August in review: the top Exchange Server content

In our monthly feature, we recap the most popular content with our Exchange Server readers from the previous month and share it with you.

Exchange admins were interested in a number of topics for August, included failed server recovery, how Office 365 fits in to mergers and acquisitions and Exchange 2013’s Managed Availability feature.

Your best options to recover after a failed server

It’s possible to use some heavy tools to help you manually remove what little may be left in Active Directory after your Exchange Server fails, but admins should consider other potential alternatives before they do so.

Mergers or acquisitions may require combining Office 365 tenants

If organizations are required to combine their infrastructures after a merger or acquisition occurs, Exchange admins may need to merge Office 365 tenants. Learning what some of the key challenges are in doing so can help admins better prepare for this merge.

What’s new with Exchange Server transaction logs

Knowing how to read and process information from log files is an essential task for Exchange admins to keep their environments up and running. Brushing up on some of the changes to log files in Exchange 2013 can help admins protect their setups from disaster.

Decoding Exchange 2013’s Managed Availability feature

Managed Availability, which is essentially Exchange 2013’s built-in remediation and monitoring platform, has confused some Exchange admins. We have an Exchange MVP break down just how the feature works to maintain a server’s health.

Why it’s time to for Exchange admins to plug in and learn PowerShell

PowerShell has become a cornerstone of Exchange administration since it was first included in Exchange 2007. If admins haven’t yet learned the basics of this scripting language, we offer five of the basics all admins should know to give them a starting point.
