Lync Server 2010 Meeting Content Viewer

The Meeting Content Viewer tool is an administrative tool you can use to convert Lync Server 2010 web conferencing (meeting) content, such as whiteboard and poll files saved in the file store by Lync Server 2010, from its binary format into a viewable format. 
To install the Lync Server 2010 Meeting Content Viewer tool, download DMViewer.msi to the target machine. To install the tool using default settings, run DMViewer.msi. The MSI installs the tool binaries in \Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Data MCU Viewer

Anyone who has the rights and permissions required to read the file store used by Lync Server 2010 can run this tool to convert data.

Syntax
DMViewer.exe log=[true|false] cmdir=[folder_name] ccdir=[folder_name] cid=[conference_id] outdir=[output_folder]
Where,
·         log = True for turning on tracing and False for turning off tracing for the tool
·         cmdir = Folder where conference metadata is stored by Lync Server for a specific user, such as \\share\CollabMetadata\user1
·         ccdir = Folder where conference content is stored by Lync Server for a specific user, such as \\share\CollabContent\user1
·         cid = Unique conference ID for the conference
·         outdir = Folder where converted output is to be stored

Example
DMViewer.exe log=[true] cmdir=[\\co-meetings-1\share\CollabMetadata\User1Hash] ccdir=[\\co-meetings-1\share\CollabContent\User1Hash] cid=[YVF2JPYC] outdir=[c:\conferences\converted]
Lync Server uses the hash of the meeting organizer (in the path of the folder used to store the meeting content).  If you would like to find the user hash for a specific meeting organizer, you can use the following syntax.  

DMViewer.exe org=[organizer_uri]
Where,
  • org = the URI for the user who organized the meeting

Output
The tool generates the output in the following format:
[output_folder]/[conference_id]/polls.xml[output_folder]/[conference_id]/whiteboards.xml[output_folder]/[conference_id]/whitebaords.zip

Polls.xml file contains the polls created during the meeting. The file is in XML format.Whiteboards.xml contains the whiteboards created during the meeting. The file is in XML format.Whiteboards.zip contains the whiteboards created during the meeting. The file is in HTML/CSS/JS format.
For each whiteboard in the meeting, the tool generates a whiteboards.zip file that contains a folder for each whiteboard.
-          [extracted_folder]/[whiteboard_name]/Images
-          [extracted_folder]/[whiteboard_name]/Scripts
-          [extracted_folder]/[whiteboard_name]/Styles
-          [extracted_folder]/[whiteboard_name]/WebPages
