    Problem: customer could not locate any users from a specific trusted domain when using the people picker. there is 'No exact match was found'

    Troubleshooting:


    I verified that this command was run successfully:

    stsadm -o getproperty -pnpeoplepicker-searchadforests -url http://staging.contoso.net 

    did an IISRESET

    still the user could not be found

    Asked the customer to create a folder on the desktop of the server and try to add one of these users. The user was was NOT able to be added. This meant that this problem was a networking issue because if the user can't be added to a folder on the server desktop it certainly won't be available in IIS

    Resolution

    Ensure the proper ports are opened You must have ports opened between SharePoint and AD in order for both the UPA to function (389 or 636 or custom) and the People Picker to function.  

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION  

    Ports: 

    TCP/UDP 135, 137, 138, 139 (RPC)  

    TCP/UDP 389 by default, customizable (LDAP)  

    TCP 636 by default, customizable (LDAP SSL)  

    TCP 3268 (LDAP GC)  

    TCP 3269 (LDAP GC SSL)  

    TCP/UDP 53 (DNS)  

    TCP/UDP 88 (Kerberos)

    こんにちは。Exchange サポートの小林です。

    今回は Exchange Online (EXO) におけるディレクトリ同期の注意点をご紹介します。

    Office 365 の利用を開始されると同時に、ほとんどのお客様環境では、オンプレミス側の Active Directory (AD) のユーザー、グループ、連絡先オブジェクトの管理を一元化するためにディレクトリ同期を実施されていることと思います。

    お客様のオンプレミス側の環境にあるディレクトリ同期ツールでは、オンプレミス側の AD と Azure AD 間の同期が一定間隔 (既定では 3 時間) で行われていることが確認できます。
    しかしながら、この同期ツールでの同期のステータスは、あくまでオンプレミス側 AD および Azure AD 間の同期ステータスとなり、その後 Office 365 内で行われる Azure AD と EXO の同期のステータスについては、当該同期ツール上はご確認いただく事ができません。

    そのため、オンプレミス側のオブジェクト (ldifde/ADSI Edit など)、Azure AD 上のオブジェクト (Get-MsolUser)、EXO 上のオブジェクト (Get-Mailbox/Get-MailUser など) の属性を地道に比較しながら一体どこまで同期が完了したのか確認する必要があります。
    それぞれの構成情報を比較しながら確認した結果、オンプレミス側と Azure AD 間の属性値は一致しているにも関わらず、EXO 側のオブジェクトの属性になぜか設定が反映されていないという場合には、以下の 2 つの原因のうちいずれかに合致している可能性がございます。

    1. 想定された動作として EXO への反映に時間が掛かっている
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    オンプレミス側の AD から Azure AD への同期が完了後、Office 365 側のサービス (EXO など) まで設定が最終的に反映されるまでは最大 24 時間ほど掛かる場合がございます。これは現時点での動作上の制限によるもので、残念ながら、この同期に関してはテナント管理者が手動で実行することができません。
    したがって、お客様のディレクトリ同期ツールにて同期の完了をご確認いただいた後、24 時間以内の場合には、誠に恐れ入りますが、24 時間以上経過するまでお待ちくださいますようお願いいたします。
    なお、万が一  24 時間以上経過後も事象が解消せず、テナント管理者にて確認可能な明示的なエラーの記録等もない場合には、弊社サポート窓口へお問い合わせいただければと存じます。

    2. そもそも Azure AD - EXO での同期が行われない属性である
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    まずディレクトリ同期ツール (DirSync, AAD Sync, AAD Connect) 毎に、オンプレミス AD および Azure AD 間で同期される対象の AD 属性の一覧は以下にある通りです。ご留意いただきたいのは、この一覧にある AD 属性の全てが EXO まで反映される AD 属性ではないということです。つまり、この一覧にある AD 属性のうち、一部は EXO まで反映されない属性がございます。
    具体的には、配布グループの説明 (Discription 属性)、メモ (Info 属性)、および、会社名 (Company 属性) などが該当し、これらの属性はオンプレミス側の AD から Azure AD へは同期されますが、EXO 側には反映されません。

