Note:

Monitoring of Exchange Server is possible only if Applications Manager is running in a Windows System. Also, Exchange Server monitor will work only if WMI is enabled in the remote machine in which Exchange Server is running.

Exchange Monitoring now supports data collection in two ways :

  • WMI - For users who have not installed /don't require powershell

    In the new monitor page- Choose the WMI Mode of Monitoring

    Mailbox and Database Statistics for Mailbox Server Role is not available for this setting.

  • Powershell:

    In the new monitor page, Choose the Powershell Mode of Monitoring and provide the connectionURI.

    To use Powershell for datacollection make sure the proper steps have been followed to enable powershell remoting.
    If the user has not modified any ports or connectionURI, it need not be customized. Default value for connectionURI will be used.
