Test Mailbox Replication Service Health

Exchange 2010

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

The Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service (MRS) runs on Client Access servers. You can test MRS health to make sure that MRS is running and that it responds to a remote procedure call (RPC) ping check. Use this procedure to troubleshoot problems that occur when moving mailboxes.

Looking for other management tasks related to move requests? Check out Managing Move Requests.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Mailbox moves" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

You can't use the EMC to test MRS health.

This example tests the health of MRS on all Client Access servers.

Get-ClientAccessServer | Test-MRSHealth

This example tests the health of MRS on the Client Access server CAS01.

Test-MRSHealth -Identity CAS01

This example tests the health of MRS on the Client Access server CAS02 and also includes monitoring events and performance counters in the results. The results are then exported to the .xml file CAS02_MRSHealth.xml.

Test-MRSHealth -Identity CAS02 -MonitoringContext $true | Export-CliXml "C:\CAS02_MRSHealth.xml"

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Get-ClientAccessServer or Test-MRSHealth.
