Azure: Azcopy error : Failed to validate destination

When you try to upload files into Azure using AzCopy command line you ca encounter this error:
Failed to validate destination: One or more errors occurred. The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.


Before you start pulling hair from your head just uninstall new version of AzCopy and install an old one.
For me, the latest working version is 5.0


Migration between two Office 365 tenants

In the era of cloud solutions, soon or later we will face the challenge of connecting two of them together. Merges and acquisitions of companies which possess separate cloud IT infrastructure needs to be joined, unified and also simplified if possible. Using experience after few successful migrations, I will try to explain here the most important things to consider in similar projects, when Office356 is involved. This is not step by step instruction – only lessons learned from the migration field. At the beginning - things which appears every time you plan a change in the organization. Determine customer expectations and goalsThe most important thing, which – when chasing for time and money some people forget - the success of the project depends on the fulfilment of customer expectations.

manage-bde -protectors -get c:

2.Make a backup to AD for selected ID
manage-bde -protectors -adbackup c: -id {enter id of Numerical Password ID here}



If you see below error



this means that AD is not correctly set - computer has no permission to save backup to AD.

How to install features on Windows 2008R2 core ?
Just use dism.

Cannot install updates - broken update blocks another - driver update error 0x80240017

When you encounter problem with update for printer you no longer using, you probably go to device manager and want to remove it. But you cannot found it, because it was installed automatically without your decision. Now, drivers still exists in the register, but cannot be updated. Below you can find update error for HP M1530 that I was using.
So, let's fix it. First, you need to show non-present devices
Check in device manager now if this printer/device is shown. If yes - remove it. Next, go to register and remove any connection/driver for this printer/device in HKLM\System\\CurrentConterolSet\Control\Print



Restart computer and check register one more time if this entries are not exist anymore.
Then you can check updates.
Finally, my updates are working. 


Office365: Removing all Exchange aliases from user accounts - moving from/to O365

In order to remove the domain form the Office365 subscription,  you need to delete all aliases.
There are many articles on the subject, how to remove one alias, but no data about how to remove ALL aliases from ALL accounts.
This little script will help you when you need to move to another O365 tenant or from cloud to on premises Exchange.

$alias = Get-Mailbox -resultsize unlimited

foreach($x in $alias)
{
$x.emailaddresses = $x.userprincipalname
Set-mailbox $x.alias -emailaddresses $x.emailaddresses
}


Office365: Change public folder default quota limit

Hi,
In the Exchange Organisation, there are quotas per Public Folder mailbox for the items ...

..and as a whole organisation:
If you receiving warnings about quota when using public folder, then you need to change organisation wide settings. For this example we have had DefaultPublicFolderIssueWarningQuota set to 1.7GB and DefaultPublicFolderProhibitPostQuota set to 2GB. Now, we change it to 35 and 40GB respectively:

And all is set now!
