Test-MRSHealth – 5 Of 28 Test Cmdlets In Exchange 2010 SP1…

Share & Comment

Test-MRSHealth is one of the simplest test cmdlets in Exchange 2010. It checks three things – whether the mailbox replication service is running on the server, whether the service is responding to an RPC ping and whether the replication service is scanning database queues for jobs.

The Exchange Mailbox Replication service runs on all CAS servers. It is responsible for all mailbox moves, import and export requests.

Run Test-MRSHealth to find the status of the replication service.


If you want to check the status for all CAS servers, run Get-ClientAccessServer | Test-MRSHealth

Part one, two, three and four of the series, if you haven’t already read it.

    When I run test-mrshealth on one of my Exchange servers (mailbox, hub and cas role) it fails on the third check, queuescancheck everytime. The health check passes on the other 2 checks, servicecheck and RPCPingcheck. Any why it’s failing on this server while it passes on the other servers? Please help.