    これは現状の想定された動作となりますが、残念ながら現時点ではこの EXO まで反映されない属性の一覧がございません。今後動作が変わる可能性もございますが、お客様のお問い合わせをもとに、こちらのチーム ブログなどでも情報を公開する予定ですので、何卒ご理解くださいますようお願いいたします。

            微軟新世代 Windows Server 2016 雲端作業系統,在 2014 年 10 月 1 日時正式發佈第一版的「技術預覽(Technical Preview,TP1)」版本,接著在 2015 年 5 月發佈 TP2 技術預覽版本、2015 年 8 月發佈 TP3 技術預覽版本。最新版本,則是在 2015 年 11 月時所發佈的 TP4 技術預覽版本。

            在此要和各位分享的是 Windows Server 2016 攻略系列文章,分 Compute / Storage / Network 三大主題,其中 Compute 主題將由以下三篇文章涵蓋介紹:

    • 新世代虛擬化平台 Hyper-V (即本文)
    • 為雲端而生的極簡平台 Nano Server (預計 1/7 發佈)
    • 整合雲端元素的容錯移轉叢集 (預計 1/12 發佈)

            本文,將說明及實作在微軟新世代 Windows Server 2016 雲端作業系統當中,Hyper-V 虛擬化平台擁有哪些新的特色功能,包括:


    新式 VM 虛擬主機設定檔格式

           在 Windows Server 2012 R2(Hyper-V 3.0)以及先前的版本當中,VM 虛擬主機的設定檔皆為「.xml」格式,並且可以採用文字編輯器進行檔案開啟及編輯內容等作業。

           現在,新版的 Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V 虛擬化平台上的 VM 虛擬主機,新式的 VM 虛擬主機設定檔格式「.VMCX 及 .VMRS」,可以有效提升 VM 虛擬主機的資料「讀取(Read) / 寫入(Write)」效率,並且當儲存資源無預警發生故障損壞事件時,也能降低 VM 虛擬主機資料損壞的風險。下列為這兩個新式設定檔格式的功能說明:

    • .VMCX: VM 虛擬主機組態設定檔,取代舊有的 .xml 檔案。

    • .VMRS: VM 虛擬主機運作狀態檔,取代舊有的 .bin .vsv 檔案。

           值得注意的是,不同於舊版的 Hyper-V 組態設定檔可以使用文字編輯器開啟檢視及編輯內容,新式的 VM 虛擬主機設定檔 .VMCX 及 .VMRS 採用「二進位(Binary)」檔案格式,因此無法使用文字編輯器檢視內容及進行編輯。

    圖 1、VM 虛擬主機採用新式組態設定檔格式

    新式檢查點機制

           在新版 Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V 虛擬化平台上,也針對 VM 虛擬主機的「檢查點(Checkpoint)」舊稱為「快照(Snapshot)」機制進行加強。

           現在檢查點機制分為「生產檢查點(Production Checkpoints)」及「標準檢查點(Standard Checkpoints)」兩種類型,其中標準檢查點便是舊有的檢查點運作方式,也就是採用「儲存狀態(Saved State)」的機制,來為 VM 虛擬主機建立檢查點。

           新式的生產檢查點機制,將會針對運作 Windows 作業系統的 VM 虛擬主機,採用「磁碟區快照服務(Volume Snapshot Service,VSS)」的方式,來為 VM 虛擬主機建立檢查點。若是Linux 作業系統的 VM 虛擬主機,則會採用「更新檔案系統緩衝區(Flush File System Buffers)」的方式,為底層的檔案系統建立一致性的檢查點。

           預設情況下,新版的 VM 虛擬主機將會採用新式的生產檢查點機制,因為它更適合使用於線上營運環境的 VM 虛擬主機。

    圖 2、選擇 VM 虛擬主機採用的檢查點機制

    線上調整啟動記憶體空間

           在舊版 Windows Server 2012 R2 的 Hyper-V 虛擬化平台上,運作的 VM 虛擬主機在啟用「動態記憶體(Dynamic Memory)」機制之後,雖然可以在 VM 虛擬主機運作中線上調整虛擬記憶體的「下限(Minimum) / 上限(Maximum)」,但是並無法線上調整「啟動(Startup)」的記憶體空間。

