * into c:\temp\complete.log from c:\temp\*” -o:csv

Open in new window


Extract the relevant data from the logs:

LogParser -i:csv “SELECT cs-username, date, time, c-ip, cs-uri-stem, cs(User-Agent) FROM C:\temp\complete.log TO C:\temp\Output.csv WHERE cs-method LIKE ‘%get%’ and cs-uri-stem LIKE ‘%owa%’
