Monitoring Exchange Server 2007 cluster through WMI ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need a way to get a 3rd party monitoring application to collect a metric with the current node info, so powershell is out of the equation (Get-ClusteredMailboxServerStatus -Identity ExcCluster01) .  Is there a wmi or perfmon counter to do that ?

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and later do not include WMI providers. You cannot use applications that use the Exchange 2003 WMI providers to monitor computers that are running Exchange 2007, 2010 or later. Microsoft Windows PowerShell commands that work with Exchange 2007 and later replace the WMI providers in Exchange 2003

    ----------Refer to <Migrating from WMI Providers>

    According to the reference above, it seems that WMI can’t be used on this task

  • Many thanks for the response, The reason why I am asking this question is that I needto monitor which Exchange Server node is currently active, I cannot run the above powershell script because it must be executed in the MBX server not from my laptop even with EMC installed.
