Exch 2013: Get-ServerHealth cmdlet returns "Unknown" status for known good systems. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey folks,

    Brand spanking new implementation of Exch 2013, running the Get-ServerHealth & Get-HealthReport cmdlets to retrieve health stats...problem is the command just returns a bunch of "unknowns" as below.

    What gives?

    Yes, the "Microsoft Exchange Health Manager" service is started and the server is actively hosting Exch services ;)


    [PS] C:\WINDOWS\system32>Get-ServerHealth

    cmdlet Get-ServerHealth at command pipeline position 1
    Supply values for the following parameters:
    Identity: localhost

    Server          State           Name                 TargetResource       HealthSetName   AlertValue ServerComp
    ------          -----           ----                 --------------       -------------   ---------- ----------
    localhost       Unknown         Unknown                                   Unknown         Unknown    Unknown

  • Try Get-ServerHealth -Identity ServerName . There is no Identity called localhost in entire exchange commandlets as far as I can recall or unless I have missed to see something.

  • Hey Milind - thanks for the reply...

    I had specified "localhost" so I didn't expose the servername publically, when using the "Get-ServerHealth -Identity <ServerName>" syntax I get the same result, everything is listed as "unknown"...

  • Did you ever get this resolved?

    There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary, and those who don't.
