New-CsClsConfiguration

Creates a new collection of centralized logging configuration settings. Centralized logging provides a way for administrators to simultaneously enable or disable Skype for Business Server tracing on multiple computers. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2013.

Description

The centralized logging service (which replaces the OCSLogger and OCSTracer tools used in Microsoft Lync Server 2010) provides a way for administrators to manage logging and tracing for all computers and pools running Skype for Business Server. Centralized logging enables administrators to stop, start, and configure logging for one or more pools and computers by using a single command; for example, you can use one command to enable Address Book service logging on all your Address Book servers. This differs from the OCSLogger and OCSTracer tools, which had to be individually managed (including individually stopped and started) on each server. In addition, the centralized logging service also provides a way for administrators to search trace logs from the command, using the Windows PowerShell command-line interface and the Search-CsClsLogging cmdlet.

Centralized logging is built around a series of predefined scenarios that offer a more finely-targeted approach to logging than offered in previous versions of Skype for Business Server. These scenarios predetermine the server components and logging for you; as a result, an administrator enabling the RGS scenario can be confident that he or she will only log information relevant to the Response Group service and not to, say, the audio conferencing provider service.

It is also possible to define custom scenarios by using the New-CsClsScenario cmdlet.

Centralized logging is managed by using collections of centralized logging service configuration settings. When you install Skype for Business Server, you install a global set of these configuration settings; in addition, administrators can add custom settings collections at the site scope. This is done by using the New-CsClsConfiguration cmdlet.

Skype for Business Server Control Panel: The functions carried out by the New-CsCClsConfiguration cmdlet are not available in the Skype for Business Server Control Panel.

Examples

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

New-CsClsConfiguration -Identity "site:Redmond" -EtlFileRolloverSizeMB 40 -EtlFileRolloverMinutes 120

The command shown in Example 1 creates a new collection of centralized logging configuration settings for the Redmond site. In this new collection, the ETL file rollover size is set to 40 megabytes, and the ETL file rollover time is set to 2 hours (120 minutes).

Required Parameters

-Identity

Unique identifier for the centralized logging configuration settings to be created. Because these settings can only be created at the site scope, use syntax similar to this, with the prefix "site:" followed by the name of the site:

-Identity "site:Redmond"
