Installing and Running Spok Copy Logs

Installing and Running Spok Copy Logs 

Spok CopyLogs is a great tool to use to create a “snapshot” of the Spok log files when an issue occurs in Medicall.  The application copies log and configuration files from the workstation and saved them to the FileShare server.

This accomplishes several things:

  • Prevents logs from being overwritten
  • Provides an approximate time stamp for when the issue occurred
  • Moving the files to the FileShare server allows the Spok Support Engineer to access this information without having to interrupt users.
  • Below are steps to install and run Spok CopyLogs.
