Skype is for doing things together, whenever you’re apart. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people that matter to you, wherever they are.

With Skype, you can share a story, celebrate a birthday, learn a language, hold a meeting, work with colleagues – just about anything you need to do together every day. You can use Skype on whatever works best for you - on your phone or computer or a TV with Skype on it. It is free to start using Skype - to speak, see and instant message other people on Skype for example.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I am having an odd issue, some users are constantly receiving a request to enter there credentials for Outlook and Skype. We have a hybrid O365 environment and for the life of me I can not figure out why this keeps happening. The fix I have found is to remove all saved credentials and then have them re-enter but for some users this happens every few weeks and it is extremely frustrating. Anyone else see this of know how to fix it? O365 support hasn't been much help.

Hi Experts,

I just recently purchased a MacBook Air for myself to learn more about the operating system and how to use it, so my knowledge of how to configure things in it is pretty elementary, if non existant.

I have a problem I can't seem to find a suitable solution with google. On my install, I have 3 icons that appear as Question marks instead of their icons. Please see example image below.

Icons are a Question Mark
Can anyone explain how I can resolve this, so that the Grammarly, Firefox and Skype icons appear as they should?

Please note: Including any screenshots with your comments if possible (that you think may be helpful) would be a real bonus for me and much appreciated at this stage of my learning curve ;-)

Hi Experts,

Is there any other way or method of gathering inactivity reports other than going to the Office 365 portal in reporting and exporting Office 365 active users?  How accurate/reliable is the data in this for last activity in exchange, skype, sharepoint, etc.?

I also ran this PS script, but this only give me the lastlogon time/date stamp of the mailbox:
Get-LastLogonStats.ps1
https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Export-Office-365-User-7fc0b73f

My goal is to manage 30k users, and clean up licenses that are no longer needed by 90 days of inactivity.  This would include all aspects of the license:  mail/exchange, skype, sharepoint, access any of the online apps such as word, excel, powerpoint, etc.

Appreciate any direction anyone can point me in!

Hello,

I need little help with renewing 3rd party certificate on Skype for Business 2015 server.
As per pictures attached, i want to renew only that certificate (SIP, since it is 3rd party and all others are from internal CA), and when i go to Request with Advanced option, and populate everything i end up with csr, that has a common name of webdir.<domain>.com, in stead of sip.<domain>.com (as it is atm).

So, the question is how to renew this certificate but to have CN of sip.<domain>.com, when there is no option to define CN?

Can I use maybe exchange server, generate CSR there, then just delete it after i get new cert, or something like that?

Regards,
Ivan.

Identify excessive bandwidth utilization or unexpected application traffic with SolarWinds Bandwidth Analyzer Pack.

I would like to have a backup of skype conversation history for one user before deleting the info within outlook for future reference. Alternatively, is there a way to not link one users chat history with their email account? Any info will be helpful.

Thank you,

Is there a way to customise the format of the Skype Meeting request text that appears when setting up the meeting in Outlook.
I would like to separate the text and clean it up a bit.
e.g.
Toll Number:        +61nnnn
Conference ID:     61216546
 

At the moment, it includes the phone number and conference ID in a single string, as per below.
Current Skype Meeting format

I have an Office 365 Skype for Business phone number that is loaded onto my iPhone X using the Skype for Business iPhone X app.

I would like to make it so that whenever I call someone from my iPhone X my Skype for Business phone number (and not my iPhone X phone number) will display on the caller ID screen of the person I am calling.

I want everyone to be calling my Skype for Business phone number and not my iPhone phone number.

I am the Office 365 Global administrator for my Office 365 domain.

How can this be done? Where do I need to go to enable this setting?

Hi,

I have been presented with a problem. I have been requested to add a custom Active Directory attribute value to all Lync contact Cards. A large number of managers that have Active directory accounts have the custom attribute "secretary" along with the value OU location to their secretaries Active Directory Object. . Can that Active Directory custom attribute (called secretary) be updated in Lync Server 2010 and reflected on the Skype for Business contact Card? Can the ABS Configuration Tool be used for this task can a custom attribute be added to it.

I have Exchange Hybrid setup so we use AAD Sync. We are looking to use Polycom RealPresence Group Series 700 with Skype Online in O365 but we don't have a PBX.
Should we create a mailbox (which includes ad account) on-prem for it, and then sync/migrate it to Exchange Online. Then from there, assign the skype license and configure/convert?

Hi,

We have had Skype for a few years.

We are interested in purchasing Skype for Business and installing on a Windows 10 PC.

