Test-ExchangeServerHealth.ps1

PowerShell script to generate a report of the health of an Exchange Server 2010/2013 environment.

Performs a series of health checks on Exchange servers and DAGs and outputs the results to screen, and optionally to log file, HTML report, and HTML email.

Usage

Create an ignorelist.txt file in the same folder as the script to specify any servers, DAGs, or databases you want the script to ignore (eg test/dev servers).

Modify the SMTP settings in the script to send emails to your own address:

#...................................
# Modify these Email Settings
#...................................

$smtpsettings = @{
    To =  "administrator@exchangeserverpro.net"
    From = "exchangeserver@exchangeserverpro.net"
    Subject = "$reportemailsubject - $now"
    SmtpServer = "smtp.exchangeserverpro.net"
    }

When running the script on non-English servers you can modify the following variables in the script to match your language so that the script does not give errors or incorrect results.

#...................................
# Modify these language 
# localization strings.
#...................................

# The server roles must match the role names you see when you run Test-ServiceHealth.
$casrole = "Client Access Server Role"
$htrole = "Hub Transport Server Role"
$mbrole = "Mailbox Server Role"
$umrole = "Unified Messaging Server Role"

# This should match the word for "Success", or the result of a successful Test-MAPIConnectivity test
$success = "Success"

For example, a German system would use the following values:

# The server roles must match the role names you see when you run Test-ServiceHealth.
$casrole = "Clientzugriffs-Serverrolle"
$htrole = "Hub-Transport-Serverrolle"
$mbrole = "Postfachserverrolle"
$umrole = "Unified Messaging-Serverrolle"

# This should match the word for "Success", or the result of a successful Test-MAPIConnectivity test
$success = "Erfolgreich"

Parameters

  • -Server, Perform a health check of a single server
  • -ReportMode, Set to $true to generate a HTML report. A default file name is used if none is specified.
  • -ReportFile, Allows you to specify a different HTML report file name than the default.
  • -SendEmail, Sends the HTML report via email using the SMTP configuration within the script.
  • -AlertsOnly, Only sends the email report if at least one error or warning was detected.
  • -Log, Writes a log file to help with troubleshooting.

Examples

Checks all servers in the organization and outputs the results to the shell window.

.\Test-ExchangeServerHealth.ps1 -Server HO-EX2010-MB1

Checks the server HO-EX2010-MB1 and outputs the results to the shell window.

.\Test-ExchangeServerHealth.ps1 -ReportMode -SendEmail

Checks all servers in the organization, outputs the results to the shell window, a HTML report, and emails the HTML report to the address configured in the script.
