Test-EcpConnectivity

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2012-09-17

Use the Test-EcpConnectivity cmdlet to verify that the Exchange Administration Center is running as expected.

WarningWarning:
The Exchange Control Panel (ECP) is the web-based user interface developed for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. The Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Administration Center cmdlets for virtual directory still use ECP in the name, and the ECP cmdlets can be used to manage Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2013 ECP virtual directories.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

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

This example tests user connectivity to the Exchange Administration Center on Server01.

Test-EcpConnectivity -ClientAccessServer Server01

The Test-EcpConnectivity cmdlet can be used to test Exchange Administration Center connectivity for all ECP 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 Administration Center 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 "Exchange Administration Center connectivity" entry in the Exchange and Shell Infrastructure 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 switch includes the associated monitoring events and performance counters in the results. You don't need to specify a value with this switch. Typically, you include the monitoring events and performance counters in the results when the output is passed to Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 or System Center 2012 - Operations Manager.

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 Secure Sockets Layer (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.

UserType

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Monitoring.DatacenterUserType

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

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.
