Powershell command to check exchange server health and send to me

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?
