HealthChecker

This script is the Exchange Server Health Checker script that helps detect common configuration issues that are known to cause performance issues within an Exchange Environment. You can run this script against every Exchange Server that is in your environment and it will clearly indicate what you should be addressing.

How To Run

This script MUST be run as Administrator in Exchange Management Shell on an Exchange Server. You can provide no parameters and the script will just run against the local server and provide the detail output of the configuration of the server.

Within the version 2.18 or greater, you are now able to generate a HTML report from the XML files that are created from the initial collection of the Health Checker Script. For this to work, you need to have run the Health Checker Script against all the servers that you would like in the report and have all the XML outputs in a single directory. After this, you can run the Health Checker script again with using the parameter -BuildHtmlServersReport and we will generate a nice HTML report that will combined all the information into a single view.

Examples:

This cmdlet with run Health Checker Script by default and run against the local server.

.\HealthChecker.ps1

This cmdlet will run the Health Checker Script against the specified server.

.\HealthChecker.ps1 -Server EXCH1

This cmdlet will build the HTML report for all the XML files located in the same location as the Health Checker Script.

.\HealthChecker.ps1 -BuildHtmlServersReport

This cmdlet will build the HTML report for all the XML files located in the directory specified in the XMLDirectoryPath Parameter.

.\HealthChecker.ps1 -BuildHtmlServersReport -XMLDirectoryPath C:\Location

This cmdlet will run the Health Checker Load Balancing Report for all the Exchange 2013/2016 CAS (Front End connections only) in the Organization.

.\HealthChecker.ps1 -LoadBalancingReport

This cmdlet will run the Health Checker Load Balancing Report for these Servers EXCH1, EXCH2, and EXCH3

.\HealthChecker.ps1 -LoadBalancingReport -CasServerList EXCH1,EXCH2,EXCH3

This cmdlet will run the Health Checker Load Balancing Report for the Exchange 2013/2016 CAS (Front End connections only) in the site SiteA.

*.\HealthChecker.ps1 -LoadBalancingReport -SiteName SiteA

This cmdlet will run the Health Checker Mailbox Report against the Server EXCH1
