Cloud Class® Course: MCSA MCSE Windows Server 2012

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

Hello experts,

We are waiting for Microsoft’s Fast Track to help us rollout to Office 365 and it is taking some time... would any of you know any “good” office 365 project plan sample online that we can use to start with the preparation? We don’t have a project manager (long story) so kind of in a limbo in regards to timelines and milestones.

Thanks for all the jnfo! Super appreciate it.

I have a user that is unable to sign in to his Office 365 account on the local desktop applications: Outlook 2016, Word 2016, Excel 2016, etc.  I keep receiving a message when signing in to Outlook "This feature is disabled by your administrator".  I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office several times, tried modifying these registry keys in the article below: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3039000/this-feature-has-been-disabled-by-your-administrator-error-in-office-2 , and also tried an office repair.  I was able to sign-in on their account by using a different Windows username.  I also could sign-in on their account by using a different computer, but using their Windows username.  We also tried to deactivate all their devices on the Office admin portal, but that did not seem to work either.  Please let me know if anyone has any ideas or suggestions.

In Office 365, we want to create a calendar to easily share our status with others. We would invite the "calendar" when adding to our own calendar annual leaves, overseas travels, birthdays, etc...
As many will share the same mailbox, there are "appointment conflicts" which can be automatically allowed (John is overseas next Monday, Jane is on leave next week, thus there are 2 appointments on the same day... not a problem to us!)
Thus we want
  1. a shared calendar
  2. that is accessible by designated members
  3. that auto accepts invitations
  4. that is visible in Outlook on PCs and
  5. that is visible in Outlook App on smartphones

I created a Room and set all the rules to auto accept invitations, to allow conflicts, etc... using "Set-CalendarProcessing".
It is visible in my Outlook. Work great!
However I have not found a way to add that Calendar to my Android Outlook App. >>> This is the reason for this post

  • A "room" mailbox does not have a password, thus cannot be added as a regular mailbox
  • A "room" mailbox cannot share its calendars in Outlook
  • I tried to add the "Room" mailbox to the Outlook app using email = room@company.com user = myemail@company.com, password = mypassword ... does not work

Any suggestions? If possible within the Office 365 enviroment?

I have two applications currently configured through azure that appear on my office 365 slide deck. Both apps are cloud based.
Recently the apps completely disappeared from my slide deck for two days and then re appeared after I asked some questions internally
Is there any logs I can look at either in azure or 365 to understand what happened and why they disappeared. I checked azure audit but it didn’t show anything if interest. Thanks

we have office 2010 installed in our on premise xenapp server.perhaps we have seperate vdisks where office 2010 is  streamed to various delivery groups in studio

we have mailboxes in 365 and outlook 2010 is configured to talk to office 365.

we are currently upgrading outlook 2010 to outlook 2016 which will be still on premise.

right now i did a test on  1 VM which had c drive , i downloaded office 2016 from download center and configured the configuration.xml through online site and installed office 2016.

which looks to me click to run method and not .msi install

but to deploy on vdisk, i think i need to have shared computer activation in conf.xml and KMS , my question

can i just copy the office 2016 folder for office i created on my test vm to xenapp server , or i need to create an osi image , if osi image then which osi image we are referring to

basically what will be the steps for deploying..msi install of office 2016 on xenapp server

Installed a new Windows Server 2016 at an existing SBS 2011 site.  Email was Migrated to Office 365 several months ago and all clients were connected and working fine.

New server and domain are connected to Office 365 and Azure AD for management and password replication is working perfectly.

All Outlook 2010 clients connect to Office 365 fine.

None of the Outlook 2016 clients will connect to Office 365 for the previous user of the pc.  

Get

"something went wrong we weren't able to register your device and add it to windows"

and it continually asks for password.

Machine User Profiles were migrated from old domain to new domain.

 Can add outlook profile for new users and, can add an outlook profile for the user on a different machine.

The problem seems to be only present when the following are present.

Windows 10 Pro
Outlook 2016
Outlook profile existed on machine before the domain migration.

I have tried removing all Outlook profiles from the mail control panel and the registry.  No Joy.

I am currently looking to migrate users from exchange 2010 on prem to O365.
Users all currently have Outlook 2016 installed from there 365 accounts but are connected to their exchange 2010 account.
Is there a way I can use group policy or something similar to create a new mail profile to point to their O365 account?

I have downloaded the Office 2016 Group policies and there doesn't seem to be anything related to profiles?

Does Azure have inbuilt functionality for SSO to Office 365 or do you have to use a sync tool?

What is the best method when designing a multi-tenancy platform using Azure and Office 365 (Exchange), where you use SSO for authenticating users using Office 365 against domain controllers in Azure?

Exchange 2010 Hybrid with Office 365
Using AD Connect with DirSync
Migrating users does not keep the Email Address Policies.

I have several Policies that set the default email address based on what is in the 'Company' Field of the user. Everything was set correctly before I migrated the mailbox to O365, though after the Migration was complete its not using the Address Policy defined for that user.

