Why don't you want to touch Exchange? ;)

You can use remote powershell from a workstation and check that way. Even if there is a registry entry, you still will be "touching" the server.


It is much handy when developing to get info just from some file or reg key, than working with power shell.

is it possible to do this with eseutil?

if I use powershell?

what the commands will be for Exchange 2007 and 2010?
what about 2003?

Thank you in advance!
For Exchange 2007 / 2010, the powershell command to list all databases with circular logging enabled is: get-mailboxdatabase |where {$_.CircularLoggingEnabled -eq $true}

For Exchange 2003, you will have to develop either a custom app or a vb script to query the databases via CDOEXM - refer to the Exchange server cookbook by Paul Robichaux :
