Introducing Exchange Reports

It is mandatory on the part of an Exchange Administrator to be well-informed about every configuration on mailboxes, distribution groups in their Exchange Environment. Considering the huge volume of information to be tracked, this is easier said than done!

Exchange Reports with its built-in reports comes to your rescue!

This application requires .Net 4.0, Powershell 2.0 and Remote Powershell access to Exchange Server. It is tested on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 2008 R2.

Recovering a Failed Exchange 2013 Server

Exchange Server recovery is most critical task for Exchange Admin, we need to prepare for any type of disaster recovery

Usually  when there is natural disaster or flood on your current datacenter site you may lose all the servers. So it really important thing to have recovery plan from any kind of situation to recover our servers.

In this blog I’m recovering a lost exchange server 2013 on different hardware,

Exchange 2013 server can be recover by using the Setup /m:RecoverServer switch which rebuilds the Exchange server with the same name by using object information from Active directory.

We need to check the installation path of Exchange Server if we have installed it on different location then we need to use /Targetdir switch to specify the location

Open the ADSIT EDIT tool

Example:

Navigate to the following location: CN=Ex-15,CN=Servers,CN=First Administrative Group,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=First Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=test,CN=Com

Checked the MSExchInstall Path

In my case its default location C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15

The following task you need to perform for recovery exchange server

  • First we need to reset the computer account from AD
  • Deploy new operating system with windows updates
  • Assign same ip address
  • Join to domain with the same┬áname as before
  • Assign same drive letters on the server
  • Install pre-requisites which is required
  • We will use Setup ┬á┬á┬á┬á /m:RecoverServer mode installation
