Last year, I wrote a script for pulling out information from Exchange 2007 log files on Windows Server 2003 to detail information about EWS, ActiveSync and WebDAV clients. The purpose of this script was primarily to make it easy to find out about client you need to test before moving to Exchange 2010.
I’ve been meaning for a while to make an update to the script, as one issue with original version is that is was aimed only at Windows 2003 servers – and naturally there are a fair few Windows 2008 and 2008 R2 servers running Exchange Server 2007. The script is also useful when checking out what’s in the current environment before migrating to Office 365, so it’s applicable to Exchange 2010 as well.
So, I’m pleased to say that I’ve finally updated the script to support Windows 2008, 2008 R2, and also tested the script against Exchange 2007 and 2010 logfiles.
As with the previous version, it’s a little slow on larger log files, taking an hour or so for a 500MB log file and for log files of around 3GB each it can take around 6 hours.. So a future Log Parser Studio version might be in order.
