Celebrating 10 Years as a Microsoft MVP

Back from my vacation, I am thrilled to share that I have been awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for the 10th consecutive year. In addition to being recognized as an expert within Teams, I am have also been recognized as an expert with Microsoft Copilot. This means a lot to me.  Being an MVP has been an incredibly rewarding journey, both personally and professionally. It has provided me with countless opportunities to grow, learn, and connect with like-minded professionals who share a passion for technology and innovation.  The award is not just a title; it's a testament to the hard work, dedication, and contributions to the tech community. It's a privilege to be part of such an esteemed group of individuals who share the same love for technology, and sharing their knowledge about it.  As I reflect on the past decade, I am thankful for the experiences and knowledge I've gained. This recognition motivates me to continue sharing my expertise, mentor

Restore Lync 2013 Persistent Chat demo

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

The video is about 3 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
    • (A quick recap for those who have not seen the previous posts)
  • Remember to stop service first. 
As always, you can find the script right here.
