get-ExchangeServer -> where did the data come from? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi @all

    i have a Exchange installation with 2 CAS. One is together with some other roles installed and one is a dedicated CAS.

    When i am typing get-exchangeserver to the powershell, i get a list with these two and some others.

    My question is, where did these data come from?

    And how can i remove the dedicated CAS? This server is offline, but still appear i the list.

  • Hi

    The Get-ExchangeServer command retrieves the data directly from AD so if it is returning servers that you don't have it would indicate that Exchange was not uninstalled from those servers before they were removed.

    You can remove the missing servers using ADSIedit or just ignore those entries.

  • Just because the "dedicated CAS" is off-line doesn't mean it isn't still part of your Exchange organization.

    The information is found in the configuration naming context of the Active Directory.
