About Me

My Photo
TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Principal Consulting Engineer" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

· Several issues that cause Lync for Mac 2011 to sign out unexpectedly or to crash

YMMV.

ForeFront for Lync

A little delayed (well, more than a little) but still very welcome!  ForeFront for Lync 2010 is here (cue Steve Martin running down the street screaming about the phone book).

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2694730

Make a point of reading the caveats/issues/hints and how to deploy – this is not as clean as you would think.

YMMV.
