I just published a 1 hour tutorial on Youtube that is talking about Google Cloud Directory Sync or GCDS. This tutorial is light an easy to follow. I used a scenario based approach to explain the steps and tasks that you need to do to configure it.

How to search and delete users email messages in their mailboxes before a specific date/time – Exchange 2010

Exchange Server logo

Little intro

I’ve got a case where the customer wanted to delete all of his users’ data in their mailboxes on the Exchange Server, that they got before 1-JAN-2018. He has an incident happened with some leaked critical email messages and he wanted to prevent it by taking this action!

The way to do this of course is pure PowerShell. So I first had to analyze the requirements then build an image in my brain for how the work is going to happen, then test it. And finally implement the needed changes.

Basically what I came to put together is, first I need to backup the data that I will delete. Then I need to delete the data.

To backup the data I need to export the mailboxes to a PST file. And the delete the data I have to use the Search-Mailbox cmdlet with -SearchQuery property.

That was the … Read the rest “How to search and delete users email messages in their mailboxes before a specific date/time – Exchange 2010”

What to do when New-MailboxExportRequest stuck on “Queued” status

Exchange Server logo

Intro

This is just the back story for this incident and the Exchange Server environment setup. Skip to The issue section for the actual stuff

I recently had a project started to migrate an Exchange Server 2010 organisation to G Suite. The customer had 4 (very old) servers, 2 DAG and 2 CAS. While we were preparing for the data migration phase we hit a very hard brick wall. 3 hard disks on one of the servers decided it was time for them to smoke. Luckily they had 6 disks on that server, and they were using RAID5. Few days after replacing these drives, another different drive on the same server followed its fallen brothers!

So they managed to keep their servers up and were quick to replace the damaged disks at the end. However this was not the case for the databases on the server. Once of the databases … Read the rest “What to do when New-MailboxExportRequest stuck on “Queued” status”

How to effectively manage your email with G Suite and Gmail

Today I needed to find some email in my Gmail… I usually either look for the email using search or if I know where it is I just go there. However when I was doing that, I monitored myself how I was getting to the email I want. At the same time I remembered few years ago before I start using G Suite and Gmail how long it will take me to do a search like this. Usually I’d have to wait for Outlook to index my messages, then do the search, then wait for the computer and Outlook to respond again! So it was really a very annoying process…

Within few seconds I was able to find what I wanted and move on to the next task. Gmail offers a lot of great features and flexibility. Once you know how to get the most out of your Gmail, you’ll … Read the rest “How to effectively manage your email with G Suite and Gmail”

How the IT team can make your G Suite project fail!

What is the IT role in a G Suite project?

First of all, the IT has nothing to do with making the decision of going G Suite… They may influence the decision but they don’t make it. Simply because this type of decisions is a business decision in the first place. The more critical job of the IT department is to facilitate this shift and transfer to a new philosophy and technology. The business management will see the product functions and usability through end users who are getting the support they need from IT.

So how are the IT going to affect our project?

End users will complain to IT for issues they face daily. And here comes the core problem. If the IT team are reluctant to work on this, or if they are incompetent in communications with the G Suite deployment team, the issue will sit unresolved for … Read the rest “How the IT team can make your G Suite project fail!”
