Supporting IPv6-only Networks

At WWDC 2015 we announced the transition to IPv6-only network services in iOS 9. Starting June 1, 2016 all apps submitted to the App Store must support IPv6-only networking. Most apps will not require any changes because IPv6 is already supported by NSURLSession and CFNetwork APIs.

If your app uses IPv4-specific APIs or hard-coded IP addresses, you will need to make some changes. Learn how to ensure compatibility by reading Supporting IPv6 DNS64/NAT64 Networks and watch Your App and Next Generation Networks.

Announcing simple and powerful file sharing and...

Effectively managing and sharing files is critical to almost every organization. Today, we’re announcing a bold new vision for file management in Office 365 across OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online, and new ways for you to share and collaborate on all your files on any device. We’ll also talk about how we’re moving beyond utility file sync and share by bringing intelligent discovery to recommend content, as well as providing insights on the impact and reach of your work.

OneDrive recap

It’s been a breakthrough year for OneDrive. We’ve made important advances with rock-solid, reliable sync on your PC and Mac, deep Office integration, four-star and above–rated mobile apps and a fast, intuitive browser experience. Additionally, we’ve built lots of new admin and security controls for IT to protect critical corporate data. Great progress, but as always, there is more to do! Later this year, we’ll make it possible for you to sync files stored in any SharePoint...

The SharePoint Framework—an open and connected...

Today, we announced The Future of SharePoint, which detailed our vision, roadmap and significant investments across the user experiences in SharePoint Online. We’re excited by the potential and ability for our customers and professional developers to innovate on these scenarios and drive them to the next level.

Our partners, customers and independent developers have created innovative solutions using SharePoint’s Page and Web Part model, which was largely implemented in .NET and, like many content and collaboration systems, was designed and matured in the server-rendered era.

Server-side development.

As technologies and connectivity have evolved, JavaScript language and performance have advanced substantially. We can go back to distributed computing and build rich, fast, interactive user experiences on the client. And we can build responsive interfaces that run...

SharePoint—the mobile and intelligent intranet

The intranet is at the epicenter of many organizations, as the place where employees can get company news and information, plus search for people and content.

Now, we will make the intranet a more personalized experience, one that is where you need it, when you need it. Welcome to the mobile and intelligent intranet. Spanning on-premises and Office 365, the mobile and intelligent intranet brings together the productivity of SharePoint Team Sites, the broadcast reach of publishing sites and portals, and the mission criticality of your most important business applications—accessible from your desktop to your mobile phone—and powered by the Office Graph, so information finds you, instead of you having to find information.

Today, we announced The Future of SharePoint, which detailed our vision and innovations, including the new SharePoint mobile app, a new SharePoint home in Office...

Office Online Server now available

We are excited to announce the release of Office Online Server (OOS), which allows organizations to deliver browser-based versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote, among other capabilities. Microsoft recognizes that many organizations still value running server products on-premises for a variety of reasons. With OOS, you get the same functionality we offer with Office Online in your own datacenter. OOS is the successor to Office Web Apps Server 2013.

OOS scales well for your enterprise whether you have 100 employees or 100,000. The architecture enables one OOS farm to serve multiple SharePoint, Exchange and Skype for Business instances. OOS is designed to work with SharePoint Server 2016, Exchange Server 2016 and Skype for Business Server 2016. It is also backwards compatible with SharePoint Server 2013, Exchange Server...

Today’s post was written by Carl Dawson, IT director for Marks & Spencer.

Marks & Spencer (M&S) has come a long way from the Penny Bazaar stall opened by Michael Marks in Leeds Kirkgate Market back in 1884. Today, we sell quality products at great value to 33 million customers through our 900 stores in the United Kingdom.

BCC all mail to an OS X Server to an Email address

I’m pretty big on privacy. Actually, I don’t need much privacy; I’m an open book. But I try to be very respectful of the privacy of others. Still, there are certain valid circumstances to send all mail that goes to an OS X Server to an email address. Maybe you have an automation that picks up mail from support staff and files it into software for ticketing, maybe you have a legal hold. In many cases, it’s not my place to judge the validity of such requests; only to find ways to implement them.

To bcc all mail to an OS X Server, first disable the feature from Postfix so you can enable it in serveradmin. First, edit the postfix config file, /Library/Server/Mail/Config/postfix/main.cf. Open the file in your favorite text editor and remove the line that starts with always_bcc. Then close the file and save.

