  1. This is pretty much why we originally created it - in the same way Twitter has a way to discern legitimate accounts from everyone else, it was more to protect brand reputation.
  2. That is entirely dependent on the services running on the virtual machines and whether they support that. For example, Exchange 2016 does not like any live failover/migration situations as it has its own systems built into it to achieve this. You'd have to ask the application developer.
  3. Uhh that’s entirely different - this is in reference to a commercial space where you need uniform centralised management, something that is somewhat non existent for Linux.
  4. I don't see how this is at all news anyway? Windows 10 auto-pilot has been available since late last year and provides automatic device provisioning Microsoft already provide Surface-as-a-Service platform and both HP & Dell have similar offerings themselves. You can also just arrange a lease agreement with a finance provider to solve the financial side of things. Intune device management already gives you the option to customise the Windows Update schedule for Windows 10 cloud managed devices. Failing to see what's new..?
  5. Any dramatic shift in temperature doesn't go well for people: case and point most of Australia is fine with the heat but the death toll during winter doubles that of Sweden because people (particularly the homeless & elderly) aren't equipped for the winter: houses aren't built to withstand it etc.
  6. What OS is the media server? Could be an SMB1 issue - seen problems where you can’t connect via hostname but that primarily affects SBS / 03 and maybe 08 Windows server versions.
  7. The fault was with the original ISO that was loaded from VLSC - missing some part of the Windows update mechanism. Issue occurred when you reboot if you had BitLocker.
  8. Vancouver sure is a pretty city

  9. Can confirm Teams is the replacement for Skype for Business Online: https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-roadmap?filters= As for the whole TeamSpeak vs Discord thing, just use what works best for you??? I personally hate Discord's interface and overall branding but to each their own.
  10. OneDrive now includes on demand / offline file support. It used to be all or nothing but now there's a bit of customisation to it.
  11. Well I mean it's shorter than the 20 hour flight...
  12. True forgot about that. Unless he has a MU-MIMO capable wireless card including the driver support for that to work correctly.
  13. Not really - latency is simply the time it takes for a response from the destination. Assuming the wireless card is capable and the client base is small, there's no huge issue in doing this. I've built a similar solution for a portable server to be used in classrooms as a portable media/web server.
  14. I believe they're capped at 75W / 110V AC. Check with the specific carrier but I know that's what Qantas do. Could in theory use the built in wireless card on the laptop as the WAP using the netsh command line set.
  15. No, they'll be protected by Exchange Online Threat Protection, not the advanced version. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office-365-service-descriptions.aspx
  16. Correct - Exchange Online Protection and Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection are the two mail security applications from Microsoft's PaaS (Azure / Office 365). You can use them with Exchange 2013 / 2016 or with Exchange Online.
  17. Phishing can be better combated through tinkering with the EOP spam filtering. You can set to mark as junk if there's a SPF hard fault which may help. All ATP will bring is safe links and attachment sandboxing. ATP for Education should be around the $1 US / mailbox / month, maybe cheaper. I can only see the Australian CSP pricing.
  18. Finally got a HP 1030 as a replacement for my T460P for work and it's pretty great. Now kinda understand the benefits of the Windows Store apps from a usability perspective.

  19. So I'm going to give you a bit of advice after seeing how this place works for the last 5-6 years - settle the fuck down. If you go picking illogical arguments with every person you meet, you're not going to last around here as the mods will simply kick you to the curb. This place was born to foster constructive discussion about things, not resorting to attacking other users through ill thought out arguments. I assume you're looking into deploying Office 365 ProPlus apps via the ODT? If so (and if you're an Exchange Online org too), have a look into deploying ATP for EO too. The SafeLinks system in it works quite well if your user base are idiots. If you want more info, hit me up via PM.
  20. Just for reference this can already be done via Intune (device management software from Microsoft). I suspect you could also do it via group policy but I know for a fact it’s in Intune...
  21. Not that expensive for corporates at all. One of my clients is debating getting one however is waiting for this 2nd gen which should hopefully be on demo for Microsoft's July summit.
