Ensure Business Longevity with As-A-Service
Ensure Business Longevity with As-A-Service

Using the as-a-service approach for your business model allows you to grow your revenue stream with new practice areas, without forcing you to part ways with existing clients just because they don’t fit the mold of your new service offerings.

When someone calls me on SKYPE, they just appear. There's no ring and I don't have to click on anything to see them. This is annoying.  I don't want people to just appear when they call me on skype.  If it's a setting I haven't been able to find it to turn it off.  I'm running Skype 8.42.0.60, on a Dell optiplex 7040 desktop running Windows 10 Pro at the latest level.
Thanks,
Alan

Skype for Business sometimes detect the compatible USB head phone, other times it does not.
What could cause the above problem?
I am thinking there is possible corruption on the SSD.

Do I need to install the Plantronics software and see if it detects the headset.
I have not tested the headset on a different laptop to see if the problem happens again.

Is there any way to export or get a list of contacts or groups that were created in Skype for Business client?

I am running in office 365 and Office 2016 on windows 10 and have a lot of custom groups I created and wanted to back them up or copy or share them.

If this isn't possible, would the best thing be to created a Distribution list and then message the DL if I wanted this group skype functionality?

Thanks Experts!

Using Skype for Business in a Exchange 2010 Hybrid Environment

The conversation history doesn't show up for either internal or external calls

Is there anything that we need to look at in order to get this working?

Hey all, one of our users (at least we think it is only one) is having issues with caller ID, note that we use skype for business/O365 online.


For example: When he calls me I see his proper skype/office # on  the caller ID because he is calling me from his skype for business account....but if I miss the call, I do get an email notification....but in the details it shows as if the call came from his mobile #.


Any idea where the issue could be?


I did notice something in the desktop client settings...under Options - Phones, I do see his office and mobile #s listed, but am unable to change the mobile# because the "Mobile Phone" button is greyed out (see attached image)

I found this article that said its an admin setting, but I can't find it anywhere...again, not sure if this is the cause but figured I would mention it.

Thoughts??

CEOs need to know what they should worry about
CEOs need to know what they should worry about

Nearly every week during the past few years has featured a headline about the latest data breach, malware attack, ransomware demand, or unrecoverable corporate data loss. Those stories are frequently followed by news that the CEOs at those companies were forced to resign.

I have a customer who needs MS Teams for his day-to-day work but cannot use it because the Audio and speakers are muted. He says his laptop won't allow him to unmute the Audio. I'm looking for ways to help him but I don't have a clue where to start.

Many thanks

Skype for Business - migrating to Microsoft as a PROVIDER:
I'm migrating several thousand users from a 3rd party provider to Microsoft, as support ends April 1st:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/legal-and-regulatory/end-of-integration-with-3rd-party-providers  

Question:  when migrating to Microsoft, the Subject and/or Location field are configured with old bridge numbers, which isn't updated when switching over to Microsoft, only the body of the email is.  Is there anyway of automating this - or is there a best practice by Microsoft when creating online meetings and such to NOT use these fields?  

Thanks in advance Experts!

Renew Lync Group Chat certificates.
Our internal Chat server cert recently expired. Skype for business group chat has stopped working.
Skype for business 2010.
Does anyone know how to renew a certificate between the Chat server and the Lync server ?
Both are housed internally in our building.

Thanks!

We are looking into detecting when users initiated a screen-share or remote control using the popular Conference programs out there. We are looking to detect this so we can then build some controls and alerts around the policy we want to enforce.
Note: We do not want to prevent the users from joining any of these business related conferences. We are just interested in Screenshares/remote controls.
Some popular common Apps used/needed for typical business are
VNC
Skype
RingCentral Meeting
Zoom
Logmein
Teamviewer
Webex
Cisco Virtual Meeting
join.me
BlueJeans

If you have quality of service set up on your network for Skype for Business Online/O365, do you need to make changes in order to accommodate Microsoft Teams? Or is teams just a layer on top of Skype but using the same protocols etc?

Need to get SfB conversation History for a particular user. We have Exchange 2016 On Prem. SfB is also On prem. Is there a PowerShell command?

we have been asked to implement a skype for business server for one of our clients.

I will confess straight away that I have no experience with skype at all, so my initial request will be somewhat fundamental!

Having looked at a few videos of the installation and setup of skype for business server, they all seem to imply that we need a complete new server. My question is therefore, do we need to purchase a complete new server along with windows server OS, or can we add this to an existing server?

The client in question already has 2 servers, one is a windows 2012 server running hyperv, which supports a domain controller / file server, and one additional file server. In addition we have a stand alone exchange 2010 server.

Would skype for business server run on say the lesser used file server, or even our domain controller, or would we need to add additional hardware whit Windows server OS etc to host this facility.

Any advice very much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Prepare for the CompTIA Network+ exam by learning how to troubleshoot, configure, and manage both wired and wireless networks.

We are having a strange issue with our Skype for Business.
Its been running just fine for sometime now but we have some external clients that are having an issue with our Skype ids.
What's happening is that we can send them a skype message and they receive it, but when the try to reply back to us, it eventually times out for them, and we don't get their reply.
Also when they bring up their list of other clients including ours, ours show up as status, Presence Unknown
Does anyone know what I can check to see why our IDs would be appearing to them as Presence Unknown?

I have 1000+ users that still use 3rd party audio conferencing with Skype for Business.  
I see that these have to be moved over to Microsoft by April 1st:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/legal-and-regulatory/end-of-integration-with-3rd-party-providers
I need to get a list of all current users and what provider they have assigned, then migrate from a list.
Referencing this:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/skype/get-csonlinedialinconferencinguserinfo?view=skype-ps - I'm getting errors:
Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfo -Filter {Provider -eq "InterCall"} -First 10

Open in new window

Cmdlet invocation error
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfo], CmdletInvocationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Error processing cmdlet request,Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Hosted.Cbd.GetCsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfoCmdlet
    + PSComputerName        : admin0a.online.lync.com
Or, if I run:  
Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfo -Select ConferencingProviderOther

Open in new window

- I only get a limited number of results back and there is no "resultsize" filter available.

Or if I try to gather from this command, I'm only getting around 50 results back, and there is no "resultsize" filter available.
Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfo -Select NoFilter | select displayname, provider 

Open in new window


Any help is greatly appreciated.
