This article explains how you can create a so-called debug log for the UCServer and make it available for analysis

Logfiles can only be examined if reasonable anchor points are available. Therefore always provide the following additional information:

    • When did a malfunction occur (timestamp with date and time, at least to the minute)?
    • Which internal extensions were involved?
    • Which external participants were involved?
    • Process of the workflow that led to an error


UCServer Administration

Menu item General – Events

  1. Please set the UCServer event log to Log everything (including debug information) (1) and click Apply (green check mark in the toolbar).
  2. Use the Delete log files (2) button to delete all old log files, provided that the log files already present do not contain the incident to be analyzed or are otherwise no longer relevant.
  3. After you have reproduced the problem or the incident to be reported has reoccurred, use the Provide log files button (3) to create the log files as zip-folders on your desktop.

Please send this ZIP archive, including the above information on useful anchor points, to your responsible support instance if necessary.

Increase the number of recent log files

It may be necessary to carry out a special configuration measure for estos ProCall Enterprise Server logging, especially if a rarely occurring event is to be recorded in a log file or log files are deleted too quickly due to a high logging volume. The information described in the article Increasing the number of ProCall Enterprise Server log files shows options for increasing the number of recent log files to be kept in order to be able to look back further into the past for analyses.

Procedure if access to the UCServer administration is not possible

If there is no access to the estos ProCall Enterprise UCServer administration, logging can still be influenced.

The set log level is stored in the ProCall Enterprise server configuration file startup.xml.

in ProCall 7 Enterprise Server x64C:\Program Files\estos\UCServer\config\
in ProCall 7 Enterprise Server x86C:\Program Files (x86)\estos\UCServer\config\

The <LogFile> section contains the keyword <LogLevel>:


The value of the <LogLevel> keyword can be set to the values 1 to 4:

1Only log errors
2Logging errors and warnings
