Configure Calendar Repair Log Settings

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Every time the Calendar Repair Assistant (CRA) changes a calendar item on a user's mailbox, it writes to a log file. The log file contains information that identifies the calendar item that was repaired and what repair actions occurred. By default, calendar repair logging is enabled.

You can use the following Set-MailboxServer cmdlet parameters to configure calendar repair log settings:

  • CalendarRepairLogEnabled
  • CalendarRepairLogPath
  • CalendarRepairLogFileAgeLimit
  • CalendarRepairLogDirectorySizeLimit
  • CalendarRepairLogSubjectLoggingEnabled

The log file age limit specifies how long to retain calendar repair logs. Log files that exceed the maximum retention period are deleted. The default value for the age limit is 00.00:00:00, which means that there is no limit and all log files are retained.

This example changes the calendar repair log age limit to 90 days for the server MBX01.

Set-MailboxServer -Identity MBX01 -CalendarRepairLogFileAgeLimit 90

Set-MailboxServer -Identity MBX01 -CalendarRepairLogDirectorySizeLimit 1TB
