Test-MRSHealth

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2014-05-05

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2013.

Use the Test-MRSHealth cmdlet to test the health of an instance of the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service.

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

Test-MRSHealth [-Identity <ServerIdParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-MaxQueueScanAgeSeconds <Int32>] [-MonitoringContext <$true | $false>] [-MRSProxyCredentials <PSCredential>] [-MRSProxyServer <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example tests the health of the Mailbox Replication service on all Mailbox servers.

Get-MailboxServer | Test-MRSHealth

This example tests the health of the Mailbox Replication service on the Mailbox server named MBX01.

Test-MRSHealth MBX01

The Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service runs on Mailbox servers. This command ensures that the Mailbox Replication service is running and that it responds to a remote procedure call (RPC) ping check.

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 "Mailbox move and migration permissions" section in the Recipients Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

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.

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the server on which to perform the health test. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the server. For example:

  • Name

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • ExchangeLegacyDN

  • GUID

If you don't specify the server, the command runs on the local server.

MaxQueueScanAgeSeconds

Optional

System.Int32

The MaxQueueScanAgeSeconds parameter specifies the threshold for the last queue scan property. If the time stamp on the last queue scan property is older than the value specified by this parameter, an error event is created that shows the Mailbox Replication service isn't scanning mailbox database queues. The default value is 1800 seconds (30 minutes).

MonitoringContext

Optional

System.Boolean

The MonitoringContext parameter includes or excludes the associated monitoring events and performance counters in the results. Valid input for this parameter is $true or $false. The default value is $false. If you specify the value $true, the monitoring events and performance counters are included in the command results. 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.

MRSProxyCredentials

Optional

System.Management.Automation.PSCredential

The MRSProxyCredentials parameter specifies the credentials that are required for the MRSProxyPingCheck test on the server that's specified by the MRSProxyServer parameter.

This parameter requires the creation and passing of a credential object. This credential object is created by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. For more information, see Get-Credential.

MRSProxyServer

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The MRSProxyServer parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the target server for the MRSProxyPingCheck test.

The Microsoft Replication proxy service is part of the Mailbox Replication service, and is used for remote mailbox moves. However, the Mailbox Replication proxy service communicates only with the Mailbox Replication service on another server. You can test the Mailbox Replication proxy service in the following ways:

  • If you specify an MRSProxyServer value, and you specify the source server by using the Identity parameter, the test is performed between that server and the target server specified by the MRSProxyServer parameter.

  • If you specify an MRSProxyServer value, and you don't specify a source server by using the Identity parameter, the test is performed between the local server and the target server specified by the MRSProxyServer parameter.

  • If you don't specify an MRSProxyServer value or an Identity value, the test is performed between the Mailbox Replication service and the Mailbox Replication proxy service on the local 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.
