New static route in hybrid Skype-Lync Environment

February 19, 2018 Leave a comment

The exiting environment is consisting three lync 2013 and three Skype for business pool in three sites. The requirement is to create new static route for new SFB pool for communication with

Polycom video environment.

I did not get properly documented in Microsoft Technet. So i just went and hit the below command to add new static route in one of the SFB Pool.

$routeINDSFBPool = New-CsStaticRoute -TLSRoute -destination “video.polycom.domain.com” -port 5061 -matchuri “video” -usedefaultcertificat $true

Set-CsStaticRoutingConfiguration -identity service:Registrar:sfbpool.domain.com -route @{Add=$routeINDSFBPool}

We got below error saying that- “Set-CsStaticRoutingConfiguration : Cannot find “StaticRoutingConfiguration” “Registrar: sfbpool.domain.com” because it does not exist”

After many discussion within team my team member found that, we could not modify the static route for new SFB pool which was never created. Hence we need to create it as new.

We ran below cmdlet and its solve the issue.

$routeINDSFBPool = New-CsStaticRoute -TLSRoute -destination “video.polycom.domain.com” -port 5061 -matchuri “video” -usedefaultcertificat $true

New-CsStaticRoutingConfiguration -identity service:Registrar: sfbpool.domain.com -route @{Add=$routeAPSFBPool}

We hope it will help someone !

Want to Enabling and Using Guest Access in Teams

October 13, 2017 Leave a comment

HERE you GO !. I have tried to enable/add guest access in my O365 trial tenent and share it below.

Login to your Microsoft Teams console and add guest. Remember that you can only add (Tenent O365 emabled)

Add guest by putting valid email address of O365 tenent.

Upps, you got error saying that “you are not authorized”??. OK, never mind.

go into Microsoft Teams settings in the Office 365 admin portal. From within the admin portal navigate to Settings -> Services & add-ins -> Microsoft Teams. On the fly-out to the right, under the section Settings by user/license type click the drop-down menu and toggle from Business and Enterprise to Guest then click On next to Turn Microsoft Teams on or off for all users of this type. Then click Save, and then try to add same member

YOu can also validate the guest was successfully added to Azure Active Directory

Browse to https://aad.portal.azure.com . On the left pane, click Azure Active Directory. On the Azure Active Directory blade clickUsers and groups

Guest user will be receiving email as email invite to join the channel from “Microsoft Teams <noreply@email.teams.microsoft.com>”

Guest user can login as guest on link and start conversation.

BUT – Honestly, Microsoft has to do lot of other improvement if really want to compete with Slack 🙂 🙂

Enjoy and happy Teaming !!!

New Skype for Business 2016 look and feel coming your way…

Application sharing failed with external Partner (Non-Federated)

Working with one of the vendor who is not federated with us and doing application  sharing and come-up with an strange issue which is telling many story.

First-of-All, I would like to beat Microsoft for the wrong documentation they have furnished for ports requirement into Edge Server for Media traffic.

The client will ALWAYS try to connect over the 50k (50000-59999) port range. If it fails to do this, than it will fail back to the 443/3478 ports. This is not mentioned by Microsoft at all in TechNet Documentation below.

Note: Desktop/App sharing & file transfer always use TCP port (same AV ports) not UDP.

Port summary – Scaled consolidated edge, DNS load balancing with public IP addresses in Lync Server 2013

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj205394(v=ocs.15).aspx

Reference:

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/faf15263-8950-44e5-af6e-6eaf8b23f0b5/lync-2013-client-still-tries-to-connect-to-lync-edge-on-ports-5000059999?forum=lyncconferencing

So, Let jump into the problem been faced and how it was working with a workaround (Guess ??).

Problem:

Corp User is doing application sharing with remote user (Non federated but use lync) from corporate network and its failed with as usual error “We Could not connect the presentation due to network issue

UserError

Troubleshooting:

I did not do many traces as I am more relying lync CDR database which tells you exact issue and help to start with a basic troubleshooting. I looked into user CDR logs and see that “ICEWarn=”0x120“;”

ICEWarning

Has generated is BYE message from client logs which itself is sufficient to explain that remote firewall is not allowing outbound TCP connections in 50000-59999 port range and hence application sharing was failing.

log2

This is the GOTCHA which is not clearly explained by MS documentations.

Solution:

Now we understand that high port range is not allowed by remote network firewall and causing this issue, So I thought to force remote user to open this conf in WEB/443 and test it.

I edited the meeting conference by adding “?sl=1” in conference URL and tried testing.

https://meetXX.domain.com/anilsingh/ABC78WR3?sl=1

Yes, Its worked now J.

I have asked remote customer to work with his network team and make sure that 50k outbound ports is opened to work.

Identify Lync/Skype Caller and Callee location

I have got several calls recently with my other UC expert friend eager to know “How Can identify Lync caller location“. There are several option to trace it including wire shark, Fiddler and Netmon live traces. But instead of siting to do live trace you can do it offline with the help of lync CDR monitoring console.

Of course you must have it, no choice 🙂 !!

Its pretty simple, login to your Lync monitoring console and search with Caller “User URI prefix”. Click on the audio call which you want and jump directly into “Media Line (Main Audio)” section.

I have two example as below

a)Caller is in outside/internet and callee is in corporate network

b)Caller and callee both is in corporate network

Hope it will help you 🙂
