Setting Exchange Server Properties

Setting Properties for an Exchange Server

Use the Exchange Server Properties to set the defaults for your Exchange servers. You use the property tabs to specify the server-specific properties, such as the location of the tracking log share and delivery time thresholds.

1
Expand the Exchange Organizations node in the treeview and select an Exchange organization.

Using the Exchange Server properties tabs you can perform the following tasks:

Assigning a Server Role for Reports

In Microsoft Exchange, server roles are used to identify the primary function of the server. The server role indicates the services that the server provides to the network. Different Exchange servers generate different traffic patterns due to their specified role.

In MessageStats, you can use the Server Roles tab to specify a role that can be used to group servers in reports. You can filter or group servers according to the server role. Thus, report content is not skewed by a single high-volume server when the remainder of the servers have a lower volume of traffic.

For a single server, the assigned server role appears in the list. If you have selected multiple servers, the server role list is displayed only if all the selected servers have exactly the same role.

MessageStats retrieves the server role for the server from Active Directory and assigns the same server role in MessageStats. The server role is displayed in the Discovered Server Roles box. You cannot remove the server role value for a “discovered” server role.

You can add server roles to any Exchange server. You can remove these assigned server roles.

You can create additional server roles using the Custom Server Roles property tab under the Configuration node. For more information, see Creating Server Roles for Exchange .

Select the Server Roles tab and click Add. You can select from the following pre-defined roles:

Front End

Back End

OWA

Bridgehead

Public Folder

Client Access

Mailbox

Unified Messaging

Edge Transport

Hub Transport

Select the Server Roles tab.

MessageStats can discover the server roles for a server in Active Directory and assign a matching server role in MessageStats.

When a role is removed from the Exchange server in Active Directory, MessageStats updates the server role property for the server the next time that it gathers the Exchange organization structure. MessageStats automatically gathers the Exchange structure once a day (at midnight, local time).

You can manually run an Exchange Organization Structure gathering task to enumerate the organization and update the Exchange server roles. For a specific organization, you can select the organization in the treeview, right-click and select the Regather Structure option.

Setting Server Thresholds for Reports

Thresholds provide context to trends of data on graphs. You can apply thresholds to each server in your enterprise. Use the Thresholds tab to set appropriate thresholds.

Select the Thresholds tab.
