Zebra MC67 - Device Reboot Logging

Zebra MC67 - Device Reboot Logging

Hi,

Does anyone know if the Zebra MC67 (Windows Mobile) has any kind of logging when a device reboots or start time or uptime value stored anywhere like the registry, etc....  We are trying to solve an application issue deployed on the MC67s, and would like to be able to build a report with date/time stamps of every time a device is rebooted or powered on.  I wasn't sure if Zebra had this available or if there was any way within Mobi to grab this data or simulate it (thinking like a task to insert a record in the Mobi log at startup, etc).

Any info is appreciated.

 

Thanks

I did reach out to our Zebra support contact and they were unaware of anywhere that Zebra or Microsoft CE would store that.  Would MobiControl have any way of knowing when a device was started?  Or, could a script be executed on device start that could write data to a log or something similar?

The uptime in seconds is stored in the registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Uptime\Clock

I use a custom data to collect it in Mobicontrol on our MC67s

You could use the "device connected" and "device disconnected" in the logging if you are sure the device has always a good network available.

I'll look into collecting that, it could work for us.

 Unfortunately device connected/disconnected won't be accurate for us here as these devices are in heady duty trucks across the US and are constantly in/out of cellular coverage.
