Powershell: Install Exchange

Another exchange related function (who could guess!) I recently finished is this one. It will download the exchange setup file and install the role you require to be installed. You have to provide the role you want to install, the exchange version and the organization name. Works for 2010 and 2013. Might update this in the future to include RU installations.

Powershell: Prepare for an Exchange installation

I’m not taking full credit for this one. This script was originally made by someone else (and as soon as I find the link to that post I’ll put it up!) to prepare for Exchange 2010 on windows 2008 and 2008 R2.

Disabling IPv6
I often see that people want to disable IP v6 on their windows machine but instead of disabling it completly they uncheck the box on the network adaptor. Unfortunately that is not enough.... In general I would say "leave it enabled" but there are always specific cases where you want to disable it. The only products I would strongly advise against disabling it are the SBS products. For some reason disabling IP v6 on these boxes can cause massive issues in communications between the different applications ......

Troubleshooting exchange web services
Since exchange versions from 2007 and up put more emphasis on the webservices for use in the distribution of the offline address book, out of office, the scheduling assistant and autodiscover (a.k.a outlook connectivity to exchange) the correct configuration of the virtual directories and IIS components is the main key to a healthy exchange environment. It is for this reason that I have compiled a quick reference as to how these components should be configured in order to function properly and so ......

Recovery storage groups
As you might, or not, be aware off there is no item level based recovery in Exchange that is natively supported by Microsoft. So to perform recoveries we need the recovery storage group (captain obvious). The purpose of this is to mount the database you want to recover from on the Exchange server and use exmerge to merge the data you are recovering into the active database. An RSG will not be accessible to users and you can only create one at a time. Exchange 2003: 1. Open Exchange system manager ......

The information store service is stopped and will not start
Troubleshooting the information store service can be straightforward yet immensely complicated if you don’t know what is going on. For this reason I think it is important to know that there are 3 likely culprits that will cause your information store service to go down and refuse to come up: · Database problems · Active directory problems · Antivirus software Trying to work out which is the culprit can be hard, elimination is probably the easiest way to work through this… So let us get started! 1. ......
