Copilot for PowerBI

Copilot for PowerBI is now coming out in preview, and the feature will be enabled for all tenants. The feature can enhance data interaction and report creation using generative AI. If the organization is not ready for this roll-out, there are ways to restrict this feature based on security groups. There are controls to include or exclude groups.  One concern organizations have is the possibility of data being processed in a datacenter in a different region than their tenant. This can also be controlled by not allowing the usage of datacenters outside your region. Sign into the admin portal for PowerBI and check the settings associated with Copilot

Restore a single Lync server from CsConfiguration Backup

In my previous video, I restored the entire CsConfiguration in order to recreate the correct SimpleURLs. In the following video I am showing how you may restore the configuration to a single Lync server, which has been taken offline. The backup was with the Lync 2013 backup script v3.5

The video has been trimmed to about 8 minutes long, and shows a restore of in my lab. The trimming has been done to shorten the time I had to wait through bootstrapper. It has no sound, but the CC will explain what's going on.

The important giveaways from this movie should be:
  • Permissions required to run Lync commands
  • Things to look out for
    • Use -LocalStore when targeting a single computer
  • A quick troubleshooting (where to find the logs)
As always, you can find the script right here.
