Patching Exchange servers
Posted on 2011-02-11
I am due to install OS patches on some Exchange servers next week: Exchange 2007 SP2 running on Winwdows 2008 Server OS.
The server types are Mailbox, Hub and CAS.
Once the servers have been patched and rebooted I would like some way of confirming that Exchange functionality is working.
Test-ServiceHealth is the common test and was thinking of running Test-MAPIConnectivity on the Mailbox role servers, but what about the CAS and Hub? Can anyone recommend any tests?
For instance for:
Hub: Confirm that messages can be passed through it
CAS: Confirm OWA, Auto-discover
Does anyone know any other services that run from these servers and also how to test?
