Invoke-MonitoringProbe

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange. Use the Invoke-MonitoringProbe cmdlet to run a Managed Availability probe on a selected server. This cmdlet cannot be used to run every Managed Availability probe. Only some probes (mainly the deep test probes) can be run manually using this cmdlet. Probes that cannot be run with this cmdlet will generate an error message when Invoke-MonitoringProbe is used to run them. For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/bb123552.aspx).
