Blackberry Enterprise Server –>Deleting log file on the basis of Age

Hi Readers,

I am just sharing a small script that you can use to schedule on your enviornment managements server & it will delete the logs from Bes/ BAS servers on the basis of age.

Just modify the script according to your enviornment. This script will map the droive from the BB server & will remove the unwanted logs. Below is the example for 90 days old logs. Also for my BB servers all the logs are placed in d drive (different from the binaries) —thats important.

Also remove the Delete clause at first so that you will know what will be deleted. ones you are sure, append the delete clause.

$a= Get-ChildItem  $path | Where{$_.LastWriteTime -lt $days }

write-host $a

#write to Log file what files will be deleted
$output =  “C:\Scripts” + “\” + “logs” + “\” + “$BES” + “_” + “$date” + “_log.txt”

Add-content $output “$a log files have been deleted”

$a | Foreach-Object { del $_.FullName -recurse}
