Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2016

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2016.

Use the Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride cmdlet to override the thresholds and parameters of the managed availability probes, monitors, and responders on all Exchange 2013 or later servers in your organization. The cmdlet enables monitoring changes and threshold tuning to the environment.

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

Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride [-Duration <EnhancedTimeSpan>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride -ApplyVersion <Version> <COMMON PARAMETERS>
COMMON PARAMETERS: -Identity <String> -ItemType <Probe | Monitor | Responder | Maintenance> -PropertyName <String> -PropertyValue <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example adds a global monitoring override that disables the OnPremisesInboundProxy probe for 30 days. Note that the value of Identity is case-sensitive.

Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride -Identity "FrontendTransport\OnPremisesInboundProxy" -PropertyName Enabled -PropertyValue 0 -Duration 30.00:00:00 -ItemType Probe

This example adds a global monitoring override that disables the StorageLogicalDriveSpaceEscalate responder for all Exchange 2016 servers running version 15.01.0225.0422. Note that the value of Identity is case-sensitive.

Add-GlobalMonitoringOverride -Identity "MailboxSpace\StorageLogicalDriveSpaceEscalate" -PropertyName Enabled -PropertyValue 0 -ItemType Responder -ApplyVersion "15.01.0225.0422"

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 infrastructure and PowerShell permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

ApplyVersion

Required

System.Version

The ApplyVersion parameter specifies the version of Exchange that gets the override. If an Exchange server is older or newer than the version you specify, the override isn't applied to the server. Typically, you increase the Exchange version by applying Cumulative Updates or Service Packs.

Valid input for this parameter is an Exchange version number in the format 15.0x.xxxx.xxx.

You can't use this parameter with the Duration parameter.

Identity

Required

System.String

The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the probe, monitor, or responder. This parameter uses the syntax <HealthSetName>\<MonitoringItemName>[\<TargetResource>]. Note that the values are case sensitive. For example, use "AD\ActiveDirectoryConnectivityServerReboot", not "ad\activedirectoryconnectivityserverreboot".

ItemType

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MonitoringItemTypeEnum

The ItemType parameter specifies the item type for the property that you want to override. Valid values are:

  • Probe

  • Monitor

  • Responder

PropertyName

Required

System.String

The PropertyName parameter specifies the property that you want to override.

PropertyValue

Required

System.String

The PropertyValue parameter specifies the new value for the property that you want to override.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, dc01.contoso.com.

The DomainController parameter isn't supported on Edge Transport servers. An Edge Transport server uses the local instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) to read and write data.

Duration

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.EnhancedTimeSpan

The Duration parameter specifies the length of time that the override is active.

To specify a value, enter it as a time span: dd.hh:mm:ss where dd = days, hh = hours, mm = minutes, and ss = seconds.

For example, 30.10:00:00 specifies 30 days and 10 hours.

You can't use this parameter with the ApplyVersion parameter.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch simulates the actions of the command. You can use this switch to view the changes that would occur without actually applying those changes. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.
