Test-EcpConnectivity

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-19

Use the Test-EcpConnectivity cmdlet to verify that the Exchange Control Panel is running as expected.


Test-EcpConnectivity [-ClientAccessServer <ServerIdParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-LightMode <SwitchParameter>] [-MailboxServer <ServerIdParameter>] [-MonitoringContext <SwitchParameter>] [-ResetTestAccountCredentials <SwitchParameter>] [-RSTEndpoint <String>] [-TestType <Internal | External>] [-Timeout <UInt32>] [-TrustAnySSLCertificate <SwitchParameter>] [-VirtualDirectoryName <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Test-EcpConnectivity cmdlet can be used to test Exchange Control Panel connectivity for all Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 virtual directories on a specified Client Access server for all mailboxes on servers running Exchange in the same Active Directory site. The Test-EcpConnectivity cmdlet can also be used to test the connectivity for an individual Exchange Control Panel URL.

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 ECP" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

ClientAccessServer

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The ClientAccessServer parameter specifies the name of the Client Access server to test. If this parameter is included, all Exchange ECP virtual directories on the Client Access server are tested against all Exchange Mailbox servers in the local Active Directory site. Mailboxes that aren't on Exchange Mailbox servers are tested.

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 isn't implemented for this diagnostic command. Using this parameter doesn't change the behavior of the command.

noteNote:
This parameter is implemented for other Exchange diagnostic commands where it's used to run a less intensive version of a command.

MailboxServer

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The MailboxServer parameter specifies the name of the Mailbox server to test. If not specified, all Mailbox servers in the local Active Directory site are tested.

MonitoringContext

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The MonitoringContext parameter specifies whether additional information is returned to Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007. When Operations Manager 2007 executes the Test-EcpConnectivity cmdlet, it requires additional information to be returned. By setting this parameter to $true, you can see exactly what would be returned to Operations Manager 2007. This parameter is informational only and has no effect on Operations Manager 2007.

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 usually reset every 7 days. Use this parameter to force a password reset any time that a password reset is required for security reasons.

RSTEndpoint

Optional

System.String

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

TestType

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Monitoring.OwaConnectivityTestType

The TestType parameter determines whether the command tests internal or external URLs. Values are Internal and External.

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 30 seconds. You must specify a time-out value greater than 0 seconds and less than 1 hour (3,600 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 specifies whether SSL certificate validation failures are reported. If the TrustAnySSLCertificate parameter is used, SSL certificate validation failures aren't reported. This is useful for testing internal URLs because Internet Information Services (IIS) doesn't support assigning multiple certificates for a single virtual directory. If a directory has different URLs for internal and external access and has a certificate, that certificate is usually for the external URL. This parameter lets the task check an internal URL without generating an error when the certificate doesn't match the URL.

VirtualDirectoryName

Optional

System.String

The VirtualDirectoryName parameter specifies the name of the virtual directory to test on a particular Client Access server. If this parameter isn't included, all Exchange Control Panel virtual directories that support Exchange mailboxes are tested.

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.

To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.

To see the return types, which are also known as output types, that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Output Type field is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t return data.

This example tests user connectivity to the Exchange Control Panel on Server01.
