Toolkit

ToolsLike most Exchange fellows, I maintain a set of offline tools to analyze, design and deploy Exchange environments or setup or troubleshoot Exchange Online deployments. These tools are additional to the original media, service packs and rollup packages. Because of the variety in customer environments, i.e. Exchange versions, the set contains several tools or versions of tools.

The table below is my current “Exchange and Office 365 Toolkit”. The list has been divided in a section for Exchange on-premises and Exchange Online / Office 365. Note that online tools, such as Remote Connectivity Analyzer, can be found in the menu on your right. When you are looking for Service Packs or Rollups, please consult Versions, Builds and Dates page. Note that I try to keep this kit list up to date as possible; if you see any inaccuracies or suggestions for something which needs to be in there, please let me know.
