  • Accessing Performance Counters in PowerShell

    Originally published June 28, 2007 It's just so darn easy! I needed to monitor something going on, on one of my servers. It was just a temporary need, so I didn't want to install a monitoring package (such as Servers Alive). What I needed to see is exposed as a performance counter (perfmon object...

  • Checking Server Availability in PowerShell

    Originally published April 19, 2007 So...if you want to find out if a server is “around” before you start doing things to it, what do you do? If you are working from your desktop, you probably will start with a “ping” and then perhaps a “telnet server smtp” - if it's an SMTP server or “telnet server...

  • More Exchange Message Tracking

    Originally published November 10, 2006 So, in today's earlier post, I talked about exporting the message tracking logs into XML and then using an XSL sheet to report on that data. What's the problem with that? Well, the ESM Message Tracking Center (MTC) will only export 1,000 entries - maximum...

  • Exchange Message Tracking

    Originally published November 10, 2006 The message tracking log files that Exchange 2003 generates contain very useful information, especially if “Enable subject logging and display” is enabled. See the image below: Note that the log files are kept, by default, in the folder C:\Program Files\ExchSrvr...

  • Displaying Security on Active Directory, Exchange, and Registry Objects

    Originally published July 19, 2006 A common request is “how do I determine what security applies to a given [user | mailbox | registry value]”? The attached script shows you how to do that. None of this is unique to me, I just put it together in a pretty little script. Most of the script can be found...

  • Utility Libraries for Exchange Scripting

    Originally published July 11, 2006 I write many many many Exchange scripts. There are some things that are common in Exchange script - you need to get mailbox sizes, or a list of all the servers in an administrative group, or a list of all Exchange servers, etc. So, I ended up encapsulating all of those...

  • Finding disk space used by Exchange

    Originally published July 11, 2006 I apologize for the long absence, but I've been tied up in Exchange 2007 testing and learning. If you haven't seen it yet - just wait. You'll be very impressed, especially from the administrator's perspective. Especially when used in concert with Outlook...

  • Finding Services Using non-System accounts

    Originally published March 23, 2006 I went into a new customer recently and found that they had about a gazillion standalone servers, all of which had the same administrator password, and they used the Administrator account to run some services. While there often seem to be good reasons for doing this...

  • Exchange 200x Catchall Script, Version 2

    Originally published December 28, 2005 (Note November 13, 2007: this works with Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003; but not Exchange 2007 and above.) I've been promising an update to my Exchange Catchall script, since almost the week it was first released. The number one request has always been for...

  • Converting an Escaped Hex String to a Regular Hexadecimal String

    Originally published November 2, 2005 I've shown a number of routines for dealing with hexadecimal numbers and byte arrays. One that I haven't yet shown is taking an escaped hex string and converting it to a regular hex string. An escaped hex string is kind of a bastardized format - it uses regular...
