Verify Exchange Services

This step verifies that Microsoft Exchange services are running on the recovered VM.


  1. To allow the script to run inside the guest OS of a processed machine, it is required that you have Microsoft PowerShell 3.0, .Net Framework 4.0 and Exchange Server 2013 (or later) installed on each machine for which you enable this step.
  2. To allow the script to verify that the services are running on the selected machine, the machine must run Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (or later).

You can override the following parameters for the Verify Exchange Services step:
