Yesterday we released some new tools to help make your life as an email admin easier. It’s called the Microsoft Exchange Troubleshooting Assistant v1.0. Here’s the description:
The Exchange Troubleshooting Assistant programmatically executes a set of troubleshooting steps to identify the root cause of performance, mail flow, and database mounting issues. The tool automatically determines what set of data is required to troubleshoot the identified symptoms and collects configuration data, performance counters, event logs and live tracing information from an Exchange server and other appropriate sources. The tool analyzes each subsystem to determine individual bottlenecks and component failures, then aggregates the information to provide root cause analysis.
As you can see, there’s some good stuff in the new assistant. Get it at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=4BDC1D6B-DE34-4F1C-AEBA-FED1256CAF9A&displaylang=en
We’ll be demoing this tool and a host of others starting next week as we launch the Q1FY07 Microsoft TechNet Seminars. We start the morning off with a Windows Vista Technical Overview then later do a bunch of fun stuff with Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange Server 2007 Beta 2.
