TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is 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’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.

Exchange 2010 public folder custom forms

Kudos to Dustin Rush, NAC Architecture

We are in the midst of an e2003-e2010 migration, and the customer has a custom contact form in the organization forms library.  Regular public folder replication created the requisite public folder structure on the e2010.  The custom form sort of worked in that new items in the contact list used the custom form, that data was intact, but viewing existing contact cards in the public folder reverted to the OOBE view.

Various efforts at enforcing the custom form from Outlook proved fruitless. 

Dashing Dustin found this tool (DocMessageClass) that allowed us to modify the object attribute for each of the contacts in the public folder.  The process took very little time – maybe 3-4 minutes for 10k+ objects.

What Vacation Taught me

I took vacation this year; a formal thing with travel, schedule coordination, planned activities, and days full of interacting with others. ...
