How to find the oldest file in a certian location

I wanted to find the oldest recording on the local hardrive.

I had a Mitel call recorder (MIVCR) which had started deleting recording due to an error and i wanted to find out the oldest recording left on the recording drive

I could use the MIVCR software but that only shows you the oldest in SQL not the oldest on the hardrive (they maybe the same)

Web proxy troubleshooting. Logs to check.

The logs to check when accessing the AWV through a web proxy are located on the web proxy MBG

/var/logs/httpd/access_log

and

/var/logs/httpd/error_log

The best way to watch them as you perform a test connection is using the “tail -f” command in putty or from the console

If you dont know how to putty to see the mbg console check out this post

Example:

tail -f /var/log/httpd/error_log |grep {your ip address you are connecting from}

and

tail -f /var/log/httpd/access_log |grep {your ip address you are connecting from}

MSL port query commands, web proxy etc

Run these commands from putty or the console. Login as root not admin

How to download MCAClient-admin.exe from MiCollab server

When installing the MiCollab client you are also prompted to install the Mitel Collaboration Advanced client (MCA). If you are using a teminal server or citrix you may wish to install the app into a standard location rather than c:/users/username/appdata…..

To do this you will need the MCAClient-admin.exe file rather than the MCAC-launcher that you get fro the MCA website.

I could find the file on the server under

usr/awc/connpoint/content/

but wanted to web browse to that file to download it.

Could find it for 10 minutes and didn’t know how to scan the website fro downloads.

Finally found it in the audio web conferencing user help manual

http(s)://<servername>/wd/MCAClient-admin.exe
