exchange mp - check mailbox store availability - mapi logon test

you know, i thought... while i'm on the issue of dumb event rules, this one came up. this rule kicks off the exchange 2003 - mapi logon verification script. there's nothing wrong with the idea of this rule... the problem is wholly in the execution. for example, you probably want to know when an error occurs right? so you leave this on... the logperfdata parameter in the script allows for three different values:
  • "0" - logs success events
  • "1" - logs information into a performance counter
  • "-1" - does not log
so what's the problem? if you set this value to something other than 0, the exchange service availability report will not have any data when it runs. nice.
