When i ran this tool on our exchange server 2010 it says not valid exchange server is detected. Our server was installed by our hoster. How can i check if they did their work properly?

Hein,
hire me and i will tell you if your exchange environment is set up correctly 🙂 . But you can check best practice analyzer on exchange to do a quick check and see if you have anything missing/miss configured for a start.

Anyhow,
I would like to thank you guys who worked on this utility, you guys have no idea how many times this tool saved me — so Thank you!

yousef

Tried ver 1.5 on exchange 2010 sp3 ru3, not detecting that is running on a DAG server, what could be the problem?
