Test-ExchangeSearch or Test-ExchangeSearch -MailboxDatabase doesn't work in Exchange Server 2016 and Exchange Server 2013 CU6


You cannot run the Test-ExchangeSearch cmdlet without parameters or run it together with the -MailboxDatabase parameter in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 or Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 6 (CU6) environment. However, you can run Test-ExchangeSearch together with other parameters successfully.


This issue occurs because the names of the Health mailboxes in Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 CU6 are changed.



Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
