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 User Data demo

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

The video is less than 2 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 are the same as previous demos. 
  • I have chosen to do an update rather than a full import
  • Service can be running during an import
  • User should log out and back in after the update is complete
As always, you can find the script right here.