Before we do so, we would like to know:

- What are the differences between Skype and Skype for Business
- How much does Skype for Business cost
- Where to buy Skype for Business
- Can a person with Skype for Business call someone using Skype and vice versa
- Can the same Skype for Business account be used on any Windows PC in different locations
- Do we need an Office 365 account or can we use Skype for Business without it
- Can Skype for Business be used in a location with low bandwidth

We appreciate your support with the above.

Thanks,
Robbie

When I call my cell phone using skype on my windows 10 computer
I see the caller id that I selected on skype.com
I am spoofing my phone number to display another phone number that I use but am not currently using because I am calling from a computer.

But when I call a big business the number that shows up is not mine and can not be called again.

How do I purchase the caller id system that a big business has.
Caller ID that does not work with a spoofed phone number.

Rowby Goren Makes an Impact on Screen and Online

Learn about longtime user Rowby Goren and his great contributions to the site. We explore his method for posing questions that are likely to yield a solution, and take a look at how his career transformed from a Hollywood writer to a website entrepreneur.

Current State:
1 Forest/1 Domain
AD Connect to Office 365 (syncing password hashes)
All on-premises Lync and Exchange servers have been decommissioned in the environment

Most users have attributes like this populated - looks like this from old on-premises (However, many are synced to 365):
msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator
msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled
msRTCSIP-InternetAccessEnabled
msRTCSIP-OptionFlags
msRTCSIP-PrimaryHomeServer
msRTCSIP-PrimaryUserAddress
msRTCSIP-UserEnabled
msExchShadowProxyAddresses

Q: Can I clear the above attributes without issue?

The reason I ask is I would like to clear the above attributes when I implement the following changes (which is the actual project at hand):

UserPrincipalName attribute    
from foo@contoso.com to foo@fabrikam.com

Mail attribute    
from foo@contoso.com to foo@fabrikam.com

ProxyAddresses attribute - the PrimarySMTPAddress
from SMTP:foo@contoso.com to SMTP:foo@fabrikam.com

ProxyAddresses attribute - the old PrimarySMTPAddress will become the secondary
from SMTP:foo@contoso.com to smtp:foo@contoso.com

ProxyAddresses attribute - the SIP Address
from SIP:foo@contoso.com to SIP:foo@fabrikam.com

We use Skype for Business but we're currently unable to review the chat logs and receive mobile updates (for instance, updates to a group conversation) on our mobile devices.  At my last place of employment I was able to do both.  My question is, are there some changes to our environment we would would need to make in order to enable both features?  For instance, will these features ONLY work if there's some sort of VPN client running on the mobile device?  Does the customer have to host Skype internally?

If there's a URL that describes the requirements I'd be glad to review them.

Thanks.

SIP and Primary SMTP domains do not match. Skype for Business 2015 client displays EWS not deployed.
Hello, I have an Exchange 2007 and Skype for Business 2015 Server on-premise solution deployed.
Originally, functioning fine with SAN certs using <company>.org domain for required certs on mail server and SfB 2015 Standard Edition solution (Standard, Edge and WAP servers).
Primary SMTP domain was <longcompanyname>.com  (domain NOT included in the SAN certs) and everything functioned fine including Conversation History and Calendar synch between Outlook (2007-2013) and Skype for Business 2015 client.
Fast forward a few years and....
New domain purchased and Primary SMTP for each user changed to <shortcompanyname>.com
NOW, Conversation History and Calendar do NOT synch with Outlook anymore.
Research appeared to state I can have this circumstance without issue after running 'Set-CsClientPolicy -DisableEmailComparisonCheck $true'
Ran the powershell command on the SfB Standard Edition server, rebooted test client and SfB solution. STill Outlook Integration Error and EWS not deployed in SfB client Configuration info.
Advice?

Users are being forced to upgrade to latest skype client, currently v8.25, but from what i can see the user is not able to increase the chat text size.   This is troublesome and a backwards step for particularity elderly people using 1080+ screens.  

Skype (version 7) for Windows will stop working soon. Update to the new Skype (version 8) for Windows today! Don’t miss out on exceptional HD video calling, 300 MB file transfers, the ability to tag contacts with @‍mentions and more. Upgrade to the latest version of Skype to seamlessly transfer your sign in information, contacts and chat history. For more details and help, visit this page.

Does anyone have a hack/workaround for the text size?   If Microsoft have not built the setting into the initial design I can't imagine they will be adding it anytime soon.

Thanks,
--Paul