Next, run the following command to enable the option:

sudo serveradmin settings mail:postfix:always_bcc_enabled = yes

And finally, define the email...

Our journey into the world of OneNote

Today’s post was written by Gerald B. Johnson, data support specialist at Feldwood Elementary School in College Park, Georgia.

As the data support specialist at Feldwood Elementary School, my role is to support teachers in using their students’ assessment results and to support my principal in identifying key data points for decision making. As I began planning how to facilitate these tasks effectively, I knew I would need a medium to organize, store and share the vast amount of information we collected throughout the school year. Like many of you, I was used to keeping a physical binder containing this information about my homeroom class. The problem I faced was that I was no longer in the classroom and needed to facilitate this process with over 30 teachers. The idea of thumbing through over thirty five-inch binders on a regular basis was not an appealing idea.

During the second semester of 2015, our school district purchased the Office 365 suite. My school...

Employee turnover is not only expensive, but it can also have a massive impact on the morale of a team. In fact, in a recent study conducted by INC, roughly three out of four employees said that their manager is the worst and most stressful part of their job. In addition, 65 percent said they would take a new manager over a pay raise. To get the best out of your teams and their talents, managers need to be able to inspire and energize their teams.

OneNote and Office Lens April roundup

Today, we are releasing several new capabilities for OneNote and Office Lens that enhance multimedia experiences, collaboration and canvas organization.

We’ve got a lot of great stuff to cover, so let’s dive in!

Multimedia

Insert and view content from YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, Sway and more, right alongside your notes. By simply pasting a video link into OneNote for Windows 10, Mac or iOS, a playable thumbnail version will appear next to it. Soon you’ll also be able to embed with copy and paste for OneNote Online.

OneNote for Windows

We updated the work and school sign-in process, so now you can sign in to OneNote for the first time using your Office 365 organization ID. We hope this eliminates potential confusion, saves time and gets people into their notes more quickly.

For OneNote for the Windows Phone, we added audio recording, giving you an additional and easier way to get your ideas down while on the go.

Today’s post was written by Rick Cooper, director of IT at Seal Industries.

Seal Industries delivers high-quality monitoring, maintenance and repair services in the petrochemical industry. We’ve built our business on a reputation for innovation and cost-effective, highly technical service options, but we had outgrown a corporate IT infrastructure that was starting to impact our business.

We have more than 600 field employees working at refineries and plants around the country. They’re equipped with state-of-the-art technology to perform their functional roles, but they had no corporate email, and no way to connect with our network if they did. Meanwhile, we have almost 100 managers and sales people at the main office who had to rely on a small infrastructure of aging on-premises servers.

We had most of the company shut out of our business loop and doing tons of actual paperwork. Back at the office, my IT...

OneNote transforms the way we work as a staff

Today’s post was written by Stewart Davies, assistant principal at the Ysgol Bae Baglan, opening in September 2016.

Ysgol Bae Baglan is a brand new, state-of-the-art school for 1,600 students aged 3–16 in Wales. The school’s team is proud to be in one of the very first schools serving students from age 3–16. Bae Baglan is the amalgamation of four very successful schools, and has students with a broad range of needs and from different socio-economic backgrounds. The school will open in September 2016 and will implement a one-to-one program with the Microsoft Surface over the next three years, starting with Year 9 from day one.

The challenge for Ysgol Bae Baglan is to have our brand new cross-phase school ready to open in September 2016. Our teachers currently work in four different schools, so we needed an effective way for them to communicate and collaborate. Eighteen months ago, we started by deciding what we needed to achieve: simple email group...

Sway featured story #2—“That Dragon, Cancer”

Last month, we kicked off our featured story series with our Sway on Nathan Sawaya. Nathan’s inventive use of LEGO blocks to create works of art strongly embodies Sway’s mission to provide an adaptable medium that empowers everyone to tell their stories in unique, innovative and delightful ways.

Our second piece features the profoundly moving story of the family behind the video game “That Dragon, Cancer” and the film “Thank You for Playing.” Ryan and Amy are the parents of Joel Green, who was diagnosed with cancer when he was just a year old. Ryan, a game designer, first began developing the game to express his feelings about their family’s struggles. Over time, it became the couple’s way to broaden the conversation about cancer, uncertainty and death. Amy notes that people...

