Adding and Editing an Exchange Monitor

The Exchange Monitor lets you monitor the Microsoft® Exchange™ Server application. The Exchange Monitor provides real-time information about the state and health of Microsoft Exchange servers on your network. The Exchange Monitor supports monitoring of Microsoft Exchange Server version 2007 and later, which can be on any machine in your network. To create custom parameters to monitor, the Exchange Server host must be WMI-enabled.

Important: Do not use the Exchange Monitor to monitor Exchange 2003 servers.

Note: This feature is only available in WhatsUp Gold Premium Edition. To update your license, visit the MyIpswitch portal.
