Logging options include components, logging level, and flags to include in the log file contents. When it starts, Logging Tool detects any installed Office Communications Server components and then searches all their installation directories for executable files. It displays only those components that have an executable file on the computer. While tracing is running, you can select and cancel the use of specific components, levels, or flags. The trace sessions will update accordingly. Changes are applied immediately to the running trace for the selected component. You need to configure how logging is implemented for each of the following:
Level. For components that honor levels, you can specify an
appropriate log level:
- Fatal errors
- Fatal errors
Flags. For each component, you can further specify logging
flags. Only the flags available for a component are available in
the list. You should select flags as advised by Microsoft Customer
Service and Support.
By default, all components honor the TF_COMPONENT flag. Selecting the All Flagscheck box enables generation of detailed traces (the former LcsTracer "Trace" option), which can then be used by Microsoft Customer Service and Support to further troubleshoot a problem.
Note: You can change flags for particular components after logging is enabled.
Components. The available components include the components
that belong to the Office Communications Server role on which you
are running Logging Tool. You should select components as advised
by Microsoft Customer Service and Support. You can also enable or
disable components after logging is started. Logging Tool collects
logs for a component during the time it is enabled.
To specify logging options
Open Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Logging Tool, New Debug Session.
In Logging Options, select the components, level, and flags to be used for logging.
