Lync 2013 / SfB 2015 Client Security Update – July 2019

Here we are boldly staring down Christmas again for another year, and I’ve just realised not one but TWO updates to the Office 2013-based Skype for Business client have snuck past me in recent months. (Well, at least I have a handy New Year’s Resolution up my sleeve now…) The previous update was June, and …

Our annual housewarming – the DHMG

Rocky and I bought our first home together back in late 1995. It was a lovely 3-bedroom semi-detached house in one of the inner-western suburbs of Sydney. We found ourselves holding a housewarming for it in January 1996, and for some reason lost to history we settled on a parody / lampooning of the poster …

Adventures with Import- and Update-CsUserData Pt.2

I’ve spent a lot of time this year working with the <verb>-CsUserData commandlets in SfB, and it’s been an interesting time.

Get-RibbonSbcUptime.ps1

Inspired by a question from John Cook on Twitter, I’ve taken my “Update-RibbonADCache.ps1” script, and through the magic of “Save As” we now have Get-RibbonSbcUptime.ps1. Get-RibbonSbcUptime.ps1 invokes a REST login to your Sonus/Ribbon SBC 1k/2k/SWe-Lite and reports how long it’s been running: the CpuUptime. It outputs to the pipeline either a timespan object, or a …

Microsoft Teams Deep-Dive – Canberra follow-up

I presented a Teams Deep-Dive session at Microsoft’s office in Canberra this week. At the end there were a few links I wanted to share with the participants, and a few homework questions I wanted to research and respond to.
