Help with Exchange Powershell

1. In Exchange 2007 environment, we have three regions - emea, apac, ltam.

EMEA Hub Transports servers are along the naming convention of hub-emea1, hub-emea2, hub-emea3 etc.

APAC Hubs are hub-apac1, hub-apac2 and so on.

Sometimes I just want to search on the EMEA or APAC or LTAM Hubs.

Does anyone know how I can run a Powershell along the lines of:

Get-transport server -[EMEA Hub Transport servers only] | Get-messagetrackinglog -sender ....etc etc

2. Sometimes, I'd like to view details of Exchange certificates on other servers, I've tried

Get-Exchangeserver -identity mailboxserver1 | get-exchangecertificate

Does anyone know the correct way?

3. Finally, for, say Exch1-SG1-IS1 database, is there an easy way to find out the count of mailboxes on there?

As far as I know this won't work on exchange 2007 you will need exchange 2010 for it

>> 3. Finally, for, say Exch1-SG1-IS1 database, is there an easy way to find out the count of mailboxes on there?

$mbx = get-mailbox -database Exch1-SG1-IS -resultsize unlimited
$mbx.count

Thanks Akhater.

Couple of follow up questions..

#1: Get-transport | ?{ $_.name -like "*emea*"} | Get-messagetrackinglog -sender

Excellent, thanks very much for this. I've also seen people use the word "where" when specifying servers such as hub-emea1, hub-emea2 ,etc. Do you know if it's possible in this case or is  ?{ $_.name -like "*emea*"}  the only way?

#3: >> 3. Finally, for, say Exch1-SG1-IS1 database, is there an easy way to find out the count of mailboxes on there?

$mbx = get-mailbox -database Exch1-SG1-IS -resultsize unlimited
$mbx.count

Sorry, I should have mentioned, our EMEA Mailbox servers are also EMEA-Exch1, EMEA-Exch2, etc. Do you know how I would amend you query so I am only returned results for EMEA Mailbox servers?

#1

? is nothing by  a shortcut to where

#1: Get-transport | where { $_.name -like "*emea*"} | Get-messagetrackinglog -sender

is exactly the same

#3 I am not sure I understood your question you want the count of all mailboxes on emea-exch1 or emea-exch2 ? that's it ?

Hi Akhater

#1 Ah makes sense :) Thanks for clarifying that!

#3: I would like a count of mailboxes on all stores for servers starting with emea-exch* please?

Oki this should do it (sorry from the top of my head i can't test right now but it should be fine)

$servers = get-MailboxServer | ? { $_.name -like "emea-exch*"}
$mbxes = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited | ? {$servers -contains $_.servername}
$mbxes.count
0
