Manage Exchange Servers Remotely
The administrative aspects of Exchange went through a tremendous transformation in Exchange Server 2007. Exchange Server 2010 builds on this groundwork. At the heart of Exchange administration lies the Exchange Management Console (EMC) and the Exchange Management Shell (EMS). The EMC is graphical and takes the approach of the standard Windows management console tools. EMS, on the other hand, is based on Windows PowerShell. Any administrators who are intent on doing their job successfully must be intimately aware of these two tools. This chapter focuses on using these tools successfully.

Use the Exchange Management Console

As the graphical tool for administering Exchange Server 2010, the Exchange Management Console (EMC) is more commonly used by those who are new to administering Exchange. Many of the common administrative tasks can be performed in the EMC. In this section, you'll take a close look at the EMC and understand the basic features of the tool itself as well as some of the new advanced features in Exchange Server 2010.

Understand the EMC Basics

Understanding how to use the EMC is a key step to successfully administering Exchange. For most people, using the EMC is the first choice for completing an administrative task. So knowing how to use this tool is essential to an administrator's daily life.

Navigate the Management Console

The EMC is based on the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) version 3.0. The MMC is a framework for administrative tools. Any application (even non-Microsoft applications) can provide a snap-in for the MMC. Version 3.0 of the MMC added a new layout, which improves on what was available in version 2.0. Figure 2-1 uses the EMC to depict this layout.

Figure 2-1: The EMC and its components

Four panels (also called panes) comprise this tool. The left panel is called the Console tree. The Console tree provides your main point of navigation throughout the snap-in. In the Console tree, you can drill down to different nodes and select the scope of what you are working on. For example, in the EMC, there is a node in the Console tree called Server Configuration. If you expand the Server Configuration node, you have the option to select which type of server you want to administer. Selecting the Mailbox node will populate the other panes with the options and information for administering Mailbox servers.

The middle of the EMC is split into two parts-the Result pane and the Work area. The Result pane is the top half, and it contains the results of what you selected in the Console tree. For example, when you select the Mailbox node in the Console tree, the Result pane will contain a list of Mailbox servers.

The Work area is at the bottom of the EMC. This area displays information about what you've selected in the Result pane. So if you select the Mailbox server EX-MBX1, the Work area will list the storage groups and databases available on that Mailbox server. What you see in the Work area depends on what type of item you select. For example, if you are working with Client Access servers and you select a server in the Result pane, the Work area will display things that pertain to that server.

The last panel on the right side of the EMC is the Actions pane. The Actions pane presents you with several actions that you can perform on the items you have selected in other panes, including the Console tree, Result pane, and Work area. T
