Have you ever try to export Remote IP on your Exchange Server Receive Connector ? I bet you will guess by using Exchange Management Shell (EMS), the answer is correct! Smile

You can execute it by typing Get-ReceiveConnector –Identity ServerName\Relay | ft RemoteIP*, and you get result like the following below.


As you can see, there’s three magnificent dots at the end and you’re guessing, “How in the world expand those dots?”

Actually its pretty simple, just execute this command : Get-ReceiveConnector ("ServerName\Relay").RemoteIPRanges

And then maybe you can export it to CSV or TXT file Smile


Server Posterpedia

Have you download Server Posterpedia from Store ? If you like poster from any component architecture, I believe you’ll like it a lot! Open-mouthed smile


Here’s one example come from Hyper-V Windows Server 2012


PowerShell 3.0 Intellisense

I don’t know from where MS found that word “Intellisense” but it awsome feature on PowerShell..!! Open-mouthed smile If you want to try it, start PowerShell and type ise, it will start Windows PowerShell ISE.

So if you type let say Get- and right click on it, it will give you an option to Start Intellisense.


Or next time you can just use Ctrl+Space to activate it. And as you can see below, it will give you a dropdown list of cmdlets and a tooltip display the syntax of the cmdlet.


So I have Database Server running SQL Server 2008 R2, but a lot of Database and Drives on the Windows Server, the request is I want to know each location of Data and Log file on the server, I don’t want to right click and see each one of properties of the DB, so do you right ? Open-mouthed smile

Simple answer is I have to execute this query :

SELECT name, physical_name AS current_file_location
FROM sys.master_files

And the result like the following picture below:


This post related to, my friend told me there’s something weird on drive C:\. There’s a folder name Windows.old, and it consumed more than 20 GB! Disappointed smile

So what is the folder contains ? and how to delete it ? First you have to execute Disk Cleanup, select drive C:, and choose Clean up system files, choose drive C: again.


Then it will show this option below, you can see there’s an option Previous Windows installation(s), check it and click OK. Now you got some space on your C: drive.
