G Suite tutorials | GAM 02 – A very quick cmd crash course

The second part of the G Suite tutorial videos for GAM

In this video it is not GAM or G Suite talk. It is a very quick crash course for Windows CLI cmd.exe. GAM is a command-line tool, so some basic knowledge is required before we go on with the series.

In this video I talk about the following points:

  1. What is cmd.exe or Windows command line.
  2. How to access and launch cmd.exe
  3. Some basic operations.
  4. Navigating directories in cmd.exe.
  5. Executing scripts and batches in cmd.exe.
  6. Passing scripts output to a text file or CSV file.
  7. Accessing or editing text files through cmd.exe.

IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH CMD.EXE THEN SKIP THIS. THIS IS VERY BASIC STUFF FOR WHO IS NOT FAMILIAR WITH IT!

When Exchange Server rejects incoming email with: 452 4.3.1 Insufficient system resources

Intro

So we were working on a project for a customer who has 6 Exchange servers, 3 CAS and 3 MBX. The customer have an Exchange Server 2013 organization and about 200 users.

Basically it all sounded easy and quick project, however their Exchange Server has other saying on this! After we configured the co-existence scenario on their Exchange Server, we had an issue where their local anti-spam application started to block incoming email messages from Google.

This is a normal behavior of course as those emails might be considered spoofed emails. So we added Google IP address ranges for outbound SMTP.

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.
