Check Your Exchange Server Status

If you have an Exchange Server and want to check its status, Exchange has a PowerShell API just for this.  Check out this zip file exchange-serverhealth, which includes a powershell script to put on your Exchange Server and a “Monarch” Service Profile that you can import into your NetEye Monarch Monitoring Configuration Application.

On your Exchange server you have to put the PowerShell script into the scripts folder on the NetEyeNSClient++ Installation (normally inside C:\Program Files\NetEyeNSClient++\scripts) and configure the following external command inside your nsclient.ini file:


[/settings/external scripts/scripts]
ps1=cmd /c echo scripts\$ARG1$; exit($lastexitcode) | powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -command -

After restarting the NSClient Service you should be able to call the script from your NetEye Server. The Services configured in the Monarch XML are the following:

  • NRPE_Windows_Exchange_Activesync
  • NRPE_Windows_Exchange_Imap
  • NRPE_Windows_Exchange_OWA
  • NRPE_Windows_Exchange_OutlookTCP
  • NRPE_Windows_Exchange_POP3

And your Monitoring view will show something like this:

This will help you to see the health status of your Exchange Server better.

NetEye Solution Architect at Würth Phoenix
I have over 20 years of experience in the IT branch. After first experiences in the field of software development for public transport companies, I finally decided to join the young and growing team of Würth Phoenix. Initially, I was responsible for the internal Linux/Unix infrastructure and the management of CVS software. Afterwards, my main challenge was to establish the meanwhile well-known IT System Management Solution WÜRTHPHOENIX NetEye. As a Product Manager I started building NetEye from scratch, analyzing existing open source models, extending and finally joining them into one single powerful solution. After that, my job turned into a passion: Constant developments, customer installations and support became a matter of personal. Today I use my knowledge as a NetEye Senior Consultant as well as NetEye Solution Architect at Würth Phoenix.