           現在,在 Windows Server 2016 虛擬化平台上運作的 VM 虛擬主機,即使在沒有啟用動態記憶體機制的情況下,也可以在 VM 虛擬主機運作中線上調整啟動虛擬記憶體空間。

    圖 3、新版的 VM 虛擬主機可線上調整記憶體空間

    線上新增/刪除虛擬網路卡

           過去,在 Windows Server 2012 R2 的 Hyper-V 虛擬化平台上,若 VM 虛擬主機需要「新增(Add) / 移除(Remove)」虛擬網路卡時,必須要將 VM 虛擬主機「關機(Shutdown)」才能進行新增移除作業。

           現在,當使用的是「第二世代」的 VM 虛擬主機格式時,不管 VM 虛擬主機採用的作業系統是 Windows 或 Linux,都隨時可以線上新增/移除虛擬網路卡,並且運作中的 Windows / Linux 作業系統也都可以線上感知新增或移除的虛擬網路卡。

    圖 4、新版 VM 虛擬主機,可隨時線上新增或移除虛擬網路卡

    虛擬網路卡名稱識別

           以往在 VM 虛擬主機的設定內容視窗中,當指定虛擬網路卡採用虛擬交換器後,會在虛擬網路卡下方顯示虛擬交換器以利識別。

           但是,當 VM 虛擬主機的虛擬網路卡數量一多時,雖然我們在 Guest OS 層級可以針對虛擬網路卡重新命名以利識別,不過在 VM 虛擬主機設定內容視窗中,每一片虛擬網路卡都只能顯示「網路介面卡」造成辨別上的困擾。

    圖 5、可顯示虛擬交換器名稱,卻無法顯示虛擬網路卡名稱造成辨別上的困擾

           現在,新版的 Windows Server 2016 虛擬化平台,支援虛擬網路卡「裝置命名(Device Naming)」機制。你可以在 Hyper-V 主機端指定虛擬網路卡名稱,並在 VM 虛擬主機設定內容中,點選進階功能項目後勾選「啟用裝置命名」選項,那麼便可以將這個網路卡裝置名稱傳遞給 VM 虛擬主機當中 Guest OS 層級感知。

    圖 6、管理人員可自行定義 VM 虛擬主機虛擬網路卡名稱

    圖 7、Guest OS 層級也能正確感知虛擬網路卡名稱

    以上是本期內容,敬請期待我們 Windows Server 系列的下一篇文章喔!

    Problem: Customer was experiencing the error below when trying to view a PowerPivot workbook in their SharePoint site. This was only occurring in their production farm.

    I also found this error in the logs:

    Troubleshooting:

    • verified they had the SQL Server analysis service instance enabled on the PowerPivot/SharePoint server (problem still occurred)
    • verified that their Excel Services account has the below permissions on the SQL Server Analysis Server (problem still occurred)

    Resolution

    When running the following commands to see the build level of SSAS, we found the problem:
    $server = "serverInstance\PowerPivot"
    $aso = New-Object Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Server
    $aso.Connect($server)
    Write-Host "The SSAS server version is: "$aso.Version

    We saw that the SSAS version is different in CERT and PROD and it is working in CERT not in PROD. The PowerPivot Add-in version is 11.1.3437 on the App servers in both CERT and PROD. Had to update SSAS on PROD to 11.0.3437

    Summary: Sean Kearney shows you how to access modules in the PowerShell Gallery.

    Honorary Scripting Guy, Sean Kearney, is here today to introduce you to a feature you may not have heard of called the Module Browser for the PowerShell ISE.

      Note   This is Part 3 in a five-part series. Also see:

    One of the newest things coming out of Microsoft is a central website called the PowerShell Gallery. This is a central repository of scripts that the community can use programmatically.

    A perfect example of this in action is Desired State Configuration (DSC). The needed code for a particular resource may not be on a server. However, you can now pull these DSC resources directly from the PowerShell Gallery.

