Join Teams work meetings from Microsoft Teams (free) and vice versa

Microsoft Teams (Free) users can currently join Teams for work (or school) meetings only as guests, which requires them to use a browser and results in a sub-optimal experience. The new feature rolling out will allow these users to join Teams for work (or school) meetings in one click, without being redirected to the browser or asked to fill in their name/surname. They will also be able to continue collaborating with the meeting organizer and other participants via meeting chat after the meeting.  The feature will work in the opposite way as well, so Teams for work (or school) will just as easily be able to join meetings hosted by a Teams Free user with one click.

An update to the Lync 2013 Enterprise Backup script

I have now updated the Backup script for Lync 2013 Enterprise to support a topology with a mirrored back-end server (SQL). The script is tested on systems with and without a mirror configuration.

Also, the script is updated to take backup of the persistent chat server. If none is deployed in your topology, either ignore the error message, or REM out that part of the script.

Thanks to Dino Caputo for alerting about the error in my script!!

The script can be found right here, and the other links are all updated.

Thanks... Works Fine.

I'm going to try and use this script in an environment with multiple sites. I will share my findings with you once completed. I believe I can encapsulate most of the content within a foreach loop starting with the $fqdnLyncpool variable, since that cmdlet returns more than one value.
