Check if requested Exchange-services are running

Published by TheBlogger on

Did you ever receive word from your users telling you their mails don’t get out, or no mails are coming in? Outlook is working, so must be something else, right? Well, might as well be a service (e.g. TransportService) that stopped working for whatever reason. But better to know before your users start complaining!

Here’s a Powershell script that will send you an email whenever an Exchange requested service stops working. The script is to be scheduled in TaskMgr, it’s up to you how often you want to check the status of the services.

It will give you as an administrator a tool to receive a message when a requested Exchange-service (or other service, if you adjust the script) stops working, so you can quickly react on this.
