Mailbox objects have a database field, and databases have a StorageGroupName. I wanted to do:Get-Mailbox | where { $_.Database.StorageGroupName -eq ‘First Storage Group’…

Email Address Policy and OPATH filters

The other day, someone asked me a question. (get used to that sort of intro; I’m mining a lot of great blog post topics from questions running through my mailbox!) This time, the question was something along the lines of “I’ve got an Exchange 2003 Recipient Policy where I created a custom LDAP filter to define…

Byte Quantified Size and some Powershell tricks

The other day, someone asked me how they could convert the output of an Exchange 2007 property that was being displayed as “Bytes” into KB. They were trying to do all sort of arithmetic (dividing by 1024, etc) to come up with the value and it wasn’t displaying the way they wanted. The good news…

Evan is back – Blog update and future plans

In case you’re wondering what I’ve been up to during this exceptionally long period of very sporadic posting, today I’ve got some details.

KB.921181 and "File Share Witness"

KB out yesterday (KB.921181) covers the introduction and details about the new “File Share Witness” quorum model. This is an improvement to the original MNS design that allows a read/write file share to serve as the “voter” for quorum status, eliminating the need for a third (or, at least, “odd-number”) node as voter.

KB.867624 replaced

Looking for KB.867624? It’s been replaced and retired (and removed)… I had previously blogged about the “Upgrading to E2k3 SP2 on a cluster” process, and in that posting I had referenced the KB.867624 article about how to upgrade to E2k3 SP1 (pointing out that the process is essentially unchanged for SP2). But, someone brought to…
