Hi guys,

I want to query some information from Exchange and IIS using any form of script …may be WMI or VB …here is the attribute I want to read..

Exchange…

Store group settings…

Name
Policy applied
File path for the Database


Storage groups…

Name
Transaction log file location
System path location
Attributes we set using ADSI edit like “msExchESEParamLogBuffers”

In IIS all the settings like whatever we manually set using “Internet service Manger”
And properties for both server & sites Etc…

You can use windows scripting host, vb, vb.net etc... which language are you comfortable in... any of these can query both WMI and AD for the information you require. I prefer VB.net. Are you actually looking for the code to query everything above?

Yup ..I am aware that I can do using these.

I am looking for the codes. Or some information like how to query....
Likle WMI classes for exchange and IIS  for the said values..etc..I tried WMI for Operating systems with scriptomatic tools and that really helped me a lot for OS related query. But now i am looking for exchange and other setting.


Regards

Scriptomatic is fine for WMI, I am not sure of the IIS and exchange specific. I often use VB.NET and the DirectorySearcher function to manipulate and search active directory. I really can't help you much with the details, but no one else is responding to the post, I would try posting a link from the VB or scripting section to this question.

Here is a link to a script to pull mailbox sizes from Exchange, it is not the correct WMI objects, but it will show you how to attach to the Exchange Server and query for information, I am sure you can find the objects and swap them out.

Well, grasping at straws a little bit, until someone a lot wiser than me comes along. Here is an interesting article at microsoft which refers to the WMI classes including storage groups etc. Might be a big help.

Can you use VB or VB.NET, if so then you can add the "cdoexm.dll" to your project and you will have all of the Exchange System Administrator Functions available to you. The majority of your Exchange stuff could be accessed, viewed and manipulated using this library. Between this and active directory I believe I could access every single Exchange object. I would do not know, however, whether I could do this with vb script. :(
