The Test-ReplicationHealth cmdlet is used to monitor the mailbox replication process. In environments with database availability groups (DAGs), you can use this cmdlet to track failures in the replication process and mend them at the earliest.
How to use the Test-ReplicationHealth cmdlet:
Test-ReplicationHealth [[-Identity] <ServerIdParameter>] [-ActiveDirectoryTimeout <Int32>] [-Confirm] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-MonitoringContext <Boolean>] [-OutputObjects] [-TransientEventSuppressionWindow <UInt32>] [-WhatIf] [-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup <DatabaseAvailabilityGroupIdParameter>] [<CommonParameters>]
Eg. Test-ReplicationHealth -Identity ExchSer1
This cmdlet can be used to monitor and verify the status of replication of a specific mailbox server (here in this case ExchSer1) in the configured DAG.
What if you have to check the replication status of hundreds of mailbox servers every day? That's where you need Exchange Reporter Plus, an Exchange reporting, change auditing and monitoring tool.
