Exchange server get-serverhealth results

Copper Contributor

Hello guys,


We are have 2 Exchange 2016 servers in DAG mode

We tried exchange powershell script on the active server to perform health check tasks


Script we run

get-serverhealth -server XX-XX-exchXX-XX


After the server rebooted, it had different unhealthy items, and some items maybe flapping between healthy and unhealthy. However the Exchange servers were performing fine in terms of sending and receiving emails from user sides.


Afterwards, it had stable states while the following items are reported unhealthy constantly for 5 days

We would like ask for help from Exchange experts for the following questions


1. Why some monitoring items will be flapping at reboot?

2. There are 39 unhealthy items, shall we be worried about them?

3. From the description, the cmdlet returns health values that you can use to determine the state of the server. Are we using the right script to monitor it or any other powershell cmdlet to determine the running status of the exchange server


Thank you so much in advance


Regards CUGURU
