Dear all,

Every day we are receiving a report about the heath of our two exchange server.

Yesterday I installed the Windows server 2016 cumulative update and the security update of the cu18

2x OS : Windows server 2016
2x Exchange version : 2016

We are using the "Test-ExchangeServerHealth" from here :

And today today we can see in the report that there is an issue with the transport queue

Each time I re run the report the number of failure increase.

here is what I've already tried :



Appreciate any help and advises.

    Dear all,

    We fixed the issue.

    In fact the problem was located in the second exchange server.
    The disk was full and we had to expend it.

    Then all the queue started to decrease automatically

    Don't look at just the submission queue, look at them all

    get-queue -server <server>

    Hi @Lucas Vorms ,

    As suggested by Andy, from the output of the Get-Queue command, it seems that the issue is related to the backlog in the delivery queue to journal db. If the message count in the queue doesn't tend to decrease, I'd recommend giving it a go by restarting the Transport Service and see how it goes.
    In case the issue persists, you can have a look at the Queue Viewer to see if there's any error message for the messages stuck in the queue. It's also suggested to check the Event Viewer for potentially relevant event logs.
