Convert from user mailbox to shared mailbox

September 28, 2016 Leave a comment

From time to time i run into a little problem with the Office 365 Admin Center when trying to convert user mailboxes into shared mailboxes.
when this occours i usualy just use Powershell to convert the mailbox into shared mailbox.

To do this you have to connect your Powershell to the Office 365 tenant and run a oneliner for converting the mailbox.

Here is how to connect to Office 365:
Import-Module MSOnline
$O365Cred = Get-Credential “adminuser@YOURTENANT.onmicrosoft.com”
$O365Session = New-PSSession –ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell -Credential $O365Cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $O365Session
Connect-MsolService -Credential $O365Cred

When connected then use this single line to convert the mailbox:
Set-Mailbox “Your@mailbox.no” -Type shared

 

Detect and uninstall hotfixes


There seem to be a broken patch KB3159398 which was released this Tuesday, it breaks GPO processing which can cause a lot of headache!

Source: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/e2ebead9-b30d-4789-a151-5c7783dbbe34/patch-tuesday-kb3159398

I’ve made a script which lets you check if this hotfix is installed and also let’s you uninstall it. Replace the KBxxxxxxx with the KB number and run from elevated Powershell to see if it is installed. If you want the script to uninstall the hotfix silently, set $uninstall to $true.

$uninstall = $false # change to $true to uninstall hotfix
$hotfixID = ‘KBxxxxxxx’ #Hotfix KB-number to check, use ‘ quotation marks
Get-HotFix $hotfixID
if ($uninstall -eq $true)
{
Invoke-Command -ScriptBlock {wusa.exe /uninstall /KB:($hotfixID -replace ‘KB’,”) /quiet /norestart} #Uninstall quietly and does not prompt for reboot
}

REG ADD “HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\microsoftonline.com ” /v https /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Azure VPN – Change Local Site Public IP


If a Clients Local site public IP changes the VPN tunel betwen Azure and the Local Site will disconnect. To fix this do the following:

Office 365 Add calendar permissions with powershell


To add permissions on a Exchange Object in Office 365 using PowerShell the cmdlet set-MailboxFolderPermission or add-MailboxFolderPermission can be used.

In this example we add editor permissions for user2 to user1’s calendar. This will enable user2 to edit, add or delete content of user1’s calendar.

set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity user1@domain.no:\calendar -user user2@domain.no -AccessRights Editor

Note: kalender is the Norwegian Word for Calendar

To bulk add all users in a Tennant as Reviewer to user1@domain.no’s calendar run the following cmdlet.

$Users = Get-Mailbox | Select-Object -ExpandProperty userprincipalname
ForEach ($user in $Users )
{
Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity “user1@domain.no:\calendar” -User $User -AccessRights Reviewer
}

Installing modules is easy – Azure and Office365


This little post is to get you up and running with Azure PowerShell so that you can manage your Azure subscriptions and Office365 tenants in 10 minutes after booting up an fresh install of Windows 10.

I have tested this in the following Windows builds:
10586 (1511 build – Windows 10)
10586(TP4 build – Windows Server 2016)
14328 (insider build – Windows 10)

Simply start PowerShell in Elevated mode (right click on PowerShell and start in Admin mode.

type these 3 lines – one at a time.

“Install-Module AzureRM -force:$true”
“Install-Module Azure -force:$true”
“Install-Module MSOnline -force:$true”

When the installation is finished you need to set the execution policy to “Unrestricted” to be able to connect to Office365 tenants.

“Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted”

You are good to go! 🙂
Good luck playing around with Azure and Office365