    This allows administrators to simply define the resources they need, such as a DHCP resource, to be brought down as they need it. It also means if there have been improvements or bug fixes, these resources have the potential to receive them in a more automated fashion.

    Administrators and power users who need modules for their day-to-day activities can use the Find-Module and Find-Package capabilities in Windows PowerShell 5.0 to consume these resources.

    If you install the Module Browser for the PowerShell ISE, it will give you the ability to access and work with these modules directly in the PowerShell ISE. You can download this free add-on from the PowerShell Gallery: ISEModuleBrowserAddon 1.0.1.

    Image of menu

    After you download and install it, you’ll have a new module that you can import. With the PowerShell ISE in the Console view, run the following line:

    Image of command

    When it is complete, you will see that the Module Browser was added to the Add-on Tool menu. Initially, you may see a small message that says Initializing, with an Accept button. Click the Accept button to continue.

    Image of menu

    At this point, you are connected to the PowerShell Gallery. If you press ENTER in the search panel, it will do a generic wildcard search of the Gallery. The results will be in alphabetical order. In the following example, I used an asterisk ( * ) as a wildcard character, which produces the same result.

    Image of menu

    If you were to enter a word, such as Azure or DSC, it would search for all modules with those characters in the name.

    When you click any module, you can choose Add to Favorites or Open to download and view it.

    If you click Add to favorites, it will add this module to a built-in list of favorites for the Module Browser. This is not related to your Internet favorites list. If you click the Favorites tab, you will see the current list of favorites on your system:

    Image of menu

    If you’d like to obtain a module, click the name of the module, and then click Open.

    Image of menu

    Clicking Open provides details about the module, including the hyperlink to the module in the PowerShell Gallery, the name of the author, and a general description of its purpose.

    Image of menu

    Click Install to download and install the module for all users on the computer. It is stored in the common location for PowerShell modules (typically C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules).

    After it is downloaded, you can access the module normally by using Import-Module. However, if you’d like to open this module for editing, you can click the Open button, which appears after the module is downloaded.

    Image of menu

    This provides a list of files that the module contains and allows you to directly open the folder. At this point, you can access, download, and consume or edit these modules within the PowerShell ISE.

    Pop by for a visit tomorrow when I’ll take a look at another cool feature that IT pros will enjoy using in the PowerShell ISE: Snippets.

    I invite you to follow the Scripting Guys on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to them at scripter@microsoft.com, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, always remember that with great PowerShell comes great responsibility.

  • 01/06/16--01:00: Cloud trends in 2016
  • Vadym Fedorov is a Solutions Architect at SoftServe, a leading global software application development and consulting company, and a regular blogger on theSoftServe United blog.Vadym has 12 years experience in enterprise application development, as well as 2 years’ experience in Cloud and operations optimization.

    Playing a role of innovations accelerator, cloud computing will remain in trend opening doors to new technologies and startups in 2016. At the same time, cloud computing will hold the fort as a proven tool which helps long-established businesses optimise costs for their IT infrastructure.

    Flashback to cloud of 2015

    Looking back at the 2015 cloud predictions, DevOps, application containerisation, and real-time processing of Big Data streams were singled out as the major cloud hype of today. Now it's time to run over the passing year again and check how topical these predictions were:

    DevOps

    Yes, DevOps is still newsworthy. If in the beginning DevOps was a blurry buzzword making companies feel lost while adopting it as the best practice, now there is a considerable growth of investment into the DevOps initiatives within enterprises. Not to be bear-worded, let the numbers speak for themselves: estimated 35% of the UK companies allocate DevOps budget of £1 million – and far greater expectations are ahead.

    Real-Time Processing of Big Data Streams

    Now, real-time processing of Big Data streams is a commonly used technology that facilitates a range of other technologies, from the Internet of Things and machine learning, to smart advisors and connected cars. However, what is losing its hype is Big Data: according to the recent Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies 2015 report, the term Big Data is fading away and swapping places with just data. Big things don’t last forever, you know.

