Get-DPMDisk.ps1

#DPM #Powershell

I wanted to share this with you.  The other morning I lost half a disk array which knocked out my DPM server.  So I wanted a script that would show me the status of the DPM disks, and I wanted to run it centrally.

I came up with this: .. let me know what you think

#Lync Ignite

So, just finished the 5 day Lync Ignite at Global Knowledge, and it was okay.  The labs are really good (when they work) and the courseware is okay (a lots of sales stuff and not updated for RTM!)

So here are some of the links and ramblings I made … enjoy

Links

Takeaways

  • Private line – can only receive calls .. Can’t make them.
  • Bandwidth 1 hd session = t1
  • MMC gone, now silverlight. No right click!
  • Lync Standard Edition – all roles and SQL on same server.
  • James O’Neil OCS powershell module!
  • RBAC used for permissions
  • Call park to park Lync calls
  • Potentially 50% reduction in severs when you virtualise
  • CMS = SQL
  • Lync will have NO service packs?!
  • Test call option in the lync client
  • LIS used for location services
  • Zero Day is a new book by Mark Russinovich
  • DNS LB: Client gets all the dns addresses and works out which on to use.
  • SBA: cheaper than having a separate lync server

Powershell

  • Powershell is a Microsoft task automation platform
  • Powershell v3 is coming

Import-module lync
(get-help *-cs*).count
Out-host –paging
Import-module ActiveDirectory

Installation

  • Install-CSAdServerSchema
  • Enable-CSAdForest
  • Enable-CSAdDomain

How to increase the number of allowed address book connection requests in #Exchange 2010

#Exchange2010 #BlackBerry

http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB23499

Yeah, yeah before you start I know there are a million blog entries out there saying this but, they don’t really.  With Exchange Server 2010 MaxSessionsPerUser doesn’t exist in microsoft.exchange.addressbook.service.exe.config

This KB clarifies this .. the important bit is “must be added manually”

Note: Under Microsoft Exchange 2010, SP1, this value is no longer included in the microsoft.exchange.addressbook.service.exe.config file. The MaxSessionsPerUser (i.e. MaxSessionsPerUser=100000) value must be manually added to the file and set to the desired number of connections.

Intermittent mail delivery issues are experienced on #BlackBerry smartphones

#Exchange #Exchange2010 .. stumbled on this.  We are using F5 LTM’s to front our Cas Arrays .. the workaround is really rubbish!

Intermittent mail delivery issues are experienced on BlackBerry smartphones when Microsoft Exchange is configured behind a load balancing appliance

http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB22812&sliceId=1&docTypeID=DT_SUPPORTISSUE_1_1&dialogID=1057961473&stateId=0


Users receive a red X when sending new email or replying to emails from their BlackBerry smartphones in what appears to be a random pattern. If an affected user sends the message again, it is delivered.

In environments that incorporate hardware or software load balancing appliances, such as Big-IP, Barracuda, or F5, issues can be encountered in which sporadic error messages regarding reaching users’ mailboxes or performing basic communication functions appear in both Windows Event Viewer and the BlackBerry Messaging Agent (MAGT) debug logs. These error messages are typically repetitive and occur approximately every 5 to 7 minutes once the initial issue is encountered.

… Workaround .. Bypass the hardware load balancer with a hosts file entry so that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server may communicate directly with a single Client Access Server.

WHAT!
