Hi Expert Team -

I’m looking for a script that can provide me with Exchange Mailbox mount points disk space info. This is what I’m looking for:

The script should have the following
1.      Should only look for the MBX severs in our site
2.      It should look for all mount points on each MBX server
3.      Each server should be on its own excel tab
4.      Plus, the following headers for each tab

Headers:
Volume Name – Capacity GB – Free Space GB - %Free

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
JohnM

next question is your mount on a disk or a volume?

do you seperate your log file to database ?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

HI Jian An Lim -

Thanks for the quick response.

Our Exchange has a dedicated storage array. LUNs are presented to the vplex (storage virtualization) and then to the Exchange hosts. So to the Exchange servers, there are multiple physical disks. So DBs and Logs are on separate disks.
Hopes this helps....

I have an old script which I was using to report all database and log volumes. Made some changes based on your requirement, check and see if it works for you..
#load Exchange 2010 PSSnapin
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Powershell.Support
Add-PSSnapin  Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
#Function to get database and volume information
Function Get-WmiVolumeFromPath([string] $FilePath, [string] $Server) {
    do {
        $FilePath = $FilePath.Substring(0, $FilePath.LastIndexOf('\') + 1)
        $wmiFilter = ('Name="{0}"' -f $FilePath.Replace("\", "\\"))
        $volume = get-wmiobject -class win32_volume -computername $Server -filter $wmiFilter
        $FilePath = $FilePath.Substring(0, $FilePath.LastIndexOf('\'))
    } while ($volume -eq $null)
    return $volume 
}
#Get Server List
$Servers = Get-MailboxServer | Select -Exp Name
$Servers | % {
$Svr = $_
 #Get Mailbox Database
 $DBS = Get-MailboxDatabase -Server $Svr
	$DBS | % {
	$DB = $_.Name
	$LogPath = "$($_.LogFolderPath.pathname)\"
	$DBPath = "$($_.EdbFilePath.pathname)"
	#Get DB Volume
	Get-WmiVolumeFromPath $DBPath $Svr | Select *,@{N="Type";E={"Database"}},@{N="Database";E={$DB}}
	#Get Log Volume
	Get-WmiVolumeFromPath $LogPath $Svr | Select *,@{N="Type";E={"Log"}},@{N="Database";E={$DB}}
	} | %{
	#Create Output
	$TotSpace=[math]::Round(($_.Capacity/1GB),2)
	$FrSpace=[Math]::Round(($_.Freespace/1GB),2)
	$UsedSpace=[Math]::Round(($TotSpace - $FrSpace),2)
	$FreePercent = [Math]::Round((($FrSpace/$TotSpace)*100),2)
	New-Object PSObject -Property @{
		Server = $_.__SERVER
		Database = $_.Database
		Type = $_.Type
		Volume = $_.Caption
		"Total Capacity GB" = $TotSpace
		"Used Capacity GB" = $UsedSpace
		"Free Space GB" = $FrSpace
		"Free Space %" = $FreePercent
	}
 }
} | Select Server,Database,Type,Volume,T*B,U*B,F*B,"F*%" |
Export-Csv C:\Temp\ServerReport.csv -nti

The script should provide required details about exchange log volumes.