    Application Containerisation

    This trend also remains in power. In particular, the Docker container is revolutionising the way applications are managed and infrastructure is designed. In 2015, most of the major cloud providers released services that enable container deployment and management, which serves as proof of their demand. A striking number of press releases informing us about new container services proves once again that migration to the container micro services architecture is a real thing, and it is worth considering containers as a part of your company’s strategy.

     

    Upcoming cloud trends in 2016

    Ubiquity of the micro services architecture, and the growing popularity of containers, actually set cloud’s direction in 2016 and marks off the following three major trends:

    Hybrid Cloud

    Following the already mentioned Gartner report, hybrid cloud will prove to be a perfect mix of private and public clouds, and will be finally replaced by a more generic “cloud”. With a vast range of new technological trends appearing on the market, it is crucial that you are ready to cope with the hybrid cloud strategy. It is a challenging, but manageable task opening new opportunities for any business to stay successful.

    Cloud Optimised Application Design

    With big power comes big responsibility, so the expected cloud trends pose a new challenge when it comes to developing applications: now software development processes need to be adapted to the cloud infrastructure. A cloud infrastructure in general resembles the on-premises one; however it requires changes in the applications in order to make them reliable and workable in conditions with varying latency and elastic environment.

    Cloud Security and Security in the Cloud

    Cloud deployment and integrations between multiple service providers always raise questions regarding security. According to the LinkedIn Report on 2015 Cloud Security Survey, 90% of the surveyed companies experience security concerns with hybrid cloud being one of the main drivers initiating this trend. With the existing security threats (in particular, unauthorized access, hijacking, and malicious insiders) and numerous breaches, cloud security and awareness about it will be a very hot trend.

     

    To draw a line, 2016 could be named a year of the hybrid cloud where DevOps, containers, cloud optimised design, and security should become harmonized components of a single strategy.

    Win10-EMS

    One of the biggest changes you are likely already seeing with Windows 10 is something we call the Windows 10 Servicing Options. These are the good kinds of rings (e.g. onion, Saturn, wedding), not the kind forged in the bowels of some evil mountain. I’m talking about the Windows Servicing Options.

    Looking ahead, at any given time there are going to be multiple branches of the Windows code in the market, and you’ll even have multiple branches deployed within your organization. This will become normal (and not at all as complex as it may at first sound), but understanding what each branch does is very important. The authoritative source for definitions and details of the various Windows 10 servicing options can be found here. I recommend that you become super familiar with this blog and refer to it as you make decisions on which Windows branch to use in each scenario within your organization.

    In this post, I’ll touch on the definitions of the servicing options and share some insight on how the individuals and devices in your organization can participate in all of the rings – as well as how you can manage all the servicing options via SCCM and EMS.

    As we’ve worked on Windows 10 to define the overall strategy for how Windows will be delivered as a service, servicing the multiple servicing options is something we have spent a lot of time discussing. We understand that the majority of Enterprise organizations are going to use ConfigMgr and EMS to manage Windows 10 devices, and we have significantly enhanced the capabilities of ConfigMgr to help you manage and report across the servicing options.

    What are the Servicing Options and Why?

    Let me start with the why.

    I regularly get asked for advice on how to best keep Windows devices secure, reliable, and compatible. At Microsoft we have a pretty strong point-of-view on this: Your devices will be more secure, more reliable, and more compatible if you are keeping up with the updates we regularly release.

    Most people I talk with generally agree with that point-of-view, but they still have concerns about whether or not their devices can handle all the updates without first rigorously verifying that the updates won’t break something. That process can, obviously, consume a ton of time. Some examples of devices in this type of scenario are PC’s that operate in truly mission-critical roles (e.g. operating and assembly line or in an operating room). These mission-critical use cases are very different from the typical Information Worker scenarios where the devices get used for a lot of different activities and can therefore be more flexible.

    In our mobile-first, cloud-first world, Information Workers expect (and, you could argue, insist) on having new value and new capabilities constantly flowing to them. Most of these workers have smart phones and regularly accept the updates to their apps from the various app stores. The iOS and Android ecosystems also release updates to the OS on a regular cadence.

