SharePoint Getting Log information for a datetime span with Powershell

That should be cool for SharePoint Administrators. If you would like to get all log information from the ULS log of SharePoint you can use this cool snippet with Powershell and insert the needed datetimes. It will save the information in a file.


Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

Get-SPLogEvent -StartTime "05/06/2014 16:00" -EndTime "05/06/2014 16:30" > c:\Loginformation.log

There are many more options and it is also possible to get the windows event log in the same way. Just look at the links below:



Run a Powershell Script with Task Scheduler

Powershell gives you many options to administrate your farm, but it also can help you to get certain jobs done regularly. In one of my customer projects it was necessary to copy a certain document from library A to library B each month on the same day.

We created therefore a small powershell script which does the job including logging. Now we added it to the windows task scheduler and configured it for our needs. In the action tab we added an action which starts a program. We typed in there powershell and added the powershell script as parameter.

Parameter: -file “C:\Users\pohnke\Downloads\CopyFileToAnotherLibrary.ps1″


That’s all. The solution is simple and it took only a few minutes to get a working solution.

Another possibility would have been to develop a timer job in SharePoint with all following processes: Development, Testing, Install on Staging, Testing, Install on Production, Testing, Documentation, etc. which would take hours.

Great to have Powershell.
