This is a blog for John Weber. One of my joys in life is helping others get ahead in life. Content here will be focused on that from this date forward. John was a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2018) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). I used to write a variety of articles (https://tsoorad.blogspot.com) on technical issues with a smattering of other interests. 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. 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.
