ULS logs question? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I have multi-tier SP farm. Right now i have to go to each server to see the uls log for an error. I have uls log viewer but i researched online and none said that i can see the uls logs of SharePoint farm from one central location. Is there a way that i can see the whole farm uls logs centrally? 

    Right now each server is configured to write logs in separate drive rather  than 15 hive. Can i have a file share setup in different server where all the logs can be written outside of SP farm? If yes what permissions do that file share require? Write permission from timer/farm account? 

    Please suggest.

  • You can leverage Merge-SPLogFile to help consolidate logs.
