Understanding the Exchange 2007 Diagnostic Console

The Exchange Diagnostic Console provides you with a real-time representation of the messaging system processes and components within Exchange. When you connect to the Exchange 2007 Diagnostic Console, the home page displays a high level summary of your Exchange 2007 server. You can diagnose and resolve issues using the Exchange Diagnostic Console.

The home page contains the various panels, message flows, and drilldowns to help you perform an extensive analysis of the major components on your Exchange 2007 server.

To view detailed information on specific components, right-click a component, message flow, and drilldown, and select What’s This, Metrics, or Properties.

The Diagnostic Console retrieves a large amount of data from a server frequently, which can place excessive stress on a server, affecting the server's performance. Also, using the Diagnostic Console for an extended period of time can consume critical system resources, affecting the stability of UC Diagnostics as a whole.

Panels

The Exchange 2007 Diagnostic Console contains the following panels:

AD/DNS Panel

The components of the Directory Services panel indicate how Exchange 2007 interacts with directory services. This information includes:

AD

Shows the status of the Active Directory (AD) servers used by this Exchange 2007 server

DNS

Shows the status about the Domain Name System (DNS) servers in use by this Exchange 2007 server

Server Role Status Panel

This panel shows the Exchange 2007 roles that are installed. This information includes:

MBX

Shows whether the Mailbox role is installed on this Exchange 2007 server. The Mailbox role is responsible for hosting mailbox and public folder data. It also provides MAPI access for Outlook clients.

UM

Shows whether the Unified Messaging role is installed on this Exchange 2007 server. The Unified Messaging role enables you to access their mailbox, address book, and calendar using telephone and voice. Note that IP-PBX or VoIP gateway must be installed to use the functionality of the Unified Messaging role.

CAS

Shows whether the Client Access role is installed on this Exchange 2007 server. The Client Access role provides mailbox server protocol access apart from MAPI. It allows you access to the mailboxes using Outlook Web Access (OWA), POP3/IMAP4, and ActiveSync.

EDG

Shows whether the Edge Transport role is installed on this Exchange 2007 server. The Edge Transport role provides mail quarantine and SMTP services to enhance security. It is the first hop of incoming mail and the last hop of outgoing mail. Note that it does not require AD access so that it can function with limited access to the corporate network (for added security).

HUB

Shows whether the Hub Transport role is installed on this Exchange 2007 server. The Hub Transport role handles mail flow by routing messages to either another Hub Transport server, an Edge server, or a Mailbox server. This role uses AD site info to determine the mail flow.
