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 ]
This is just a quick update–if you’ve been using my Get-UserHoldPolicies script to check out the holds applied to your mailboxes, I’ve updated it to include the DelayHoldApplied property.
A Delay Hold is applied whenever a hold is removed from a mailbox (as in, the mailbox is excluded from an inherited policy or manually removed from an explicitly included policy), and stays in effect for 30 days. … [ Continue reading ]
Right before sending a customer the link for the tool, I decided to test it and noticed that I encountered an unexpected credential prompt. I updated the parameter name, and then added a new feature as well–a test to see if your tenant has the correct licensing to enable Password writeback. … [ Continue reading ]
Today, I pressed in a little bit on exploring CSOM–at least as it relates to the OneDrive for Business Admin tool.
One of my peers asked if there was a command that we could use to check to see if a site had been put on a retention hold. … [ Continue reading ]
This update comes from a user–it’s a pretty simple one.
I posted the script Remove-ProxyAddresses back in 2017 after writing a blog post on the same topic. In my script, I had covered Mailboxes, MailUsers, and Contacts. … [ Continue reading ]
While troubleshooting an issue for a peer today running the Exchange Hybrid Configuration Wizard, I suspected that the environment might have an authenticated proxy in the way. So, I dug out some code I used in the AAD Connect Network Test for Invoke-WebRequest.… [ Continue reading ]
I hadn’t touched this one in a while, but a recent request from a customer had me checking in on it. I tidied it up (no one likes people staring at their dirty laundry), and updated the scripting to be more efficient. … [ Continue reading ]
Hey, all! One AAD tool update deserves another!
Every so often, I check in to make sure I’m keeping the AAD Connect Network Test Tool as fresh as I can. I’ve made a few changes to the way it works (hopefully which you all think is for the better). … [ Continue reading ]
It’s been a while since I’ve updated this popular tool, and the need was brought to my attention by a peer who noticed an attribute being exported to on-premises AD (but failing):
As it turns out, the msDS-KeyCredentialLink is required for Windows Hello for Business Hybrid.… [ Continue reading ]
Update: The link for the tool has been updated to https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/Get-SCCExportDataSize/.
I’ve been tinkering around a little with this, hoping to bring some better updates (so maybe you can see who is generating your data exports and go smack them around).… [ Continue reading ]
Every now and then, I get a ahead of myself. I’ve updated a typo in the script on the gallery, a vestige of when I updated the script to use server-side filtering. The bug revealed itself when you did not use the -Domain parameter.… [ Continue reading ]
Who knew you’d need an update to a tool meant to delete things?
After working with a partner today and an out-of-control email application spamming user mailboxes, we decided an update was necessary. Outlook became unusable with several hundred thousand messages in Deleted Items. … [ Continue reading ]
A new year, a new update for Get-UserHoldPolicies! Woo!
I stumbled across some additional information today regarding deciphering hold policies for mailboxes while troubleshooting another issue and decided to update my Get-UserHoldPolicies tool to reflect it.… [ Continue reading ]
Hi! It’s a day ending in “y,” which means it’s a good day to update a script!
Today, while on-site with a customer and running my AAD Connect Permissions script, I noticed that the logging output wasn’t as helpful as I wanted it to be.… [ Continue reading ]
