Folks,

I need your help and suggestion in modifying the below Powershell script so that it can be used against Exchange Server 2010:

function Get-ExchangeWhiteSpace {
      param(
        $ComputerName = $(throw "ComputerName cannot be empty.")
      )

      # Convert Dates to WMI CIM dates
            $tc = [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeconverter]
            $Start = $tc::ToDmtfDateTime( (Get-Date).AddDays(-10).Date )
            $End = $tc::ToDmtfDateTime( (Get-Date).Date)

      # Create two calculated properties for InsertionStrings values
            $DB = @{Name="DB";Expression={$_.InsertionStrings[1]}}
            $FreeMB = @{Name="FreeMB";Expression={[int]$_.InsertionStrings[0]}}

      Get-WMIObject Win32_NTLogEvent -ComputerName $ComputerName -Filter "LogFile='Application' AND EventCode=1221 AND TimeWritten>='$Start' AND TimeWritten<='$End'" |
        Select-Object ComputerName,$DB,$FreeMB, @{Name="TimeWritten"; Expression = {$_.ConvertToDateTime($_.TimeWritten )}} |
              Group-Object ComputerName, DB |
              % { $_.Group | Sort-Object TimeWritten -Descending | select -first 1 } | Sort-Object FreeMB -Descending
}

Get-ExchangeWhiteSpace -ComputerName PRODMAILBOX02-VM | ft -AutoSize

The above script works with no issues in Exchange Server 2007 but not in 2010.

Thanks,

With Exchange 2010 whitespace is not calculated using any events. Its extracted from a command itself..just a single command.

Get-MailboxServer servername | Get-MailboxDatabase | ft Name,AvailableNewMailboxSpace

Thanks Rajitha,

I'm not sure what happened to my Exchange Server 2010, but somehow by executing the Full List option as per below:

Get-MailboxServer | Get-MailboxDatabase | fl

Open in new window


The following attributes value is empty:

DatabaseSize                                 : 
AvailableNewMailboxSpace                     : 

Open in new window

Hey ITSystemEngineer,

You are on SP2. And I just confirmed this works on SP1 as well in my lab.

Try the following command. Its missing the -Status switch.

Get-MailboxServer servername | Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | ft Name,AvailableNewMailboxSpace

Thanks !
I didn't know if the new Exchange Server 2010 requires the Server name or additional parameter "-Status" to populate the attributes.
