MessageStats 7.6 - Report Pack for Outlook Web Access (OWA) User Guide

Configuring IIS Logging on the Exchange Server

Before you can use the MessageStats Report Pack for OWA, you must configure IIS logging on the Exchange server that has the OWA role installed.

The report pack supports one IIS log per site and requires the following log file format:

You must configure the extended properties. The default IIS logging configuration for the W3C Extended Log File Format is not sufficient for the report pack to gather the information required for reports.

Use the IIS Manager to configure the W3C Extended Log File Format for IIS logging on the Exchange server from which you want to gather data.

Click Start and select Administrative Tools | Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
In the Server Manager, select the Web Server (IIS) and open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
Set the Format to W3C and click Select Fields.

Installing the Report Pack for OWA

Double-click the autorun.exe file and select the Install tab.
Select the Outlook Web Access link.
Read the license agreement and select the I accept the terms in the license agreement check box and click Next.
Click Next to begin the installation.

Configuring the OWA Report Pack and Gathering Data

Assigning the OWA Server Role

Before you gather information from your Exchange OWA servers, you must assign each server the OWA server role in MessageStats.

In Microsoft Exchange, server roles identify the services that the server provides. Since the OWA reports provide information about activity on an Exchange OWA server, you must assign the OWA server role to identify your Exchange OWA servers.

In the MessageStats console treeview, expand the Exchange Organizations node and select an organization.
Expand the Servers node and right-click an Exchange OWA server.
Select Properties.
Select the Server Roles tab and click Add.
Select OWA from the list and click OK.

MessageStats retrieves the server role for the server from Active Directory and assigns the same server role in MessageStats. The server role is displayed in the Discovered Server Roles box. You cannot remove the server role value for a “discovered” server role.

You can add additional server roles to any Exchange server. You can remove a server role if the role is identified as being assigned.
