Backing up the ULS and IIS logs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it best practice to backup the ULS and IIS logs on each server? If so how many days worth?

    I think this could be useful to have in the event of a server failure.

    Does anyone else do this?

    Cheers

  • Basically its depend upon your requirement and also how big is the Logs files are?

    We basically set the ULS logs set to 30 days and IIS logs for 6 months.

    UlS logs setting you can control from Central admin > Monitoring > configure Diagnostic loggin> 

    For IIS logs, you can compress and move to new location. check this for it http://exchangeserverpro.com/powershell-script-iis-logs-cleanup/
