Default ESS switchover

I want to know if is possible to check if an ESS become active in the past. For example I need to check if in 9 September ESS become the master CM. I also need to know if is it possible to check the station's registrations in the past. For example if in 9 September some endpoints lost registrations to the CM.

I would grep the system logs for IP Ent Point registrations something like:

logc -t "YYYYMMDD" --view ipevt | grep "ext= {station number here}"

Note the use of:
logc --view ipevt - IP events (interfaces up/down; telephone/endpoint registration / unregistration

If you are unfamiliar with Logc see below which is also described in "Maintenance Commands for Avaya Aura® Communication Manager, Branch Gateways and Servers"


dhelp logc
logv [OPTIONS]... [LOGS...] [-t TIME] [[-a]FILTERS]...
logc [OPTIONS]... [LOGS...] [-t TIME] [[-a]FILTERS]...
logw [OPTIONS]... [LOG] [[-a]FILTERS]...
Merges and displays the various log files in the system.
Logv edits (vi) the results, while logc sends (cats) them to the
standard output. Logw watches the single specified logfile
for changes applying the specified filters.
OPTIONS to modify command operation:
-? produce this message
-v show the version of the command
-c cat the log instead (set if called with name logc)
-ls list the names and sizes of log files
-w watch the log instead (set if called with name logw)
-b remove blank lines
-d augment timestamps with time delta between resulting entries
separator line will be output for times greater than N (1) seconds
-r reverse order (latest entry is shown first)
-s strip off the timestamp (and other header) on each line
-st strip off other header (leaving timestamp) on each line
-sd strip off other header (leaving timestamp) on each line, and format the timestamp yyyy/mm/dd HH:MM:SS
--views List the predefined log views. A view specifies a log type as
well as other selection parameters.
Display the log using the parameters associated with VIEWNAME
-ld dir look for log files in directory dir (instead of default directory)
-lf file assume file is a log file (multiple -lf's can be given)
-clear clear the log files (only logmanager files)
all all possible
lm Logmanager debug trace
lxboot Operating system boot messages
lxsys Linux syslog
lxsec Linux access security log
lxwtmp Linux login/logout/reboot log
lxxfer Linux file transfer log
wd Watchdog logs
cmds Platform command history log
httperr HTTP/web server error log
httpssl HTTP/web SSL request log
httpaccess HTTP/web access log
cmrestart Communication Manager Restart log
filesync Communication Manager file synchronizations
multiple logs can be given--logs are merged and sorted by time
-l only the latest file in a log searched (default is all)
-t TIME filter for a particular date/time
time pattern
time range
multiple time patterns/ranges can be given--entries that match
any time will be output
app-pat filter events for particular application/process (e.g. capro).
An arbitrary string which does not match any LOG name can be given.
Unless -g is specified, app-pat must be found at beginning of a
:-separated field or preceeded by a [ or space. Multiple app-pats
can be given--log entries that match any app-pat will be output
unless -a is also specified.
-a app-pats following a -a are applied to the output of those preceding
the -a. App-pats following -a are considered to be grep patterns.
-g assume app-pat filters are grep patterns instead of appnames
-i assume app-pat filters are grep patterns and ignore case of letters

logc -?
logc --views - List the predefined log views

“logc –view ipevt” or “sudo logc –view ipevt
