Lync Server 2013 Centralized Logging UI- Beta

Update 4/24/2013:

As anyone who came to this blog probably realized, my Lync 2013 Centralized Logging UI quickly became outdated. Luckily, James from has done a great job of bringing it back to life!


Definitely check this out and support that project. He has done a great job of not only fixing my tool, but making it better. Thanks!


All of this talk about Lync Server 2013 centralized logging has driven me to start a little side project. A powershell UI for the lync centralized logging. I am hopefully going to add a lot more features to this, but figured I would share the early beta to get some feedback.

For more details on lync centralized logging, see this link:

Couple of things:

  1. Right now this must be run from a Lync 2013 Server
  2. This assumes that the default C:\Program Files was selected on install, if this is not where Lync is installed, you may have issues, and may need to adjust that file path.
  3. Right now it does not let you search specific text or components, I will be adding that functionality in the next rev.
Link to download is here:

If you have any suggestions, please let me know in the comments, thanks!


UPDATE: 9:30PM 8/2/2012- I just finished “Beta 2” I re designed the UI. it can be found in the above link. Thanks!

UPDATE: 10:15PM 8/2/2012- I just finished “Beta 3” I added filter options to Beta 3. Link is above!


UPDATE:  8/4/2012- I just finished “Beta 4” I performed some cleanup and tweaks, as well as the ability to export your specific component logs as well.
