I am looking for an app or tool that will give a comprehensive server health check (OS, Hardware, Apps, etc.) on any Microsoft server (2003-present)

In particular I am looking for something that does Exchange & Terminal Services, but it could be most any Microsoft server based platform.

Any suggestions?

Are you looking for something free or paid?

You could give a try with SCOM (System Center Operations Manager), this is a Microsof software and can do what you want and more.

Let us know.

Free or paid, I am looking for something to run on a customers site to get server health info. In most cases SCOM would not be available so I am looking for that does not require a major install & set up.

With out tools like SCOM, Zenoss, Nagios or Cacti, I just can think to create a script to check event viewer events, and send the results to an email account.

Sorry for not could help more but all the tools I mention require installation and set up.

So please, Request Attention to see if any one knows an easy tool like the one you are looking for.

Regards.

Belarc is a great tool, but its only for personal use, you need a license to use it for any corporate work.

https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/ - this will test Exchange/Lync and Office 365.

As for the servers, MS has released a Best Practice Analyser for doing the basics depending on the server roles.  Any server version from 2008 onwards should have BPA built in to the Server Manager console under the Roles section.  Or download it below if missing and for 2003 server.