I understand that you cannot Manage Email Address Policies for Mailboxes Directly in O365 Management and you can Alter them for Distribution Groups, though it was my understanding that in a Hybrid environment the Email Address Policies defined on the On-Premise Server should replicate to O365?

Thanks!

Our company utilizes Office 365 for our emailing and calendaring needs. We were recently purchased by another company that utilizes G-Suite? They also use OneLogin to provide SSO and 2FA. All employees must access G-Suite via OneLogin. I have been tasked with migrating our company into their G-Suite. Does someone know of a good resource I can turn to to answer all of my questions concerning this migration?

  1. Should I use the Google Migration Tool?
  2. Since I am using a 3rd party tool to provide SSO and 2FA, does this change how the migration takes place?
  3. Should I allow that tool to create new G-Suite accounts from the O365 accounts, or should I create the new accounts first, and map the two?
  4. I need to go ahead and set a few employees up in G-Suite. Can I import all of their O365 stuff at a later date without messing up their accounts?
  5. Does the migration tool also migrate over emails that have been placed in the O365 online archive?
  6. How does the migration tool handle the various groups and mailing lists I have in O365?

These are just the first questions that have popped into my mind. I have found much more information for migrating from G-Suite to O365 than the other way around.
Do resource calendars migrate over?

Sorry, I just can't get my head around one drive vs. one drive for business for small / soho / single users.

ODFB has much more granularity for permissions, right?

If it's a 1 man shop.  They have office 365 business premium, which includes 1TB of ODFB and he wants to keep his files synced across his 3 desktops / laptops....  which does he use?

If there's less than 5GB of files (so the free onedrive is an option).  OD? ODFB?  If you choose OD in that case, what if he has more than 5GB of files. Pay more for OD space (that's an option, right?) seems a waste since he's already paying for 1TB of ODFB.

I hear about how ODFB is powered by sharepoint. Does it matter? Again, just wanting to keep files in sync for just himself across 3 devices...

I am doing data cleanup as we get ready to migrate to new software. Is there a way to remove a . (period) if it's the last character in a field. I am not sure if there is a function that can be used to be run.

I am doing this in an XLSX file and have Excel (Office 365) Version 1806 (Build 10228.20080)

Is modern authentication different from MFA?


Thanks!

Office 365 backup retention limit. In our current OnPrem exchange server, we are currently doing a continues daily backup. The reason of the continues daily backup because of legal noticed that we received. So, if we are going to move our email to Office 365, what is the retention limit that we can set? What is our option base of our current situation? Can we still do the continues daily backup in the cloud?

Hi,

I want to set up a brand new office 365 business essentials subscription new domain name from scatch.

So what I am trying to decide is if this is a good option to choose:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2013/10/08/purchase-your-custom-godaddy-domain-directly-through-office-365/

So here you can purchase it straight from Office 365.

Now lets say I do this.

1. Where are the DNS records then managed from? From an inerface in Office 365 or do I then manage it from the GoDaddy web site?

In other words if I want to add a new host A record where is it done from.

2. Any disadvantages with this method as opposed to creating a GoDaddy account separately and registering my domain name in there first.

3. Am I then billed from Microsoft only or do I get separate ones from GoDaddy?

4. Does this create a GoDaddy login that I can then login there web site with?

Thanks,

Ward.

I have been working for a week or so to get Office 365 Message Encryption (OME) to work for a client for GDPR purposes. First EE post here

Last week, once I enabled the RMS Template, via Outlook Web Access, I could Protect emails using either the 'Do Not Forward' template or the 'Encrypt' template,

Today I have been working on getting these options to appear in Outlook on the desktop as that is what most of the client's users, use. It took a while.

I read from here that you need to have at least build 1804 for it to work. So having updated my Outlook to the latest version:
Outlook - latest versionand I think waiting a few hours, I now have:
Encrypt button in OutlookAwesome.

I sent a test email (including Excel attachment)to my Apple account and I get the 'XXXX has as sent you a protected message' and I can click on the link to open the OME portal and request a one time passcode to open. We have already run the
Set-IRMConfiguration -DecryptAttachmentFromPortal $true

Open in new window

powershell command to allow the recipient to download the attachment without issue so that all works fine.

However, when I send the same test email (including Excel attachment) to another Office 365 user (same tenant or a different tenant and try to open the email in Outlook (not OWA) I get:
Outlook errorIf I fire up OWA (from the account I sent the email from) and try to open the same email it works fine. I can see the email in the message preview:

Hello,

I am trying to list the SMTP addresses of all of our O365 users.

Hi,

I have migrated a Mailbox to Office 365 but seems that the archived email via enterprise vault (EV) cannot be accessed. I can see that outlook is connected to the EV server but when opening the EV shortcuts content does not get retrieved from the EV Server.

I assume after migration of the mailbox i should still be able to retrieve the old archived mails from EV.

Please help.

Regards
