Just can't get enough of IT

This blog is about mostly anything in IT. But the primary focuses are Microsoft Technologies like Exchange, Office 365, Azure and Cloud Security.

Exchange Server 2010Description

When you want to migrate your legacy public folders from Exchange 2010 to modern public folders in Exchange Online you must prepare the public folder names for migration.

Public folder names are not allowd to contain the following:

  • Backslash "\"
  • Forward slash "/"
  • Leading or trailing spaces

The script Fix-PublicFolderNames.ps1 fixes the public folder names in preparation for migration to modern public folders.

Examples

# EXAMPLE
# Rename and trim public folders found on Server MYPFSERVER

.\Fix-PublicFolderNames -PublicFolderServer MYPFSERVER

Version History

  • 1.0, Initial community release

The following PowerShell snippet helps to create room lists for the Room Finder functionality in Outlook or Outllok on the Web.

This snippet creates a new room list named All Video Conference Rooms. The display name is shown in the Room Finder combo box. The room list members are a mixture of physical rooms (where you actually go to) and virtual rooms which you just dial into.

# General Properties
$DisplayName = 'All Video Conference Rooms'
$Name = 'DEP_IT_AllVideoConfRooms'
$Alias = 'IT_AllVideoConfRooms'
$Notes = 'Room List for Outlook Roomfinder | All Video Conference Rooms'
$OU = 'MCSMLABS.de/Exchange/Groups/RoomLists'
$EmailAddress = 'ITAllVideoConfRooms@mcsmemail.de'

# Romm List Members 
$Members = @('Conference Room 1','Conference Rooms 2','Virtual Dial-In Room 4711')
 
# Create Distribution Group as Room List 
New-DistributionGroup -DisplayName $DisplayName -Name $Name -Alias $Alias -Notes $Notes -Type Distribution -OrganizationalUnit $OU -PrimarySmtpAddress $EmailAddress -Members $Members -RoomList


Use this snippet to start developing your own Exchange PowerShall code for creating and managing rooms and room lists.

If you want to create new rooms and security groups for managing full-access and send-as permissions, use my PowerShell script Create a new Room Mailbox with Security Groups.

Enjoy Exchange!

Starting September 11th 2017 Microsoft Teams supports guest access for external users

Guest access for Microsoft Teams uses a separate guest license type that must be activated in the services & add-ons section of the Office 365 Admin portal. 

Activate Microsoft Teams Guest License Type

 

Office 365 Admin portal notification:

When we make this change, the ‘Pick the license you want to configure’ setting in ‘Settings > Services and Add-ins > Microsoft Teams’, will now have an option for ‘Guest’ with a default value of “off” for the ‘Turn Microsoft Teams on or off for your entire organization’ setting.

When you've not activated guest licenses, external user receive an odd error when trying to access your shared team.
