Microsoft Office 365 Support and Recovery Assistant

Microsoft announced the first public beta of the Office 365 Support and Recovery Assistant is now available.

The Office 365 Support and Recovery Assistant helps users troubleshoot and fix their account or profile related Outlook issues. The assistant performs a series of diagnostics tests to identify the root cause of issues, such as verifying users’ credentials, licenses, updates to Outlook clients, and whether Outlook servers are reachable. Depending on the test results, it can offer to automatically fix problems for users or provide instruction on recommended solutions. All the diagnostics results are saved in a log file for users to share with their Outlook admin or support engineers for further investigation. Each time you run Office 365 Support and Recovery Assistant, it automatically gets updated to its latest version, so it can troubleshoot any new Outlook problems.

This session allows you to gain deep understanding of the Exchange Server 2013 and 2016 architecture and is a “must-attend” session to begin your own design.

What’s New in Exchange 2013

Here we go – very interesting Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 webcast about a new rich set of technologies, features, and services to the Exchange Server.

Exchange Server 2013 architecture has been re-engineered to reduce the total cost of ownership whether you deploy Exchange 2013 on-premises or provision your mailboxes in the cloud.

In this webcast, Scott Schnoll discusses the new architecture and functionality in Exchange Server 2013, that enable organizations to implement Office365 integration, as well as SharePoint and Lync cloud services, and provide more of high availability to the messaging infrastructure.

As far as I currently implement Office365 and Exchange On-premises infrastructure integration project for one of our customers – discussing the topic is very welcome!

Виртуализация Exchange Server

В настоящее время множество инсталляций Exchange Server проводятся в виртулизованной среде. Это позволяет тщательнее загружать аппаратные ресурсы серверов, дает большую гибкость и стандартизацию развертывания серверных платформ. И Exchange Server, как один из важнейших серверов современных организаций тоже не исключение. Здесь рассказывается о “best practices” рекомендациях Microsoft по виртуализации систем почтового документооборота, о том, когда следует и не следует виртуализировать Exchange. А также разница между собственными механизмами отказоустойчивости Exchange Server и средствами обеспечения высокой доступности от виртуализации серверов.
