Just can't get enough of IT

This blog is about mostly anything in IT. But the primary focuses are Microsoft Technologies like Exchange, Office 365, Azure and Cloud Security.

On October 26th ENow hosted the webinar "Deploy Exchange 2016 On-prem and Hybrid Webinar".

"Support for Office 365 is part of the Exchange 2016 DNA. Yet, traditional on-premises deployment still make up a large number of Exchange deployments worldwide. In this session, we will cover the various deployment options and take a peek into what it takes to install, configure and manage an Exchange 2016 on-premises or Exchange 2016 hybrid deployment."

The script published by the Exchange Team (Analyzing Exchange Transaction Log Generation Statistics) requires an update when run on a system that does not use the en-US locale as Culture.

When the script analyses the saved log file information, a DateTime error is being thrown:

Cannot convert value "21/05/2010" to type "System.DateTime"

See the original blog post for examples: http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2013/10/07/analyzing-exchange-transaction-log-generation-statistics.aspx

The script utilizes the Get-UICulture cmdlet to fetch the culture settings required to have [DATETIME]::Parse() work as expected.

DateTime values are stored in the CSV file using the UICulture setting, but [DATETIME]::Parse() uses the local culture settings to parse values by default.

To check your settings in PowerShell use the following cmdlets:

  • Get-Culture
  • Get-UICulture
