Application Details

This resource provides details concerning the current Exchange application.

The following list defines each field of this resource:

  • Application Name: This provides the name of the current application as well as the name of the node on which it is active. Hovering over the node name reveals a detailed tooltip concerning the health of that node.
  • Status: Displays the current status of the application.
  • Exchange Server Version: Displays the current version of Exchange that is being monitored.
  • Exchange Server Build Number: This is Microsoft's internal versioning number system that indicates the version of Exchange installed. For more information, refer to this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh135098%28EXCHG.141%29.aspx
  • Exchange Domain: The domain of the listed Exchange server.
  • Database Availability Group (DAG): This contains information pertaining to the DAG of which the local node belongs.
    • DAG Name: Name of the listed Database Availability Group.
    • Other Exchange Servers in DAG: Lists additional Exchange servers in the current DAG.
    • File Share Witness: The File Share Witness (FSW) is the quorum directory for the DAG Cluster. It is used to provide a majority node set in a DAG with an even number of members. In a DAG with an odd number of members, the FSW still exists, but is not used to determine a majority node set.

      Note: This field may be replaced with the Alternate File Share Witness field.
    • (Alternate File Share Witness): The Alternate FSW is used when the primary site with the FSW has failed. To use the Alternate FSW requires manual intervention from the Exchange administrator.
