Exchange 2010 PowerShell Cmdlets

A List of PowerShell Commands for Exchange 2010Exchange 2010 PowerShell Cmdlet List

There are two difficulties when you try to change settings via the built-in Exchange 2010 console.

Firstly there can be confusion from too many drilldowns before you reach the target menu.  Secondly, some settings are just not available in the GUI, thus you need to execute a PowerShell command.

Topics for Exchange 2010 PowerShell Commands

 ♠

Simple PowerShell Example - Exchange Server Roles

The purpose of this simple illustration is to list all the roles of an Exchange Server.  Observe the simplicity of PowerShell's two-part instruction, the verb 'Get' coupled to the noun 'ExchangeServer'.

# Example:  PowerShell Exchange 2010 Command
Get-ExchangeServer

Note 1:   You could append -status to the above command.

Another Simple PowerShell Command

#Exchange 2010 PowerShell Script
Get-Mailbox -Identity YourPerson

Note 2:   You can also try the format: domain\user instead of 'YourPerson'.

Research PowerShell's Exchange Cmdlets

Use PowerShell's own Get-Command to list all cmdlets containing 'Exchange'.

# PowerShell cmdlets containing Exchange
Get-Command *Exchange*

Note 3:   Actually, *Exchange* doesn't unearth many cmdlets, thus you could substitute *Mail* or *Address* in the above example.

Discover Parameters for Your Exchange 2010 Command

Once you find a particular cmdlet that interests you, the next step is to see if it has any useful parameters.  Again use PowerShell's own Get-Help cmdlet.

# Parameters for Exchange 2010 PowerShell Commands
Get-Help Get-ExchangeServer -full

Note 4:  I always append -full because I like to see Microsoft's PowerShell examples.  Incidentally, this is how I knew there was a parameter called -status.

See more examples of using simple PowerShell commands for Exchange Server.

Guy Recommends:  A Free Trial of the Network Performance Monitor (NPM)Review of Orion NPM v11

SolarWinds' Network Performance Monitor will help you discover what's happening on your network.  This utility will also guide you through troubleshooting; the dashboard will indicate whether the root cause is a broken link, faulty equipment or resource overload.

What I like best is the way NPM suggests solutions to network problems.  Its also has the ability to monitor the health of individual VMware virtual machines.  If you are interested in troubleshooting, and creating network maps, then I recommend that you try NPM now.

PowerShell Exchange 2010 AddressList Cmdlets

I have included some of the many PowerShell Exchange 2010 cmdlets, here are the three most important nouns for investigating Exchange address lists.

  • AddressList
  • GlobalAddressList
  • AddressListPaging

Combine with these PowerShell verbs:  Get, Set, New and Remove, for example,

  • New-AddressList
  • Get-AddressListPaging
  • Set-GlobalAddressList

    ®

PowerShell Exchange Mailbox Cmdlets

  • StoreUsageStatistics
  • MailboxDatabase
  • StoreMailbox
  • Database
  • MailboxServer

As usual, always try the 'Get' verb, but if you know what you are doing then experiment with:  Mount, Dismount, Clean or even Remove.

Mailbox Policy Cmdlets

You can also use PowerShell cmdlets to modify the various email policies, the key nouns are:  InboxRule and EmailAddressPolicy.

Monitoring Exchange 2010 High Availability

Here are PowerShell commands for clustered configurations.

Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus

This PowerShell command displays the status of all your databases on all your Exchange mailbox servers.

Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus -server Exchsrv

Check to see that the database is mounted and healthy.

Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus -identity DB1\Exchsrv

Note 5:  The -identity parameter is frequently used in conjunction with Exchange cmdlets.

Guy Recommends: Free WMI Monitor for PowerShellSolarwinds Free WMI Monitor for PowerShell

Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is one of the hidden treasures of Microsoft's operating systems.  Fortunately, SolarWinds have created a Free WMI Monitor so that you can discover these gems of performance information, and thus improve your PowerShell scripts.

Take the guess work out of which WMI counters to use when scripting the operating system, Active Directory, or Exchange Server. Give this WMI monitor a try - it's free.

Test-ReplicationHealth

Here is a PowerShell Cmdlet which checks that mailboxes in a cluster are replicating correctly.

Test-ReplicationHealth Exchsrv

Digression:  Other PowerShell Commands for Exchange 2010 Containing 'Test'

Do you remember how to research for more cmdlets with Get-Command?  Well try:

Get-Command -verb Test

# Test-MailFlow
# Test-OutlookWebServices
# Test-ServiceHealth
# Test-SystemHealth

List of PowerShell Cmdlets for Exchange 2010

How to enumerate PowerShell cmdlets for Exchange:

Note 2:  Substitute -Like "*exch*" for -Match "Exchange".

Guy Recommends: WMI Monitor and It's Free!Solarwinds Free WMI Monitor

Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is one of the hidden treasures of Microsoft's operating systems.  Fortunately, SolarWinds have created a Free WMI Monitor so that you can discover these gems of performance information, and thus improve your scripts.

Take the guess work out of which WMI counters to use when scripting the operating system, Active Directory or Exchange Server. Give this WMI monitor a try - it's free.

PowerShell Assumptions

Because I cover PowerShell basics elsewhere, I am assuming that you have a working knowledge of the cmdlets and how to research parameters with Get-Member.  Incidentally, I use PowerShell 2.0s graphical ISE, rather than the command line version.

PowerShell Pre-requisites and Checklist

In the case of Windows 7 and later, you don't need to download any extra files, just: 'Add Feature' --> Windows PowerShell.  However, for older operating systems, there are different versions of PowerShell for XP, Windows Server 2003 and Vista.  For such legacy systems only, you need to download PowerShell from Microsoft's site.

Once you have installed PowerShell 2.0 or later, I recommend choosing the ISE (Integrated Scripting Engine) version, it will save buying a text editor.

Summary of PowerShell Exchange 2010 Cmdlets

It can be frustrating to configure certain settings using the Exchange 2010 console.  Choosing from a list of PowerShell commands helps to reduce the long drill-downs and to find settings not available in the Exchange Manger GUI.  Perhaps the best reason of all is that wanting to configure Exchange effieciently will be the spring-board to learning more about PowerShell.