    With this in mind, making updates isn’t abnormal, and we are committed to continuously rolling out new capabilities to users around the globe – but we also understand that there are use cases where this simply doesn’t make sense. Windows is unique in that it is used in an incredibly broad set of scenarios – from a simple phone to some of the most complex and mission critical use scenarios in factories and hospitals. One size (and one servicing model) does not fit all of these scenarios.

    To strike a balance between the needed updates for such a wide range of device types, there are four servicing options you will want to deeply understand.

    • Windows Insider Program
    • Current Branch (CB)
    • Current Branch for Business (CBB)
    • Long-Term Servicing Branch (LTSB)

    Windows Insider Program

    The Windows Insider program is where individuals who want to see the new innovations coming out as early as possible can sign up and receive regular updates – essentially directly from the Windows engineering team. Having millions of devices participating in this program and getting regular updates has been a wonderful part of building Windows 10. As soon as we think the new capabilities/features are ready to put in the hands of customer, we release it to the Insiders.

    I am sure many (if not all of you) have said sometime in your career that you wished you had an early/inside view of the capabilities that would be coming out in the next version of Windows so that you could start preparing for them – this is exactly what the Insider program does for you. Insiders can see, months in advance, the capabilities being developed.

    At any given time, we expect there to >10M devices participating in Windows Insider Program. This gives us early feedback on functionality as well as any compatibility issues that may surface.

    Current Branch (CB)

    As scenarios mature, and as our confidence in the capabilities/compatibility meet a specific bar, we move code to the Current Branch. The Current Branch is what we will be distributing through Windows Update to the 100’s of millions of consumer devices around the globe.

    On a regular basis, consumers around the globe will have new functionality as well as core fixes in stability, reliability, and compatibility distributed out through the Windows Update solution that we all know so well.

    Today, Windows Update services/updates close to 1 billion PCs each month. It is one of the most amazing services I have ever worked on. You will definitely have users/devices on this branch – it will be the most common branch you will see on BYO devices.

    Windows devices being serviced from the Current Branch will be referred to as “serviced from CBs.”

    Current Branch for Business (CBB)

    This is the branch where many/most of your Information Worker’s CYO devices will ultimately end up. There will be 100s of millions of devices running code in the CB before we classify the capabilities as ready for Current Branch for Business.

    Consider this for a minute: 100’s of millions of devices will have been running the code that is in CBB for a few months and, through the telemetry coming in from CB, we will be able to see any issues and address them prior to the code moving into CBB. This is a huge benefit to every organization using this branch: All the telemetry coming in gives us a view of the reliability/stability of the new features, and this means IT can have confidence that what they’re deploying is stable and ready for use. Additionally, end-Users get a constant stream of new features – so it’s a win-win!

    Windows devices being serviced from the Current Branch for Business will be referred to as “serviced from CBB’s.”

    Long-Term Servicing Branch (LTSB)

    For the mission-critical scenarios in which Windows devices will be used, we will release what we call Long-Term Servicing branches at the appropriate time intervals. Devices on these branches will receive the level of enterprise support expected for the mission critical systems and it will keep those systems more secure with the latest security and critical updates, while minimizing change by not delivering new features for the duration of mainstream or extended support.

    Bringing it All Together

    With this approach, you can enable innovations to roll out to your users and their devices at different speeds. It provides you with a tremendous amount of flexibility.

    Now what you need is a way to see all of this in one view and get that all-up perspective. That is what ConfigMgr provides. In ConfigMgr we have delivered a dashboard (see below) and the ability to see an all-up status in one place. I know that many of you already use the ConfigMgr reports as a part of your security and compliance efforts – but now I believe it’s important for you to have that same kind of report across these servicing options. With ConfigMgr you can now aggregate all of this together.

