[Exchange 2007/2010] How to run "get-transportagent" remotely for multiple 100 servers?

How to run "get-transportagent" remotely for multiple 100 servers?
Looks easy but totally not.
I need to check get-transportagent result for over 100 servers from a management server.

busbar,

for example please see below web site:

> Anti malware protection registers an agent and can be easily seen using Get-TransportAgent

http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2008/06/23/3405642.aspx
>Get-TransportAgent cmdlet is a per Transport server configuration setting. This example has 3 of the agents disabled. So this will only affect the Hub this is configured on:

If AntiMalware (or any) agent is installed on the particular hub server, the get-transportagent command on that hub server will return specific Identity.

In my case, I need to run the command to checkwhat agents are running on which hub servers.

Thanks.

by default when you run this command it displays a summary list of all transport agents installed on all Exchange servers in your organization.

busbar,

Thanks but they show different result as hub transport servers in my organization have different agent setup. I need to run it individually on 100 servers.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

get-transportagent | FL

THis will will return a list and in structured format, am I following correctly ?!

busbar,
No, you're not following my question.

1. I have 100 Hub transport servers
2. I need to see "get-transportagent" result on each individual servers because each server shows different result.

"get-transportagent" doesn't have "-server" option. I tried invoke-command but not worked for exchangeshell.

I don't want to run the command by logging on via RDP to 100 servers.

that is what I am telling you, when you run the command it will return all the agents installed on all the servers in your organization, you don't need to use -server switch

Sorry it returns the config on all servers for Exchange 2013, I mixed stuff, can you verify that it returns all the config from all servers in the org in 2010

Hi Kim,
I don't have Exchange 2010 in my lab, but as it looks it does return the config per server.

In this case you will need to make a script to loop through your servers, connect remotely and run the command.

create a csv with a header serverfqdn server names and then try:
Import-CSV CreateRecipients.csv | ForEach {
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://$_.serverfqdn/PowerShell/ -Authentication Kerberos
Import-PSSession $Session
get-transportaget | export-csv $_.serverfqdn.csv
}
This will loop through the CSV file, read the server, connect remotely run the powershell and export the output to csv file with the server name, I created this script on the fly so you need to test it, report if any errors (which I believe you will receive).

The command provided was reasonable one.
