Exchange Server 2013 Message Tracking log Powershell ?

Last Modified: 2017-04-05
Hi All,

I've got 5x mailbox servers spread across different data centers.

Previously I used to able using my Powershell IDE from my laptop to get the Message Tracking log from ALL Exchange 2010 HubTransport server. But now I wonder what could be the change for Exchange Server 2013 ?

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://PRODHTCAS-02-VM/PowerShell/ -Authentication Kerberos
Import-PSSession $Session -AllowClobber
Import-Module ActiveDirectory -ErrorAction STOP

Get-TransportServer | Get-Messagetrackinglog -Sender "emite@domain.com" -Recipients "itoperat@domain.com" -EventID "RECEIVE" -Start "25/01/2017 9:00:00 AM" -End "25/03/2016 9:08:00 PM" | ft -wrap Timestamp, Source, Sender, Recipients, MessageSubject, TotalBytes | Out-GridView

Open in new window

Do I have to run that command above for each mailbox server now in 2013 ?

This is the error message I'm getting, I'm just copy pasting one erro message since it is repeated for the number of my mailbox server:
The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the command either because the command does not take pipeline input or the input and its properties do not match any of the parameters that take pipeline input.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (PRODMBX02-VM:PSObject) [Get-MessageTrackingLog], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : InputObjectNotBound,Get-MessageTrackingLog
    + PSComputerName        : PRODMBXCAS04-VM

Open in new window

Note: PRODMBXCAS04-VM is where I usually connect for PowerShell remoting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
