When the Test-PowerShellConnectivity cmdlet is executed in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 organization that is monitored by a System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) server, you receive a SCOM alert that resembles the following:
Management Group: Group
Description: The test couldn't test the internal URL of this virtual directory, because the InternalURL property isn't set.
Virtual directory: PowerShell-Proxy (Default Web Site)
Diagnostic command: "Test-PowerShellConnectivity -TestType:Internal -MonitoringContext:$true -TrustAnySSLCertificate:$true"
EventSourceName: MSExchange Monitoring PowerShellConnectivity Internal.
This issue occurs because a monitoring rule on the SCOM server executes the Test-PowerShellConnectivity cmdlet against a Client Access server that handles proxy requests. Additionally, because the internal URL of the PowerShell virtual directory is not set on the Client Access server, the execution of the Test-PowerShellConnectivity cmdlet fails.
To resolve this issue, install Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3 (SP3) on the Exchange Server 2010 servers. For more information about Exchange Server 2010 SP3, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
