Microsoft Copilot is all around...

  As the debut of Microsoft 365 Copilot approaches, there are a lot of Copilot features set to be introduced across the Microsoft 365 ecosystem. Here are a few noteworthy additions: Microsoft has unveiled a series of innovative features in the upcoming releases of Windows 11, some of them are already released, and some are currently available in preview builds. The Windows 11 Copilot, conveniently located in the taskbar, eliminates the need to open your Edge browser. It is seamlessly integrated with Bing Enterprise Chat (BEC) and ChatGPT, making it really easy to get started on your creative journey. Included in Windows 11 is the new co-creator feature in Paint.

New and improved (?) backup script for Lync 2013

Based on a couple of feedback's and my own experience with these backup scripts, I think it is about time to release the new and improved version.

Highlights include:

  • Bugfix to catch installations where you do not use a named SQL instance
  • Should be able to create backups from several pools when running the backup (not all services, but most important)
  • The same script will now run on both Standard and Enterprise edition.
I have not tested the script in too many multi-pool installations, and really appreciate feedback on the matter. I have tested it on both standard and enterprise version.

The script is signed, and should run on any server, unmodified.

Instead of sharing the script through Drop-box, I have posted it in the Technet Gallery, right here: Backupscript-Lync_2013_v3.ps1. It will give you an option to rate the script, or even discuss it.
