This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console to open the Routing Log Viewer, a new tool with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1). Use the Routing Log Viewer to open a routing log file that contains information about how the routing topology appears to the server that has the Exchange 2007 Hub Transport server role or the Exchange 2007 Edge Transport server role installed.

In addition, you can use the Routing Log Viewer to open a second routing log and determine the changes that have occurred within the routing topology between two time periods.

Before You Begin

To use the Routing Log Viewer to view logs of routing table configuration changes, the account that you use must be delegated as the following:

  • Exchange View-Only Administrator role

To use the Routing Log Viewer on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.


To use the Exchange Management Console to open the Routing Log Viewer

  1. Open the Exchange Management Console.

  2. Click Toolbox, and then under the Mail flow tools category, click Routing Log Viewer.
