Often we have to troubleshoot routing and firewall rules as seen from a client on a internal client subnets. I use PSEXEC and PORTQRY from Microsoft. This will work if it is a Windows pc and I have permissions to connect to it. Run these commands from a server in the server lan
I try to check if the port is open from the client to server (10.10.10.100) :
Tried to move a mailbox from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2013, but the job would take forever. Status for the job was “StalledDueToCI” ( Get-MoveRequest | Get-MoveRequestStatistics | ft mailboxidentity,status ). I suspected this had something to do with ContentIndexing. And infact it does. Tried to reset Search index for the database containing the failed mailbox.
To reset Exchange search index for a database:
1.Stop Exchange search services:
2.Delete the search folder. Usually a folder inside the folder containing the database.
3.Start Exchange search service.
4. Check Index crawler status to see when it has finished: Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus -Server <servername>| FL Name,*Index*
This worked for some short time. But it would fall back to failed.
This is my HolidaySet editor for Lync 2013/2010 RGS. It is created in Powershell. This is version 1.1 and is working “Perfectly” in my environment. Code needs som tidying up and commenting. Please do not copy, but link to it since I will update it with more info and features.
Are you looking for a replacement for TMG now that its end is nearing. You could buy a thirdparty reverseproxy from Sophos og some appliance. The simplest solution is probably to install a Windows server 2012(R2) and add ARR module to IIS.
When you start the Lync Client and won’t get past “Contacting server..” ,and it never time’s out. It can be worth checking time on client and servers. Other users can sign in to Lync, even on the same PC. It will not help removing Lync client certificate, or reset password. Solution here is to check date and time on Lync server and Client – if it is Office365 it is your Client that has wrong time.
