Full disclaimer: this is a mish-mash of other scripts and random commands found in forums etc. I tried to find the original authors for credit but was unable. Sorry if some of this script is you and you aren't mentioned!

Use this plugin to check the status of the mailbox copies in your Exchange 2010 DAG. You'll need a proxy host to run your Powershell commands (or they can be run directly from the Exchange server(s)).
More info here: http://www.nsclient.org/nscp/discussion/topic/637

Only parameter you need to pass is the mailbox server name. It will return a warning if the indexstate is damaged on any of your mailbox DBs, or critical if they're unmounted or unhealthy.

There appears to be a syntax error (or at least when executed on my system Server 2008 R2 Exch 2010)

When running on my exchange server, Mounted and Dismounted databases report as OK.

If you change:
if(($state.status -match "Mounted") -or ($state.status -match "Healthy")){
if(($state.status -match '^Mounted') -or ($state.status -match '^Healthy')){


if(($ContentIndexState.status -match "Healthy") -or ($ContentIndexState.status -match "Mounted")){
if(($ContentIndexState.status -match '^Healthy') -or ($ContentIndexState.status -match '^Mounted')){

It then works properly for me.

Other than that great script. Thanks.

Thanks for that! I'll update the uploaded script with your correction. Cheers.
