Description

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

Add-ServerMonitoringOverride -Identity "AD\ActiveDirectoryConnectivityConfigDCServerReboot" -Server EXCH03 -ItemType Responder -PropertyName Enabled -PropertyValue 0 -Duration 20.00:00:00

This example adds a server monitoring override that disables the responder ActiveDirectoryConnectivityConfigDCServerReboot on the server named EXCH03 for 20 days. Note that the value of Identity is case-sensitive.

Required Parameters

-ApplyVersion

The ApplyVersion parameter specifies the version of Exchange that gets the override. If you update Exchange to a newer version (for example, you apply a Cumulative Update or Service Pack), the override is no longer applied to the server.

Valid input for this parameter is an Exchange version number in the format 15.01.xxxx.xxx.

You can't use this parameter with the Duration parameter.

Type:Version
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the monitoring item that you want to override. This parameter uses the syntax <HealthSet>\<MonitoringItemName>[\<TargetResource>]. Note that the values are case sensitive. For example, use "AD\ActiveDirectoryConnectivityConfigDCServerReboot", not "ad\activedirectoryconnectivityconfigdcserverreboot".

You can use Get-ServerHealth to find the correct object for the monitoring item you want to override.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-ItemType

The ItemType parameter specifies the server item type for the property that you want to override. Valid value are:

  • Probe

  • Monitor

  • Responder

Type:Probe | Monitor | Responder | Maintenance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-PropertyName

The PropertyName parameter specifies the server property that you want to override.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-PropertyValue

The PropertyValue parameter specifies the new value for the server property that you want to override.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-Server

The Server parameter specifies the Exchange server where you want to add the monitoring override. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the server. For example:

  • Name

  • FQDN

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Exchange Legacy DN

You can't use this parameter to configure other Edge Transport servers remotely.

Type:ServerIdParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-Duration

The Duration parameter specifies the length of time that the override is active.

To specify a value, enter it as a time span: dd.hh:mm:ss where dd = days, hh = hours, mm = minutes and ss = seconds.

For example, 30.10:00:00 specifies 30 days and 10 hours.

You can't use this parameter with the ApplyVersion parameter.

Type:EnhancedTimeSpan
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-WhatIf

The WhatIf switch simulates the actions of the command. You can use this switch to view the changes that would occur without actually applying those changes. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
