Setup and Configuration

Microsoft Exchange can be monitored via WMI and/or the Opsview Agent, depending on your needs.

Current checks for the Agent support Microsoft Exchange 2007. They may also support later releases, but support is not guaranteed with the Opsview supplied checks. Additional checks, for use with the agent, can be quickly written in Powershell should more monitoring functionality be required.

WMI checks work with any version of Exchange configured to support access via WMI.

For more details on WMI configuration take a look at the OS – Windows Server page.
