Enable or Disable Information Rights Management Logging

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-12

In Exchange Server 2013, you can use Information Rights Management (IRM) logs to monitor and troubleshoot IRM operations. IRM logging is enabled by default.

IRM logs use the following common set of parameters:

  • IrmLogEnabled   Enables or disables IRM logging. Default: $true.
  • IrmLogMaxAge   Specifies the maximum age of IRM log files. Files older than the specified age are deleted. Default: 30 days.
  • IrmLogMaxDirectorySize   Specifies the maximum size of the directory that contains IRM logs. When a directory reaches its maximum file size, the server deletes the oldest log files first. Default: 250 MB.
  • IrmLogMaxFileSize   Specifies the maximum size of each IRM log file. When a log file reaches the specified size, a new log file is created. Default: 10 MB.
  • IrmLogPath   Specifies the location of the IRM log directory. Default: %ExchangeInstallPath%Logging\IRMLogs.

For additional management tasks related to IRM, see Information Rights Management Procedures.

  • Estimated time to complete each procedure: 2-5 minutes.
  • You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure or procedures. To see what permissions you need, see the "Configure IRM logging" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.
  • You can't use the Exchange Administration Center (EAC) to enable or disable IRM logging on a server. You must use the Shell
  • For information about keyboard shortcuts that may apply to the procedures in this topic, see Keyboard Shortcuts in the Exchange Admin Center.
