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

Document your Lync or Skype for Business deployment into HTML v 2_3 released

It's been more than a year since I updated my documentation script. Mostly because I haven't received much requests, and there hasn't really been many huge changes to Lync 2013.

But with the upcoming release of Skype for Business, I gave it a quick check.

There wasn't much to change, and I consider the update a minor one. If you have used earlier versions, you will find all the information in the same places (but slightly more on the domain list, and the user listing).

Here is a list of the highlighted updates for this version:
  • BUGFIX: NSLOOKUP now provides hostnames as well as pool names (hostnames were missing in previous versions)
  • New feature: List of users now sorts by assigned domain
  • New feature: List of domains shows user count
  • New feature: List EXT as a separate column (for easier reading)
  • CHANGE: No longer leaving all files in the folder. Zipping to a target, then deleting clutter. 
  • New feature: KEEPTemp switch to keep the clutter
  • BUGFIX: Added CsMeetingRoom (Missing in previous versions)
  • Tested on a Skype for Business Server (VIS server information NOT verified) If you have any feed back, please let me know
  • Change: New colors (I got bored with the old scheme)
