Test-WebServicesConnectivity [-ClientAccessServer <ServerIdParameter>] [-AllowUnsecureAccess <SwitchParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-LightMode <SwitchParameter>] [-MailboxCredential <PSCredential>] [-MailboxServer <ServerIdParameter>] [-MonitoringContext <SwitchParameter>] [-ResetTestAccountCredentials <SwitchParameter>] [-Timeout <UInt32>] [-TrustAnySSLCertificate <SwitchParameter>] [-UseAutodiscoverForClientAccessServer <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description

AllowUnsecureAccess

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The AllowUnsecureAccess switch specifies whether to enable the command to continue to run over an unsecured channel that doesn't require Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

ClientAccessServer

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The ClientAccessServer parameter specifies the Client Access server to use when the command is run.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.

LightMode

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The LightMode parameter instructs the command to perform only a subset of the connectivity tests. When you use this parameter, only the GetFolder operation is tested.

MailboxCredential

Optional

System.Management.Automation.PSCredential

The MailboxCredential parameter specifies the mailbox to use when the command is run.

MailboxServer

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The MailboxServer parameter specifies the identity of the Exchange Mailbox server on which the test is run.

MonitoringContext

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The MonitoringContext parameter specifies whether the test result is passed to Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007. If this parameter is set to $true, the test result is passed to Operations Manager 2007. If this parameter is set to $false, the test result appears only on the command line.

ResetTestAccountCredentials

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The ResetTestAccountCredentials parameter resets the password for the test account used to run this command. The password for the test account is typically reset every 7 days. When this parameter is used, a password reset is forced any time that it's needed for security reasons.

Timeout

Optional

System.UInt32

The Timeout parameter specifies the amount of time, in seconds, to wait for the test operation to finish. The default value for the Timeout parameter is 300 seconds. You must specify a time-out value greater than 0 seconds. We recommend that you always configure this parameter with a value of 5 seconds or more.

TrustAnySSLCertificate

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The TrustAnySSLCertificate parameter allows the test to use any SSL certificate available.

UseAutodiscoverForClientAccessServer

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The UseAutodiscoverForClientAccessServer parameter specifies whether the test should use the Autodiscover service to locate the Client Access server.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.

The Test-WebServicesConnectivity cmdlet tests the functionality of Exchange Web Services. The Test-WebServicesConnectivity cmdlet performs basic operations to verify the functionality of Outlook Anywhere. The operations tested by default are GetFolder, CreateItem, DeleteItem, and SyncFolderItems. The results of each test are returned by the Exchange Management Shell.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Test Exchange Web Services" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

Error Description

 

 

Exceptions Description