    Here is are some screen shots of what is coming:

    Picture1

    In terms of suggestions/guidance, this is where I think many of you will want to go:

    • Windows Insiders Program
      Take a few of your organization’s technology enthusiasts and have their primary device participate in the Insiders Program. This could be your architects, or it could be individuals in IT who have been the most active participants over the years in the TAP and beta programs. You want to have some of your thought leaders getting that super early view of what is coming. This will also give you the opportunity to have some of your apps in very early compatibility testing as these users do their daily work.
    • Current Branch
      If you are enabling BYO, the majority of your users’ BYO devices are going to be on this branch. If you are not enabling BYO, you will want to identify a set of users who like being the first to use something new and then have them on this branch. You could take an approach where you have a handful of users from each of the major departments (engineering, sales, marketing, etc.) on the consumer branch to test its widespread applicability. If you do this, you are going to have a set of users/devices validating that the core apps work (a form of real-world compatibility testing) across all the departments.
    • Current Branch for Business
      This is where the majority of your Information Workers devices will reside. I expect that they will love the continuous flow of new capabilities. The fact that you have had individuals participating in the Insider Program and Consumer Branch will provide a level of confidence for compatibility and stability before you roll these updates out to any user.
    • Long Term Servicing Branch
      Identify the devices that are mission critical or have more strict regulations around change (a stock traders desktop, a PC being used in pharmaceutical trials, etc.) and group those devices here.

    ConfigMgr is going to enable you to have the dashboard to approve and monitor what is happening across the servicing options. A big part of what is enabling this the additional business capabilities we are building into Windows Update, e.g. we announced Windows Update for Business in May 2015.

    I have been leading the ConfigMgr team since 2003, and my philosophy (and the view of Microsoft) is that we want to deliver increasingly rich capabilities in our platforms and then provide more granular and detailed management capabilities through solutions like ConfigMgr and EMS. This is exactly the case with Windows Update for Business. The Windows Update for Business capabilities will be integrated into ConfigMgr just like WSUS has been integrated into ConfigMgr. As you read about Windows Update for Business capabilities, they will be exposed through ConfigMgr.

    ConfigMgr will continue to be that single pane of glass for all your updates – both Microsoft updates and our partners’ updates.

    Windows 10 brings an incredible amount of flexibility to how you want to flow innovation out to your users and devices. I believe we have tackled this in the right way. We are hoping you will enable the updates to flow to your devices as quickly as possible, and we believe that, as you do this, your devices will be performant, secure, reliable, and compatible.

    This is how we see working together moving forward: We are updating the tools you use today to enable this flexibility with the skills and knowledge you already have.

    As I’m writing this, there are over 2,500 pre-federated application available in the Azure AD Gallery.  But, what if yours isn’t in there?  No sweat.

    Log into your Azure subscription and navigate to Azure Active Directory.  From there add an application.  You’ll want to choose the middle option to create one from the gallery.

    image

    You have the ability to search through the gallery for applications or if you know it’s not in there – just choose the ‘custom’ option as highlighted and enter the name that you want to appear in the https://myapps.microsoft.com portal for your users.

    image

    Once added choose the “configure SSO” option.

    image

    In our case the application just requires a username and a password so we’ll choose the “password SSO” option.  In our example we are going to pre-populate the credential so that all users would use the same login to sign in.  You of course have the option to allow the users to self-service that credential as well.

    image

    The next step is to provide the URL to the sign-in page.

    image

    Now AAD will want to ‘capture’ the login fields for us.  Click the “click to sign-in” link and it will open the web page where you will then place your cursor into the username field and enter a credential.  Your credential is not store here – AAD is just using it to verify the appropriate fields.

    image

    Click on the username field and enter a credential.  Same for the password then login.

    image

    AAD will ask you to save the login details.

    image

    Now you’re back in the Azure portal where you will click the ‘sign-in succeeded’ check box and continue on.

    image

    On the next page you have the option to view the fields that were captured.

    image

    Now you’ll want to assign users access to the application in Azure AD.  Pretty straightforward here.  As I mentioned in my scenario I’m going to pre-populate a credential that all users will use when the access the application.

    image

    Now when my users accesses the MyApps portal (https://myapps.microsoft.com) they’ll see the custom application available to them.  When they click on it, they will be signed in using the credential the Azure administrator defined in the previous step.

    image

    Voila!  Success!

    image

    A few advanced options that are available…if you go into the ‘configure’ tab…

    image

    You can do things like:

    • Add a custom logo
    • Configure MFA on a per-application basis
    • Allow your users to self-service their own access to your custom application
