TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John was a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2018) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, 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.


OCS 2007 passwords

Just had serious fun with a failing install of OCS SE.

Ended up being service account passwords that had a space in them.

WOW.  You gotta be kidding me.

There are a variety of hotfix and QFE and updates that purportedly fix this, but how the fsck are you supposed to get that stuff in place when the silly thing won't even finish the install?

AAR, changed the passwords and now we are good.




OCS 2007 and ISA 2006

Do you have a need to publish the various OCS 2007 components to the internet for remote users, federation, PIC and the like?

Go here for an awesome tutorial on how to accomplish this.
