Windows Server Essentials - Configuration Troubleshooter

After a recent support case came up, where i could not see the wrong settings via the GUI, i decided to write a script to check things for me. This tool will check IIS and Certificates.

    • I've followed the directions and the title happens. Any ideas?
    • Which OS are you running on?
  • Server 2012 R2 w/essentials role

    • I upgraded a server 2012 essentials server to server 2012 standard (keeping the essentials role). When I run this, it thinks it is checking a client, and only checks the ports. Is there any way to force this to run the entire script?
    • Ill need to update it will do that today.
    • Is this 2012 or 2012 R2?
  • I can't get past policy blocks to run this?

    • the connector script log tell me it has failed because of certificates so I wanted to run this script to understand why but I am new to powershell and I can't get it do run.
    • You need to right click the file and unblock it
      run PS as admin, type in,
      set-executionpolicy remotesigned 
      then hit enter and type Y.
      then run the script again :)
      As well the script needs to be in a folder like serverfolders for example, not c:\windows\system32  type .\EssentialsTester.ps1 to launch it.
  • This script is not digitally signed

    • I do not have much experience in the area's of scripts and powershell. I am having an issue with multiple client pc's losing the Trust Relationship with the domain. After searching the forums and TechNet for information I found some references to your script , but... No matter what I do I keep getting this error
      I followed instructions to change the execution policy;
      PS C:\Windows\system32> Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
      And then ran the script
      PS C:\Windows\system32> F:\ServerFolders\Networking\EssentialsTester.ps1
      F:\ServerFolders\Networking\EssentialsTester.ps1 : File F:\ServerFolders\Networking\EssentialsTester.ps1 
      cannot be loaded. The file F:\ServerFolders\Networking\EssentialsTester.ps1 is not digitally signed. The 
      script will not execute on the system. For more information, see about_Execution_Policies at
      At line:1 char:1
      + F:\ServerFolders\Networking\EssentialsTester.ps1
      + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
          + CategoryInfo          : SecurityError: (:) [], PSSecurityException
          + FullyQualifiedErrorId : UnauthorizedAccess
      what am I doing wrong?
    • You need to unblock the file, go to the properties and click unblock.

    • I managed to run the script.  It noted that the application pools should be started.
      Certificates etc were ok however the connector still fails with Failed to download from server: System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel. ---> System.Security.Authentication.AuthenticationException: The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure.

    • This Q&A is probably best left to just questions about the script itself.
      For your issue can i ask you to open a thread on the forum?
