Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

Export-ActiveSyncLog -Filename:"c:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\W2SVC1\ex060812.log" -StartDate:"06/08/12" -EndDate:"06/09/12" -UseGMT:$true -OutputPath:"c:\exreports\easreports"

This example exports the Exchange ActiveSync log for the date range 06/08/12 to 06/09/12. The times on the report are in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and the report is saved in c:\exreports\easreports.

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

Dir D:\Logs\*.log | Export-ActiveSyncLog -Filename:"c:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\W2SVC1\ex072012.log" -StartDate:"06/20/12" -EndDate:"07/20/12" -UseGMT:$true -Force $true -Confirm -OutputPath:"c:\exreports\easreports"

This example exports the Exchange ActiveSync log for the date range 06/20/12 to 07/20/12 by reading all log files in the D:\logs directory. All prompts are suppressed while running the report and a confirmation message is displayed. The times on the report are in UTC and the report is saved in c:\exreports\easreports.

-------------------------- Example 3 --------------------------

Export-ActiveSyncLog -Filename: "c:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\W2SVC1\ex020912.log" -StartDate:"02/01/12" -EndDate:"02/09/12" -UseGMT:$true -OutputPath:"c:\exreports\easreports"

This example exports the Exchange ActiveSync log for the date range 02/01/12 to 02/09/12. The times on the report are in UTC, and the report is saved in c:\exreports\easreports.

Required Parameters

-Filename

The Filename parameter specifies the name of the input file.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.
