• Just because you have to workaround using the switch to run 5.1 modules I will not go to 7.anything.

  • I’m going to just stick with the 3rd question. Why not skip PowerShell for  this and just use the Storage Migration feature in Windows Admin Center. Skip a 2012 to 2016 Server and go straight to 2019 Server since 2019 has been out long enough to be a trusted server version.

  • This was a great article. As a Microsoft 365 administrator, I’ve been using Teams with our organization and especially my IT group for over a year. 

    The only thing that gave me the creepy crawlies was the put the computer in hibernation. That is the worst thing Microsoft ever came out with. Coming out of hibernation does not ensure that everything will connect properly again. Just shut down the computer. 

  • I've written 2 PS scripts, one for our Dell Servers and one for our VM's that are extremely short and use an exported registry key for the different values of each type of server from 2 that I manually set up for the purpose of the scripts. The reason for two is that we use Dell OEM for hardware on the those physical servers and they have a specific setup for reporting to the OEM software. 

    My scripts are basic and go something like this:


    • Import a csv of the servers 
    • foreach the servers
    • verify SNMP isn't already installed
    • Skip server if it is already installed or continue if it isn't
    • upload the registry key
    • install windows service SNMP
    • import the registry key
    • repeat loop until done

    Just quick and simple.

  • I know this has been around for a while with no answers, but without knowing what type of mail system you are using it’s hard to help. For Exchange you can use: Get-InboxRule to get a list. I will leave you with that to experiment if you ever come back to look at this post.

  • Hi,

    The Get-ComputerInfo cmdlet was introduced in Windows PowerShell 5.1. As mentioned earlier, you should check the version of PS being used on the computers you are trying to use the cmdlet on.

    I agree that this is a mess. I lost a lot of contacts while switching phones and had to go back to set it. Microsoft has a problem with understanding what should be default and what shouldn’t. After many poor decisions in this area they would speak to the general public end users or at least to the IT departments that have contact with those end users and understand what the end users really uses and needs.
