O365 – FYI

Free/Busy will not work in Exchange Hybrid environment unless 1 of the below is true:

1) AutoD is configured and working

2) Exchange Server are same version. For ex. onprem Exchange 2010 SP3 and O365 Wave 15 (Exchange 2013) will NOT work. You can only implement a TargetSharingEpr with Exchange server matching versions onprem & O365.

Error “StalledDueToMailboxLock” when moving mailboxes to #Office365 in hybrid configuration

Found this link on twitter as I follow Exchange Server Pro@ExchServPro (great tips and articles always) who got it (via @mvanhorenbeeck) . I got this same error twice but when I did a move to O365 and used the ‘Suspend When Ready to Complete’ switch. Good information and suggestions in this article. Kudos and Thanks!!!

Learn PowerShell!!! Great article by Tim Bolton

Learn PowerShell!!! Great article by Tim Bolton

Yet another great illustration of why PowerShell isn’t a luxury but a necessity for today’s sys admin. It’s funny to me how many admins still balk at this idea and refuse to learn PowerShell. The argument ‘I am a windows admin because i can do my job from a Gui’ is obsolete and doesn’t fly nowadays. We all get asked to perform many tasks in a short period of time. PowerShell is often(99.99%) the quickest solution to perform these tasks aka ‘Your Job’.
