If you are having problems with certain features on the Lync Web App and need to enable logging you can use the following simple procedure to enable verbose logging in the Lync Web App. To enable logging you can follow this simple procedure as outlined here. But if you are really having a problem, the default logging level may not be enough. So how to we enable verbose logging in the Lync Web App?
Force the Lync Web App
Append ?sl=1 to the end of the meeting invite to join any meeting using the LWA instead of the Lync client.
Enable verbose logging
Append ?log=full to the end of the meeting invite.
How to force the LWA and verbose logging.
That’s easy, just use the & to join the two strings together.
To get to the logs once the meeting is joined, simply press F9 to display the log window. You can then copy (CTRL+A, CTRL+C) the contents to the clipboard and paste them into a text file.
By default Lync installs SQL Express and the local databases onto the system drive during a Lync install. This is typically ok if only one drive exists on the server however, what if you have another drive which is dedicated to applications, a non-system drive. Lync will automatically move the Lync local databases to a non-system drive but SQL Express itself stays on the system drive. If there are three or more drives installed there is a way to control even further where the Lync local databases are stored.
Jens has a nice write up on installing the local databases to a separate drive that you can read here.
This still doesn’t solve the problem of installing SQL Express to a non-system drive. If you try to install SQL Express manually there is no guarantee that the install willpass the pre-requisite checks. After much trial and error along with a gentle parsing of the log files I was able to extrapolate the following command to install SQL Express to a non-system drive. Modify the following parameters to fit your build.
