The script published by the Exchange Team (Analyzing Exchange Transaction Log Generation Statistics) requires an update when run on a system that does not use the en-US locale as Culture.
When the script analyses the saved log file information, a DateTime error is thrown:
Cannot convert value “21/05/2010” to type “System.DateTime”
See the original blog post for examples: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/exchange-team-blog/analyzing-exchange-transaction-log-generation-statistics/ba-p/606394
The script utilizes the Get-UICulture cmdlet to fetch the culture settings required to have [DATETIME]::Parse() work as expected.
DateTime values are stored in the CSV file using the UICulture setting, but [DATETIME]::Parse() uses the local culture settings to parse values by default.
To check your settings in PowerShell, use the following cmdlets:
