#MSExchange 2010 SP3 Released

Published at February 15, 2013 ·  1 min read

Exchange 2010 SP3 is here. Woo-hoo! Oh wait, there’s some gotcha’s. What do you need to know? First, it doesn’t give you the ability to migrate from 2010 to 2013, yet. It does support co-existence with Exchange 2013 CU1 (Cumulative Update). You can test migrations with RTM in a lab setting but this is unsupported in production. Second, once you move a mailbox database to an Exchange 2010 server with SP3 installed, you can no longer move it back to a pre-SP3 server....

#AudioCodes Mediant 800 SBA and #Lync 2013

Published at February 15, 2013 ·  2 min read

A week or so ago, I was in the middle of deploying an AudioCodes Mediant 800 at a remote site. The device had the Lync SBA installed as well. We were trying to get the SBA to work with our Lync 2013 deployment. This is just to document the issues we ran into. ***NOTE: The gateway must be updated to version 6.6 prior to upgrading the SBA. First, an SBA that is based on Lync 2010 cannot be an SBA for a Lync 2013 Front-end....

Lync 2013: What's new in Persistent Chat (Cross-post)

Published at January 22, 2013 ·  1 min read

One of the reasons I don’t post very often here anymore is because I write blog posts for my employer (PEI). Here is a Lync 2013 post I did on Persistent Chat: Lync 2013: What’s New in Persistent Chat I’m trying to post up new articles here but figure I can point folks back to some good articles over there as well.

Lync 2013 Refer Support

Published at January 16, 2013 ·  1 min read

This isn’t a major change, merely just a “if you aren’t paying attention it might just slide past you” type of thing. In Lync 2013, the option for Refer Support has changed from a Check-box to a Drop-down menu. Here is what it looks like in Lync Server 2010: And here is what it looks like in Lync Server 2013: Not really such a big deal but if you are just comparing check boxes between the two system, it can easily be over-looked....

VCP 5

Published at January 10, 2012 ·  1 min read

Well, I passed. I have to say, when I hit submit, I wasn’t really sure that I had. I love that screen when it says “Congratulations!” You are so focused on that word that it takes a minute to see what your score was (I got a 361). To any who see/read this that want to know what I did to pass, I read, alot. I seriously spent a lot of time just reading the documentation that is posted on vmware....

Lync Web Services through the Reverse Proxy

Published at December 22, 2011 ·  2 min read

As a Lync consultant, I get asked about what the Reverse Proxy does in the Lync Architecture frequently. I can always recite the basics off the top of my head such as Address Book download and Meeting Content but here is what actually is tied to it: * Enabling external users to download meeting content for your meetings. * Enabling external users to expand distribution groups. * Enabling remote users to download files from the Address Book service....
