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 "Shell infrastructure permissions" section in the Exchange and Shell infrastructure permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Name parameter specifies the monitor identity.




The Repairing parameter specifies whether to set or clear the repairing property on a monitor.

The default value is $true.




The Server parameter specifies the Exchange server on which you want to run this command. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the server. For example:

  • Name

  • FQDN

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Exchange Legacy DN

If you don't use the Server parameter, the command is run on the local server.




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.




The TargetResource parameter specifies the target resource that you want to set the monitor on.




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.
