Understanding the state of the cluster service on your Exchange servers is a common need.

There are many ways to acheive this but I do like to create a quick Powershell snipit to speed up my work and share with others.

…this is especially handy in DR testing.

Note: Run in a “Exchange Management Shell”

1
2
3
Get-MailboxServer | %{GWMI -ComputerName $_.Name -Class Win32_Service | ` 
WHERE{$_.Name -eq "ClusSvc"} | `
Select __Server,Name,StartMode,State}

This will return all Exchange 2010 servers with a “Mailbox” role and the status of the “Cluster Service”.

Hope this helps.
