Using Yammer & SharePoint Intranets to Drive Employee Engagement

Using Yammer & SharePoint Intranets
to Drive Employee Engagement 

WEBINAR: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 – 1:00-2:00PM CT

Register Button


Microsoft has gone social in a big way with Yammer – but are yammer you ready for it? A successful social solution must give end users the foundational tools needed to effectively collaborate with coworkers, clients and partners while maintaining control of access, security and content. Each business has a different sweet spot when it comes to creating an engaging social environment that drives collaboration and meaningful dialogue. An enterprise social network’s success is dependent on unearthing your employees’ key motivational drivers, aligning the solution to your company’s culture, your vision for leveraging cloud-based solutions, and tailoring a strategy to fit.

In this session, we will be taking a look at what planning for Yammer success really entails, and the importance of a social maturity assessment, community use case planning and a communication plan. We’ll also discuss the value of a Yammer pilot, or SharePoint social on premises where appropriate.

Presenter Rich Wood is Director of Perficient’s national Microsoft Web & Social Collaboration practice and has been planning, designing and building enterprise solutions for intranets, extranets, and public internet sites since 1997. A veteran of both the SharePoint partner community and Microsoft itself, Rich has deep experience in information architecture, user experience, social collaboration, and enterprise architecture and technology strategy.

Office 365 Partner Global Admin Account with Assigned Client Administration = FULL

One of the frustrating experiences I have had recently due to using ADFS2, DirSync or SSO is the Public Certificate used for ADFS2 and SSO expires 20 days early (more about this in an additional post). However this shouldn’t be an issue since my Partner Account / The Partner of Record should be able to reset Passwords and mange my Client Office 365 environment. However, as you can see from the screenshot below. There isn’t anywhere to manage your clients, like there was in BPOS. Though if you login to http://Partner.Microsoft.com you can find many users and clients that you have being managed.

Partner Overview

image

The Partner overview allows you to view additional marketing material or Build Your Business, Send Invitations,  and Confirm Purchase Orders. While I still have less than 500 Client Users with only a handful of clients including my own company.

Though as you can see from the next screen shot I am logged in as the Global Admin of my Partner Account and been granted Assign Administrative Access to Companies I support

Global Admin Settings

image

There doesn’t appear to be any way to manage your clients. This wouldn’t have been an issue if I hadn’t deprecated my Companies Global Admin Account by associating the email address with the ASDFS Service Account which is a domain user without certain privileges in my domain. Also, there isn’t any documentation that the companies Global Admin Account would be deprecated. The reason I did so was so that any issue with DirSync would be emailed to this account and it would be monitored. Interestingly, all DirSync failures go to your alternate email address in my case this is an unmanaged domain like yahoo.com.

There will be a more complete post where I walk through the steps of restoring SSO when your certificate expires 20 days prior to its Expiration.. The moral of the story is to use a Password LockBox Like the Lenovo Client Security Solution and create more than one Global Admin Account prior to implementing SS and don’t add the Global Admin Account to any of your Domain Users especially a service account.

Using The Remote Connectivity Analyzer When you cannot use your Microsoft Office 365 federated credentials to authenticate Microsoft Outlook to Exchange Online

After being on the road for a couple of weeks when I got home my Outlook wouldn’t authenticate via ADFS2 but I could login via the Portal and Lync worked without any issues. I traced the issue to a certificate error using MOSDAL. However, it was only a certificate issue due to my router blocking port 443. So I have taken this opportunity to provide a few resources from MOSDAL and the Office 365 Support Team. If your having issues with authentication or general configuration issues .

If you review URL (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2466333) it provides a few test test and possible solution. You cannot use your Microsoft Office 365 federated credentials to authenticate Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync by using a smartphone to Exchange Online services. However, since port 443 was blocked my phone didn’t sync either.

Use Microsoft Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer to test whether the on-premises AD FS 2.0 service is causing Outlook logon problems for single sign-on (SSO)-enabled users. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. In Internet Explorer, browse to https://testexchangeconnectivity.com.
  2. On the Office 365 tab, under Microsoft Office Outlook Connectivity Tests, click Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTP), and then click Next.
  3. Type the email address and credentials, click to select the acknowledgement check box near the bottom of the page, type the verification code, and then click Perform Test. This test should be run two times. Run the test by using the following credentials:
    • An SSO-enabled user account that has a mailbox in Exchange Online
    • A standard user account that has a mailbox in Exchange Online

    Verify the results of both tests to determine whether AD FS 2.0 is causing the Outlook sign-in issue.

