When monitoring an Exchange server, a new service is created, which is named "Quest Remote Command Service". What caused this to be created and what is its purpose?
This service is used by Exchange Agent to run powershell commands on the monitored Exchange server. It will be automatically installed and started when the Exchange agent data collection starts and removed when data collection stops. It is used to collect metrics that can not be collected via WMI queries.
Note: Starting with Exchange cartridge version 188.8.131.52, Quest Remote Command Service functionality has been replaced by Agent Manager (FglAM) API.
