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.

Restoring Lync 2013 topology

I have created a video, showing how you may restore the topology with a backup created with the Lync 2013 backup script v3.5

The video is about 6 minutes long, and shows a restore of my lab in real time. 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
    • Domain rights to write to computer ojects
  • Things to look out for (warnings and errors)
  • A quick troubleshooting (where to find the logs)
As always, you can find the script right here.
