Description

The Test-MbamWebApplication cmdlet checks server prerequisites and validates parameter values for a Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) web application feature. The cmdlet validates the current computer for one of the following web applications:

Examples

Example 1: Check prerequisites and validate parameters for Administration and Monitoring Website

PS C:\> Test-MbamWebApplication -AdministrationPortal -ComplianceAndAuditDBConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Compliance Status" -RecoveryDBConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Recovery and Hardware" -AdvancedHelpdeskAccessGroup "Contoso\AdvancedUserGroup" -HelpdeskAccessGroup "Contoso\StandardUserGroup" -ReportsReadOnlyAccessGroup "Contoso\ReportUserGroup" -ReportUrl "https://ContosoReportServer/ReportServer" -Port 443 -WebServiceApplicationPoolCredential (Get-Credential) -Certificate (dir cert:\LocalComputer\My\E2A7EA5533890D6567E40DFC46F53B3D31D6B689)
True

This command checks the prerequisites and validates parameter values to enable the Administration and Monitoring Website web application on the current server. The command tests a configuration of the website that uses the Compliance and Audit Database and the Recovery Database present in the ContosoDatabaseServer and the reports present in the ContosoReportsServer.

Example 2: Check prerequisites and validate parameters for Self-Service Portal

PS C:\> Test-MbamWebApplication -SelfServicePortal -ComplianceAndAuditDBConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Compliance Status" -RecoveryDBConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Recovery and Hardware" -Port 443 -WebServiceApplicationPoolCredential (Get-Credential) -Certificate (dir cert:\LocalComputer\My\E2A7EA5533890D6567E40DFC46F53B3D31D6B689) 
True

This command checks the prerequisites and validates parameter values to enable the Self-Service Portal web application on this server. The command checks the configuration of the Portal that uses the Compliance and Audit Database and the Recovery Database present in the ContosoDatabaseServer.

Example 3: Check prerequisites and validate parameters for Agent Services

PS C:\> Test-MbamWebApplication -AgentService -ComplianceAndAuditDBConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Compliance Status" -RecoveryDBConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Recovery and Hardware" -Port 443 -WebServiceApplicationPoolCredential (Get-Credential) -Certificate (dir cert:\LocalComputer\My\E2A7EA5533890D6567E40DFC46F53B3D31D6B689) 
True

This command checks the prerequisites and validates parameter values to enable the Agent Services feature on the current server. The cmdlets verify a configuration of services that uses the Compliance and Audit Database and the Recovery Database present in the ContosoDatabaseServer.

Example 4: View detailed information

PS C:\> Test-MbamWebApplication -AdministrationPortal -ComplianceAndAuditDBConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Compliance Status" -RecoveryDBConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Recovery and Hardware" -AdvancedHelpdeskAccessGroup "Contoso\AdvancedUserGroup" -HelpdeskAccessGroup "Contoso\StandardUserGroup" -ReportsReadOnlyAccessGroup "Contoso\ReportUserGroup" -ReportUrl "https://ContosoReportServer/ReportServer" -Port 443 -WebServiceApplicationPoolCredential (Get-Credential) -Certificate (dir cert:\LocalComputer\My\E2A7EA5533890D6567E40DFC46F53B3D31D6B689) -Detailed
Type    Message
----    -------
Error   Parameter "ComplianceAndAuditDBConnectionString" using value "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=ContosoDatabaseServer;Initial Catalog=MBAM Compliance Status" is ...
Warning The application pool credential has a password that is set to expire.
Warning The application pool credential has administrator rights.
Warning Server communications have been configured without a certificate, which is not a secure configuration.
False

This command checks the prerequisites and validates parameter values to enable the Administration and Monitoring Website on this server. The command specifies the Detailed parameter, and, therefore, displays detailed information.
