There are times when your organization (or a customer’s organization) just can’t run the Exchange Hybrid Configuration Wizard. If you’re embarking on one of our strategies to take advantage of Microsoft Teams while your mailboxes are still on-premises, the Exchange Hybrid configuration is the go-to way to get there, since it sets all this stuff up automatically. … [ Continue reading ]
Just a quick note–if you use this tool, I’ve updated its logging output (though not the tool itself).
Also, I’m always open to suggestions on how to make it better!
You can download the latest version from the PowerShell Gallery: https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/Get-PublicFolderIDFixReport/2.3.2… [ Continue reading ]
Hi! Just a quick note to let you all know I’ve updated the email validation function for the Get-PublicFolderIDFixReport tool used when verifying mail-enabled public folders. I used the formula from my previous post. 🙂
If you have ideas on how to make this tool more useful, please let me know!… [ Continue reading ]
While updating the my Public Folder IDFix tool, I was testing the [
Net.Mail.MailAddress] class. I’ve used it in the past, and it seemed to be a pretty simply way to check for valid addresses, but I started running into problems with it not detecting some things that were obviously not in the RFC.… [ Continue reading ]
Since the TechNet Gallery retirement, I’ve had several users contact me regarding the Public Folder IDFix tool that I put out almost 6 years ago. I don’t do a lot of Exchange Public Folder migrations any more, so I shelved a lot of updates and things that I had planned for my public folder tools.… [ Continue reading ]
This past weekend, while working with a customer on a new proof-of-concept deployment of Exchange Hybrid and Microsoft Teams, we had a need to validate that no user accounts would be inadvertently updated during the upgrading of Exchange 2003 Recipient Policies to modern Exchange email address policies.… [ Continue reading ]
One of the issues that some of my larger customers have been dealing with is the lack of tooling and planning around moving legacy Exchange Online In-Place eDiscovery & Holds to the new(ish) Security & Compliance Center. Our direction has been to either let them age out or manually recreate them the Security & Compliance Center.… [ Continue reading ]
At long last, I’ve made a first pass at updating the Migrate-EOPSettings script to now include settings for Advanced Threat Protection. I’ve had several customers moving their instances from commercial EOP to Office 365 GCC, and while my Migrate EOP script would capture just about everything, it came to my attention that we still had configuration to do for ATP. … [ Continue reading ]
The other day, on one of the forums, I came across an issue that I also had with one of my customers a few years ago. In my customer’s instance, they had imported thousands of contacts into an externally trusted forest and deleted them in their primary forest (which then removed the objects from Office 365). … [ Continue reading ]
It’s that time of the year again! I’ve expanded upon an existing feature in the AAD Network Test Tool.
One of the prerequisites listed on the AAD Connect support page is to ensure the Turn on PowerShell Transcription GPO is set to Not Configured. … [ Continue reading ]
Four score and many moons ago, I was working on one of my first projects in Microsoft Consulting Services. This particular customer (a university) shared their Active Directory infrastructure with a hospital. During the course of their business, employees would frequently move between organizations. … [ Continue reading ]
Over the last couple of days, I’ve updated a few tools that I have published on the gallery. Here’s the run-down:
AAD Connect Network and Name Resolution Test
I’ve been busy with this tool a lot lately, both adding tests and tweaking the way things are done. … [ Continue reading ]
While working with a partner this weekend on a tenant to tenant migration, we had the need to migrate Office 365 groups. There’s not really a lot of information around on recreating groups and memberships, so I decided to put together a tool to help the effort.… [ Continue reading ]
A while ago, I wrote about a script that I had built for creating BitTitan MigrationWiz connectors with the parameters necessary to do bulk resource mapping. This worked pretty well, until I downloaded the newest version of the PowerShell module when I had to do it for a customer that was already partway through their migration.… [ Continue reading ]