    1. a. Drill down to the following node of the Test Details tree:
      1. Testing RPC/HTTP connectivity
        1. - ExRCA is attempting to test Autodiscover for john@contoso.com
          1. - Attempting each method of contacting the Autodiscover service
            1. - Attempting to contact the Autodiscover service using the HTTP redirect method
              1. - Attempting to send an Autodiscover POST request to potential Autodiscover URLs
                1. - ExRCA is attempting to retrieve an XML Autodiscover response from URL htts://autodiscover-s.outlook.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml for user

    2. b. Check whether the following conditions are true:
    3. The SSO-enabled user account cannot access Autodiscover and receives an "HTTP 401 authorized response" error message. The standard user account can access Autodiscover. If both conditions are true, you have confirmed that SSO failures are causing Outlook authentication to fail.

You have a couple of choices when running the tool and its invaluable in resolving a number of issues. I chose to run the Office 3665 SSO Test..

SharePoint Saturday Utah Speaker Schedule #SPSUTAH

I hear there were some from Boise Idaho, and from Montana who were considering coming to SharePoint Saturday Utah. We totally welcome the Idaho folks to come, and Montana, Wyoming, and Nevada too! If you’re a college student and looking to investigate SharePoint Development, see what the BI capabilities are, to dig in on SharePoint branding, or even as a business and end user you’ll find we have multiple tracks from the 100 level on up! REPOSTED FROM JOEL

With sessions like Becky Isserman’s Epic SharePoint Battle: Silverlight vs HTML 5. I wouldn’t expect less! 6 Tracks with 30 sessions, and over 25 speakers flying in from all over the country and converging in the Wasatch I want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to feel welcome. I can’t guarantee if you don’t sign up soon that we’ll have a spot. I do want to encourage you to come and bring your friends. Spread the message! Looking forward to seeing you on December 3rd.

Microsoft MOSDAL Support for Office 365, Part 1

image

This tool is designed to collect system configuration and network information in order to assist Microsoft support engineers with troubleshooting . the information will be packaged in a zip so you can easily send it to a Microsoft Support Engineer.

Welcome to MSODAL Support

image

Please select which language you would like to use and the wizard mode is recommended for first time users.

Also, we are going to skip entering our credentials this time and bypass Office 365 authentication tests.

 

Wizard Mode 1

image

 

Click Wizard Mode, leave data Collections checked and click next

image

Wizard Mode, Please close all other Applications such as Outlook or Lync before proceeding.

image

Then restart the application you had trouble with and reproduce the issue. After finishing click the generate report button.

image

Diagnostic Complete

image

Thank you for using MOSDAL. Please open the log files folder and transmit the logs file to your Microsoft Support Engineer. Click Close MOSDAL to open the log file location.

The Log file location is my documents MOSDAL folder

image

Since I chose the default settings and not to authenticate MOSDAL did not collect any ADFS information

image

However, I noticed a lot of information in the Communicator folder so I took a look at the Office Communicator File Versions.txt file and found I have different version of communicator installed.

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Lync\communicator.exe file version is 4.0.7577.314
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Lync\ocoffice.dll file version is 4.0.7577.0

image

image

I also, notice information in the ,net folder that listed the .Net Framework Versions Installed on this system:
.NET Framework v1.0.3705 is NOT installed.
.NET Framework v1.1.4322 is NOT installed.
.NET Framework v2.0.50727 is installed.
.NET Framework v3.0 is installed.
.NET Framework v3.5 is installed.

I am going to stop here and leave the rest for part 2. t this point I love the tool it is easy to use and even with the basic options collects so much information on your environment that I recommend running it after you migrate or just start using Office 365. MOSDAL reminds me of SPSReports for SharePoint and the MPSReports MCS to uses in the field. MOSDAL does a good job of collecting a wealth of information and whether you are working with Premier Support or supporting your self the information is invaluable and collected in one place in a readable format.

Thank you, Microsoft and the Office365 Team for providing us another tool to resolve issues in our environment specifically for folks that have deployed Office 365.

-Ivan
