About Me

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.

Who can Federate tool

Situation

You want to demonstrate to a potential client who their users would want to federate with for business processes.

Possible Solution

MVP Matt Landis has written a nifty little utility…. http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Who-Can-Federate-Tool-a9e00d23

The WCF Tool (who can federate tool) will scan through your Outlook contacts and give you a "heads up" on which of your business partners have public Microsoft Lync or OCS federation enabled. This is a great tool to run for people who do or don't have Microsoft Lync to show them who they could connect with in their own contact list.

Useful, eh?  This worked nicely for me – found several on my contact list that I had not thought about.

YMMV

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 ...
