Skype for Business Monitoring Reports

Modifying Lync Server 2013 or Skype for Business 2015 Monitoring Reports URLs on the Control Panel

After moving the Skype for Business Monitoring Reports to a new SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) instance on another server, everything was working, but I was still seeing the old server and the new links to the Reporting Service on the Control Panel under “View Monitoring reports”.

So I add to remove the old Monitoring report server and edit the new one with the correct link page.

To do that I add made the following step:

  1. To check the configuration:

    Get-CsReportingConfiguration

    (For Lync Server 2010 “Get-CsService -MonitoringServer | Select-Object Identity”)

  2. Identify the old monitoring server and run:

    Remove-CsReportingConfiguration –identify “Service:….”

  3. Check that the old server is now removed:

    Get-CsReportingConfiguration

  4. Edit the new server with the desired configurations:

    Set-CsMonitoringServer -Identity ” Service:….”” -ReportingUrl “https://server.[domain]/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?/LyncServerReports/Reports%20Home%20Page

Now you can see that I only have one link under the “View Monitoring reports” and it works with the correct link.

Search message tracking logs

Message tracking records the message activity as mail flows through the transport pipeline on Mailbox servers and Edge Transport servers. You can use the Get-MessageTrackingLog cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell to search for entries in the message tracking log by using specific search criteria. For example:

  • Find out what happened to a message that was sent by a user to a specific recipient.
  • Find out if a transport rule acted on a message.
  • Find out if a message sent from an Internet sender made it into your Exchange organization.
  • Find all messages sent by a specified user during a specified time period.

This example searches the message tracking logs on the local server for all entries from 2/20/2018 8:00 AM to 2/20/2015 5:00 PM for all FAIL events where the message sender was sender@mutega.se

Get-MessageTrackingLog -ResultSize Unlimited -Start “2/20/2018 8:00AM” -End “2/20/2018 5:00PM” -EventId “Fail” -Sender “sender@mutega.se”

This example searches the message tracking logs on the local server for all entries from 2/20/2018 8:00 AM to 2/20/2015 5:00 PM for all emails sent to to@mutega.com where the message sender was sender@mutega.se

Get-MessageTrackingLog -ResultSize Unlimited -Start “2/20/2018 8:00AM” -End “2/20/2018 5:00PM” -EventId “Fail” -Sender “sender@mutega.se” -Recipients “to@mutega.com”
