How to log ‘Exchange Management Shell’ session in Exchange 2010\2013


Exchange admins often want to log each and every command and their result to a text file, to be used\reviewed in future.

This is very easy in Exchange 2010\2013.

Locate ‘RemoteExchange.ps1″ file in Exchange Server bin folder, which has this path with default C: drive installation:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Bin

First take a backup of this file and then Open ‘RemoteExchange.ps1″ and put this commands:

$status = start-transcript;
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green "`n$status;"
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green "All of your commands would be logged to above mentioned text file`n";

as the last lines in the script, after “get-tip ” command.

Save this file, and restart “Exchange Management Shell”.

Hope this helps you.

Kind Regards,
