Get-ExchangeServerPLUS.ps1 v1.14

Damm, has this script grown up recently.

In a nut shell, this is the daddy of all scripts and gathers chunks of information from the Exchange Organisation and each Exchange Server by using a mixture of WMI, .Net and Exchange 2007 Powershell commands.

The script can be run for just one server, by appending an server name to the command or with no parameter, in which case it will enumerate all Exchange Servers from the Active Directory using the Exchange Powershell command Get-ExchangeServer

Typical Syntax

It now exports a load of data to and XML file and a smaller subset to the UI.  It seems to me to be quicker and I am still adding stuff as I go.

I typically schedule this script to run once a week and email me, so I put a wrapper around the script to create a transcript and email.  Check out the attachment, I have included all the bits & Bobs
