On October 26th ENow hosted the webinar "Deploy Exchange 2016 On-prem and Hybrid Webinar".
"Support for Office 365 is part of the Exchange 2016 DNA. Yet, traditional on-premises deployment still make up a large number of Exchange deployments worldwide. In this session, we will cover the various deployment options and take a peek into what it takes to install, configure and manage an Exchange 2016 on-premises or Exchange 2016 hybrid deployment."
The script published by the Exchange Team 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 beeing thrown:
Cannot convert value "21/05/2010" to type "System.DateTime"
Version 2.1 of the script published by the Exchange Team works without the fix.
Additional credits go to Microsoft Exchange Team.
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.

During DEV/IT Connection the new release of Office 365 for Exchange Professionals has been published.
Personally I recommend this book to every Exchange professional who wants to implement Exchange Hybrid setups or needs to migrate to Office 365. If you want to be successful, read this book and use it as a reference.
The information provided reflects the experience of the authors who contribute to the Exchange community regularly. This has been written without any Office 365 marketing stuff in mind. (As one of the authrors is Tony Redmond).
The chapters provide an overview of the various technologies as well as detailed informations for the day to day work of an Exchange administrator. Notes from the field help to understand the complex (or not so complex at all) requirements of Exchange hybrid configurations.
Due to the nature of "The Service", an Exchange administrators needs to keep up with the changes deployed constantly. This book covers the most recent changes and evolvement to "The Service" like Groups or Delve.
I will kep it short:
Buy It. Read It. Enjoy It.

This script adds multiple public folder servers to all public folders below a TopPublicFolder.
The script has been developed as part of an on-premise legacy public folder migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange Server 2010.
The script waits a given timespan in seconds to let public folder hierarchy replication and replica backfill requests kick in.
It is assumed that the script is being run in an Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010 server.
