Im trying to create an exchange powershell script to run these three following commands to check my exchange server status every so often.


Test-ServiceHealth servername | ft Role,RequiredServicesRunning -auto

test-mapiconnectivity -server "servername"

test-mailflow servername -targetemailaddress test@testaccount.com

What would be the easiest way to code this via powershell into a csv file and then send to me it as an attachment via email.

Export all your tests out to your csv/s using: cmdlet | export-csv [-append](you can only use append if you have powershell 3.0 installed).  Rather than export-csv though you might be better off using "out-file -append" as the data returned from the three separate cmdlets will be formatted differently.  To "export-csv -append" to the same file all the data's headers would need to be the same.

Then build your email using the following:
$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
$msg.from = <from address>
$msg.subject = <subject>
$msg.body = <body>
$msg.to.add(<someone@email.com>)
$attachment = <path to attachment>
$msg.attachments.add($attachment)
$smtpServer = <SMTP server>
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer, <port(25)>)
$smtp.Send($msg)

Open in new window

For the health check report powershell script, how would i create a scheduled task to run this with my specific parameters in windows 2008 R2? Would i have to create a .bat file to launch the .ps1 script with the -server -sendmail parameters?
