Replacement of Flat File Logging Functionality

Office 2007

In Live Communications Server 2005 SP1, flat file logging could be used for collecting information about system usage at a specific time, such as IM from users (for example, from userA@contoso.com to userB@contoso.com). In Office Communications Server 2007, the recommended way of capturing this information is to deploy an Archiving and CDR Server. Flat file logging that was a part of prior server releases, such as Live Communications Server 2005 SP1, is no longer part of the product and has been replaced with functionality of the Office Communications Server 2007 Logging Tool. However, for troubleshooting purposes, you can use Office Communications Server 2007 Logging Tool to get the equivalent of flat file logs, but the current functionality is not identical to that previously available in Live Communications Server 2005 SP1.

Use the following procedure to implement the Office Communications Server 2007 version of this functionality. For more information about the Archiving and CDR Server, see the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Planning Guide and the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Archiving and CDR Server Deployment Guide.

  1. Open Office Communications Server 2007, Logging Tool, New Debug Session.

  2. In the Components list, select the SIPStack check box.

  3. In Flags, select the All flags check box or select the check boxes for the appropriate individual flags, including any the following: TF_PROTOCOL, TF_CONNECTION, TF_SECURITY, TF_DIAG. In Level, click Errors, Warnings, or Information. The approximate mapping of these flags and levels to prior FFL levels 1-4 is as follows:

    • FFL level 1: Errors level for TF_CONNECTION, TF_SECURITY, and TF_DIAG
    • FFL level 2: Warnings level for TF_CONNECTION and TF_DIAG, in addition to level 1 flags
    • FFL level 3: Information level for TF_CONNECTION and TF_DIAG, in addition to level 1 and 2 flags
    • FFL level 4: TF_PROTOCOL, in addition to level 1, 2, and 3 flags
  4. Click Start Logging to start logging, and then click Stop Logging to stop logging.

  5. Click View Log Files.

  6. Select the SIPStack check box.

  7. View the equivalent of flat-file logging output in Microsoft Notepad.
