You can run the Test-OwaConnectivity cmdlet and the Test-ActiveSyncConnectivity cmdlet in Exchange Management Shell on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 server. However, this operation may cause a memory leak in the Microsoft.Exchange.Monitoring.exe process if the connections time out. Additionally, the Exchange Server 2007 server meets multiple issues, such as has a slow response.
Note You can check the Virtual Bytes counter of the Microsoft.Exchange.Monitoring.exe process in Performance Monitor. The Virtual Bytes counter increases to 1 GB or bigger.
This problem occurs because an asynchronous HTTP Request is called by the httpWebRequest.BeginGetResponse() method in the Test-OwaConnectivity cmdlet and in the Test-ActiveSyncConnectivity cmdlet. However, if the connections time out, the httpWebRequest.EndGetResponse() method does not call to release memory. Therefore, a memory leak occurs.
To resolve this problem, install the following update rollup:
