We’ve updated our baseline requirements for deploying AAD Connect, so I’ve updated the AAD Connect Network Communications Test to reflect those changes.
- We now allow you to configure AAD Connect using the Hybrid Identity Administrator role, so the tool now checks for it.

Nearing the height of the COVID pandemic here in the U.S., I bashed together a script to help customers auto-answer Teams calls with video. You can find the original here: Auto-Answer Teams Call with Video and PowerShell.… [ 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.… [ Continue reading ]
As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been trudging towards migrating the 60 or so tools, modules, and scripts I published on the now-retired TechNet Gallery over to the PowerShell Gallery.
I want to make sure I migrate the things that people find most useful–so far, I’m about halfway and wanted to do a quick check-in:
PowerShell Gallery | Packages matching atguilmette
Let me know what tools you’re looking for and I’ll prioritize getting those up!… [ Continue reading ]
Post Technet Gallery requirement, I’ve been slowly going through my tools and updating them for the PowerShell Gallery. I came across this tool I built for troubleshooting a deployment at a customer a few years ago and immediately dove into updating it with new endpoints.… [ Continue reading ]
Earlier this week, I got a request from one of my readers to re-publish the SharePoint Site Access Report I put together back in July of 2019.
So, I’ve done exactly that. It’s a quick report and has been useful for several of my customers–maybe it can be useful for you, too! … [ Continue reading ]
As you’ve possibly seen in a previous post from a few years back, I wrote a tool specifically to identify a gap in our IDFix tool (namely, the inability to identify which objects were duplicates across one or more forests).… [ Continue reading ]
Update: I’ve published this as function that you can install from the PowerShell Gallery and then dotsource whenever you need it. Check it out!
Here’s a quick one for today–I wanted to upgrade the Check External IP function that I have in my PS Profile and expand it to be able to use more than one provider. … [ Continue reading ]
This week, I’ve got a few updates for the AAD Network Communications Test!
- I’ve moved it to the PowerShell Gallery. You can now install it with PowerShellGet by using the command:
Install-Script -Name AADConnect-CommunicationsTest
- I’ve updated the GCC High and DOD endpoints to the best of my ability (I’m always looking for feedback on this, so if you have new endpoints, be sure to connect with me!)
… [ Continue reading ]
A new year, a new test!
While troubleshooting a few installation and update issues, I noticed that the endpoints list was a smidgen out of date, so I’ve updated that. For this update, I attached Fiddler (http://www.telerik.com/Fiddler… [ Continue reading ]
My colleague Andreas asked today for some help troubleshooting an issue he’d run into with the Create-LabUsers script failing while using the InflateMailboxes parameter.
The problem ended up being three-fold:
- I had some pre-populated user names that had spaces in them
- I hadn’t trimmed the spaces out when constructing the SMTP address (although I had for the UPN)
- I didn’t test for a valid RFC sender address when constructing the mail
So, all of those things together conspired to generate errors whenever some of those user names were hit. … [ Continue reading ]
Based on some user feedback, I’ve made the following modifications to the OneDrive for Business Admin Tool:
- Fixed a reference to the original function name for FolderToDelete
- Added verbiage referencing the -Confirm parameter when using FolderToDelete parameter
- Tidied up code indentations to make it more readable
I’ve got some additional feedback that I will incorporate as well (once I figure out how to do it).… [ Continue reading ]
As my kids are eager to tell me, I done messed up. 😉 One of my readers pointed out an oversight where a null variable may have been referenced–and it’s been corrected! H/T to @itpro_tipscom!… [ Continue reading ]
Sometimes, your mind just gets to thinking about stuff you could have done better. Last night was one of those times.
I’d started building new lab environments for work, and decided to start pumping users into AD and syncing them to my test tenants. … [ Continue reading ]
Yes, these seems like a silly feature to add (since you can just do a single identity from the haveibeenpwned.com website, buuuuuuuttttttttttt…..), I wanted to showcase the script’s versatility while at a customer, so I added this one on the fly today.… [ Continue reading ]
