{
	Write-Warning "There are no suitable Hub Transport servers as a witness server."
	Write-Warning "You should enter a witness server which has no Mailbox role on it."
	Write-Warning "Make sure that the group Exchange Trusted Subsystem is added to the local administrators of the server that will be the witness server."
