Podcast 334 - Hold my Beer

Glory be! There will be another on-prem version of SharePoint, so says Microsoft. We start out this week's podcast with that good news. Of course it's all downhill from there, but we soldier on. DirSync (the product) is no longer supported, so we talk about what ways companies can keep their Windows Active Directory in sync with Azure Active Directory. We cover some new characters that can be used in file names with SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. We also talk about how to recover deleted Office 365 Groups, and in what scenarios you might accidentally delete one. We finish up talking about Shane's new keyboard. Talk about a strong finish.

Can’t Delete Accounts from OneDrive for Business Next Gen Sync Client

As anyone that listens to my podcast knows, I’m a fan of both the Consumer and For Business versions of OneDrive. I use it for a lot of my personal file syncing as well as with several Office 365 tenants, both production and test. Some of that is Production, some of it is with demo tenants. In the last couple of months I’ve stumbled across an unbelievable gap in the product, you can’t delete a OneDrive for Business (ODFB) account that you can’t log in to from the Windows Next Gen Sync Client. (NGSC).

You can delete OneDrive (consumer) accounts. And you can delete a ODFB account if you’re logged into it. Both of those show up on the Accounts tab of the Sync Client Settings page. But if you can’t log into the Office 365 account you’re syncing to, you can’t delete it. It’s stuck in this weird purgatory where the folders still show up in Explorer, but the blue icon for the account doesn’t show up in the system tray. It’s very confusing.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to delete some stale accounts for a while and it was inconceivable to me that that wasn’t possible. Today, I finally swallowed my pride and reached out for help. I tweeted the official (pronounced “Oh-FISHeeal”) OneDrive Twitter account. If they can’t help me, no one can. They have a blue check mark! This was their response:

I can’t find it because it’s not there! But, they do offer a solution, we can vote for this feature (really, deleting an account is a “feature”) on User Voice. It doesn’t cost anything but your time, and each vote you cast will bring me closer to my nirvana of being able to purge all the unused ODFB folders from my PC.

Vote early, vote often.

Thanks for your support.

I’m Speaking Office 365 Engage

Over the years I’ve had the fortune to hang out with some of the best and brightest people in my industry. I’m happy to report that trend is continuing. I will be speaking at Office 365 in Haarlem, Netherlands June 19-22 2017. This conference is such a big deal they even made me these fancy banners to put on my web site:

Todd Klindt 300x200

Isn’t that fancy! If you’d like to go to Office 365 you can use SPRTK483 as a discount code to get 10% off the price of admission.

While I’m a SharePoint and Office 365 kinda guy, there are a bunch of great technologies being covered here. There are experts in Azure, Exchange, SharePoint, Office 365, both in Infrastructure and Development. If you work on Microsoft technologies, there is someone here you can learn from.

I’ll be doing two sessions, Mastering PowerShell with Office 365 and Beginning Azure AD Identity for SharePoint and Office 365 Administrators. Both classes will be chock full of useful content you can put to work right away. Both sessions also have deeper follow-up sessions by other speakers so you can dig in deeper if you’d like.

So, consider coming to Office 365 Engage, and if you do, please come find me and introduce yourself. I love meeting new people. Smile

PowerShell Training with Me

Are you a SharePoint or Office 365 admin that wants to take their PowerShell mojo up another step? Are you a Windows admin that knows they need to master PowerShell but don’t know where to start? Are you someone with a lot of time on their hands and want to spend some of their employer’s training budget? Have I got good news for you! Shane and I are putting on two 90 minute PowerShell classes on Thursday April 20th. Shane will take the first session where he’ll cover how to get PowerShell set up exactly the way you’d like as well as a foundation of the core cmdlets you should know and love. He’ll also help you understand PowerShell scripts that you steal learn from on the web.

Then I take the wheel for part 2. I’ll cover looping techniques to help you make the most of those delicious objects that PowerShell serves up for us. Next I’ll move on to how to deal with a variety of files, both writing to and reading from. I show you how to write your first scripts and how to securely deal with passwords. For my big finale I’ll show how to do some basic Active Directory tasks.

I know, I know, this seems like a lot to take in in two 90 minute sessions. To help out with that we’re going to record both sessions and make them available for 30 days. We’re also going to provide each student a file with all the examples we run during the class. And of course you’ll be able to ask questions like during the class and you’ll get to enjoy all the Shane and Todd banter you can stand. Shane will also autograph any undergarments that are requested.

Each of these sessions are only $99 each. You can sign up today at BoldZebras.com.
