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.

Lync Server 2013 Cookbook

A new book on Lync Server 2013 is coming out soon.  This book is done up in different categorical task headings so you don’t have to read the entire book to find something useful.  Need some security pointers?  Head to chapter one.  Need to figure out some Enterprise Voice details?  Chapter three might just have your answer.  I found chapter nine to be a personal favorite.  And chapter 12 is a must read for anyone associated with any aspect of supporting Lync 2013 or 2010.

Here is a list of the chapters:

  1. Security
  2. Authentication
  3. Dial Plans and Voice Routing
  4. Integration with Exchange
  5. Tools and Scripts
  6. Designing Lync
  7. Resource Forest
  8. Hybrid and Lync Online
  9. Monitoring and Reporting
  10. Backup and Restore
  11. Controlling your Network
  12. Debugging

This book is not out yet; what I reviewed was a pre-copy provided by one of the co-authors, fellow Lync MVP Fabrizio Volpe. The author list, if you are curious:  Alessio Giombini, Antonio Vargas, Fabrizio Volpe, Lasse Nordvik Wedø. 

All in all, great stuff.  You can pre-order your very own copy here:
