TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2016) - 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’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, 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.

lcs 2005 revisited - ew

For the morbidly curious, in support of the LCS 2005 Migration Document project, I have been building (yet another) lab.

As of now, I have a fully functional (no PSTN :( ) LCS 2005 SP1 pool, Access Proxy, sited behind an ISA 2006.  And it connected first time through from my home network via the AP.

All this goodness running under Hyper-V.

Servers are ws03 r2 sp2.

Client is currently OC2005 on XP and OC2005 on win7beta.

A few notes:

WS03 r2 SP2 breaks ISA 2006 (I had forgotten).  This requires two separate reg hacks (disable RSS and Task offload)

Hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\tcpip\parameters [dword EnableRSS = 0] [DisableTaskOffload = 1]

DNS stinks for LCS.

Certs came from a standalone CA on the DC.  An enterprise CA would not give me private keys on the certs unless I moved the DC to Server Enterprise which I was unwilling to do.

It is amazing what we have to re-learn at times, eh wot?

Technical Consulting

Something went through both of my brain cells today. And to keep a long story short, it centers on your approach to the question – whatever ...
