I'll be on me best behavior!


Anyone good with Biztalk? I've installed a test environment as we're evaluating different ESBs and I'm running into a dumb error trying to deploy a solution from Visual Studio to Biztalk. This is the first time I touch Biztalk, so I'm basically fumbling in the dark.

I have Biztalk Server 2016 (developer ed) on one server, SQL Server 2014 (developer ed) on another server, and a tools server with Visual Studio Community 2015. They're all on the same subnet, so no firewalls between them.

The solution is just two file ports, two schemas and a transformation that just concatenates two fields from the receive port and puts it out on the send port.

The class ID referenced is the SSOConfigStore Class, and I've confirmed it's registered on all three servers.

They would never do something that would make less money....

Our EDI software which we run over remote desktop is licensed this way.

So we have 70 seats for that... But then need 120+ RDS User CALs to cover every user that connects to it.

Floating licenses is the best, but also are typically expensive. I hate managing licenses.

Is anybody testing Azure Files Sync?

Anyone have experience with Exchange on-prem to Exchange Online remote move migration? I inherited a migration project and I would like it to not go sideways. The hybrid connectors already setup and a couple people have been moved. My main question revolves around the actual "cutover" and "finalization" of the migration. More specifically at this time around the Dynamic distribution lists.

So we are moving from Exchange 2010 to Online. The technet article in regards to dynamic distribution lists here : https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj150422(v=exchg.141).aspx states

quote:

On the Filter tab, select The following specific types, and then click to select the Users with Exchange mailboxes and the Users with external e-mail addresses check boxes."

So options in the filter tab doesn't exist for us because it was created in powershell. Does anyone know a way around this? I was looking at the powershell commands for Exchange 2010 and it looks like this is might not be configurable through that (although it is configurable in the later versions of Exchange powershell cmdlets.) I guess a workaround is to just open up the distribution list to "non authenticated" users but there might be some concern although I doubt external users will find out/try sending to the list.

Secondly, I guess the best method would be to migrate everyone over, then re-create all the Dynamic distribution lists as regular mail enabled non dynamic distribution lists on prem, have it sync over to Exchange online, then have all users wipe their local cache (so they're not emailing the old dynamic distribution list through their cache.)

How would meeting rooms best be handled? Before or after? I was part of a migration in the past and I believe all the previous meeting schedules were essentially non changeable. Not sure if it was a gently caress up on the admin side or if this was just a result of migration.

Any advice or gotchas would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I'm hoping that seeing as it preserves permissions that means we aren't far away from actual NTFS permissions working in Azure Files.

Question for those doing Hyper-V clusters.

If you had 6 Hyper-V physical hosts, why would you create a 6 node cluster vs 3x2 node cluster?

depends on what you plan to put on them. you might consider a 4 node and a 2 node if for instance you want to license the 2 node at the physical level for SQL but don't want to license all 6 or something like that.

Are you doing Hyper-Converged, SAN or Scale out FS for the storage backend?

With a single large cluster, you're reserving the resources of one host to maintain operations in a single host failure. If you make that in to two clusters, two hosts worth of resources needs to be reserved, doubling overhead. If they're all using either the same shared storage array or some kind of vSAN I would say you're better off with the single cluster and using some old hardware around for dev to test upgrades. If you have two different storage arrays to drive each cluster, then split them up.

Do people still use dumpsec for file permission reports or is there something better out there now? PowerShell?

One thousand times this. Old job used SCCM, current job was SMS then went to LANDESK because of the cost. I still wish they would have spent the money on SCCM or just went with PDQ.

At one point, even one of the IT Directors had trialed PDQ long after having purchased/approved implementation of LANDESK and was impressed by how well it worked.

Does anybody do much with Intune? There's two methods for configuring certain features:

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com...management-yes/

But no real explanation given as to what is 'better', or what the implications of configuring through CSPs as opposed to the UI options is.

Does anybody know?

Anyone have any experience with BinaryTree's software offering for domain/e-mail migrations? We're looking into it and it looks very promising, but I'd love to hear some input from customers.

This would be used for ongoing domain collapses and migrations as part of acquisitions, which seems to be their wheelhouse.

We used SmartMigrator on a 4500 user un-trusted AD migration (Company A sold a division to Competitor B, we got to do the Mail and AD migration). It works pretty darn well. But the UI is horrid, group sync is painfully slow and they don;t really provide for any automation hooks into the product. We were able to reverse engineer a few things to plug it into our pre-existing framework for migrations but we have requests in for them to build out some PowerShell capabilities. It didn't handle the O365 Tenant to Tenant part of the ad migration very well (we used BitTitan to actually migrate the mailboxes) but they have made improvements there.

Any specific scenarios/questions you're interested in?

Tenant-to-tenant migrations are horrible in every way, I remain hopeful that Microsoft address the underlying need for them to even happen and can work on some sort of temporary federation with mailbox move for instances where companies merge/split and are both using Office 365.

I'd *almost* rather hybrid it and move all the mailboxes out, federate the directories, move the poo poo over, and then hybrid it all back in again.

Hell, all we did was change our company name. Microsoft said it would cost no less then $40,000 to change our name in Office365/SharePoint with the level of oversight that there wouldn't be production stopping bugs afterwards, 20k for the proprietary tool to do it and 20k for the labor. To this day we use the new name for emails, but still use @OldCompanyName.com for O365 sign-ins and SSO.

You can change your domains as much as you want, but you can never change your .onmicrosoft.com domain, which is used in SharePoint and seen if you share OneDrive files.

Be sure to read the fine print, they will absolutely not give you an inch more than what is on the scope. Don't forget to include anything in the scope if you're paying for their services. I only have experience with the lotus notes to exchange on prem product and it was good even though it had a lot of "ifs"
