  • Haiku #183

    In case you're wondering, the author of this haiku did not attempt to ride up the 9400 foot mountain. He did, however, run the Lync Server CsDatabase commands.

  • Haiku #194

    An era comes to an end. And what better way to end than with CsCertificate cmdlets.

  • Haiku #192

    It's football season here in the U.S., and the Seattle area is feeling the pain. In addition, the world will soon feel the pain of the end of the Lync Server PowerShell daily haikus. On the bright side, you'll have 194 haikus to look back on fondly and revisit whenever you want.

  • Haiku #191

    The haiku writer got up on the wrong side of the traffic jam this morning. But that didn't stop him from expounding on the virtues of the CsClientPolicy cmdlets. Still, it's probably a good thing this haiku was written on a Friday.

  • Haiku #190

    Today's haiku is a commentary on professional baseball. There's also something in there about Lync Server PowerShell cmdlets and Response Groups. If you have feedback on Response Groups or Baseball Hall of Fame inductees, we'd love to hear it.

  • Haiku #189

    It's not witchcraft, it's just Lync Server trusted applications. No magic involved.

  • Haiku #182

    It looks like the writers of this haiku should be taking even more vacation. But in the meantime, here's a haiku (and article) about the Lync Server CsStaticRoutingConfiguration cmdlets.

  • Lync Server PowerShell September 2011 Wrap-Up

    Summer is over, fall is here. Unless you're in the southern hemisphere, which we're not. But no matter where you are, another month has passed, which can mean only one thing: it's time for the Lync Server PowerShell blog month-end wrap up. This month along with our usual wrap-up stuff we have a quick tip for you on finding the most up-to-date PowerShell help.

  • Haiku #185

    There are no eyelashes on the CsOutboundTranslationRule cmdlets, but it turns out they don't really need them. Your car, however, might be another story.

  • Haiku #188

    There are some Lync Server cmdlets that you'll probably never find a need to use, not even on a closed course with a professional driver. Test-CsCertificateConfiguration is one of those cmdlets. Want to know why you'll probably never use it? Read this article.

  • Haiku #184

    At Microsoft we spend a lot of time talking about herding cats. It turns out that border collies must be a lot smarter than Microsoft employees, because they herd sheep, which makes much more sense than herding cats. On the other hand, border collies don't know a lot about managing audio conferencing providers with Lync Server, whereas Microsoft employees...wait, never mind.

  • Haiku #193

    Please don't harm any trees while reading this haiku. The haiku writer seems to have done enough damage as it is. Instead, try out the CsDeviceUpdateRule cmdlets.

  • Haiku #187

    Daily hiking, biking, and blue skies are overrated. There's nothing to keep you going like a good haiku. Or a haiku about the Lync Server CsClientVersionPolicyRule cmdlets.

  • Haiku #186

    This haiku is about a life a hiking and biking and almost no traffic. It also mentions something about a set of Lync Server cmdlets you'll never, ever want to use.

  • Lync Server PowerShell August 2011 Wrap-Up

    Hey, we're all busy. With Tweets and Facebook postings and RSS feeds all flying around everywhere, you're bound to miss something here and there. So we've provided a handy wrap-up of everything that happened at the Lync Server PowerShell blog in August 2011. We like to think you wouldn't want this to be one of the things you missed. (You don't need to take the time to tell us if we're mistaken, we know you're busy.)
