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

Backup Skype For Business V4_2

There hasn't been a need for many updates to this tool, as it seems to be working just fine on most installations. It was however time to release v4.2 with a few corrections and additions, and here are the highlights of this release:

New features:
  • Selective Backup: 7 new switches to take control over what to back up: Basic, Rgs, UserData, FileStore, Databases, PersistantChat and Certificate. Exclusion switches for databases and filestores works with these new switches as before. Not using any of the new switches will invoke the backup routine as before, including everything discovered.

  • Removed Debugging code: Reduced size of script
  • Tweaked filestore backup options: Added exclusion of WinFabFiles as default, and the option to keep them if required
  • DfsrPrivate: Reports of errors when backing up from a DFS fileshare, Added an exclusion to prevent the error.
  • Code Cleanup to make the parameter sets more readable
As always, the script can be found by following the link in my menu above, or simply by clicking here.

Back up Skype for Business, and sleep well :)

All I need now, is to write a gui wrapper ;)
