Hi Guys, just found your postings on Google and thought I’d post about some work I've been doing in this area. As part of my University Thesis I have been developing a control panel for MS Exchange 2007. Its aimed at giving Small Bossiness the ability to administer their in-house Exchange servers, however the work done on it is easily transferable to he hosting environment. It does not use HMC but instead talks to Exchange via a PowerShell session hosted inside a .net web application. This works well in a small business environment, not sure how well it would scale to a larger environment. Anyway I’m offering my help and knowledge I've gained during this project if it’s useful to you.

HI Sam

Your help is most welcome although powershell isn’t the right medium to use in a hosted environment.  Powershell doesn’t give us the ability to scale large amounts of calls and can be very slow in responses and thus you experience a high number of timeouts on the control panel.  Also in a hosting environment you need to be able to roll back the process you have started at any point of failure which powershell isn’t always helpfull with especially if the call you make timesout the powershell wait time.

If you don’t use the MPS engine that is in HMC you are better of making direct calls to the webservices and wmi etc for exchange and ad far faster.

Regards

Leon