Indivior poised for growth with Office 365

The pharmaceuticals industry is in a constant state of flux. To succeed in this dynamic atmosphere, companies like Indivior need to stay flexible so that they can fold in those new business units or quickly launch new ones, as the case may be. In December 2014, Indivior became an independent company through a demerger from its former parent company. As a result, we had to quickly stand up a brand new IT environment, separate from what we’d known, including everything from phone systems and desktop support to business applications and email.

It’s a common pitfall to worry so much about the short-term timeline that a company doesn’t plan for the future, but we didn’t make that mistake. We knew that we wanted to structure our environment to not just get us launched on time, but to put us in a position to grow quickly on a global scale.

That’s why we adopted Microsoft Office 365. After all, in the pharmaceuticals industry, document and file formats are critical because we...

Automatically Cache Updates To Your OS X Server

A little while back, I did a little writeup on how the OS X Caching Server caches updates at http://krypted.com/mac-security/how-the-os-x-caching-server-caches-updates/. The goal was to reverse engineer parts of how it worked for a couple of different reasons. The first was to get updates for devices to cache to my caching server prior to 15 people coming in before it’s cached and having caching it down on their own.

So here’s a little script I call precache. It’s a little script that can be used to cache available Apple updates into an OS X Server that is running the Caching Service. To use, run the script followed by the name of the model. For example, for an iPad 2,1, you would use the following syntax:

sudo python precache.py iPad2,1

To eliminate beta operating systems from your precache,use the –no-beta argument:

sudo python precache.py iPad2,1 --no-beta

20 Things To Do In Austin While Attending ACES

Things to Do In Austin In May

Diverse, fun and infused with culture, Austin is the capital of Texas and home to a prosperous community and a wide variety of culture, from the world class cuisine in the many fine restaurants, the growing population of infamous tech companies, the summer festivals and creative atmosphere, to the magnificent country music in what is also referred to as the Live music capital of the world (although Nashville, Athens, and other cities might have some arguing of that point).

Here are some great things to do when you visit Austin: 

  1. Austin City Limits

I grew up seeing acts including Willie Nelson, Little Feat, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Lyle Lovett, Merle Haggard, George Strait, REM, and everyone who was anyone play at Austin City Limits. The same is true today. It’s like playing at the Grand Ole Opry, but open to acts that today include the Arctic Monkeys, Lumineers,...

Run A Caching Server On A Computer Without Ethernet

I do a lot of testing on MacBook Airs and the latest MacBooks. Neither have a built-in Ethernet port and I try not to travel with one. But, when you enable the Caching Server service in OS X on a machine without an active Ethernet connection, the AssetCache will report an error of the following:

Wireless portable computer not supported

The cause is pretty obvious, but bypassable because of how the sanity check was built. Simply run the following:

sudo serveradmin settings caching:Interface = en0

Now try again. Enjoy.

PS: Since people always jump on the article where I talk about how to do things that shouldn’t be done in production, I mostly use this for testing. Don’t do it in production… And if you enjoy being judgmental about things, please feel free to find something constructive to do with your time, like write up how to do something that everyone else can judge you harshly for…

Atkins to become “digital by default” with move to...

Today’s post was written by Ron Markezich, corporate vice president for Microsoft.

It’s amazing to watch how some of the world’s most innovative and forward-thinking companies are using Microsoft Office 365 to transform their businesses. The latest example is Atkins, one of the world’s leading engineering, design and project management consultancies, which has chosen to roll out Office 365 E5 to over 18,600 employees worldwide. Office 365 E5 is our most comprehensive Office 365 offering ever, providing the core Office apps, plus email, cloud storage, a robust set of team collaboration capabilities, Skype for Business meetings and voice services, and advanced security and analytics capabilities. Atkins selected Office 365 to help achieve its goal of moving all its IT systems to the cloud.

Richard Cross, chief information officer and chief digital officer at Atkins. He refers to his company’s cloud transformation as one that will result in Atkins being “digital...

Migrating Objects From Active Directory To Apple...

Apple School Manager is a portal used to create classes, import students, manage Managed Apple IDs, and link all these things together. You can use a Student Information System (SIS) to create these classes, import students, etc. But, only if you have a SIS with an API that Apple links to. If you don’t, you’ll need to import data using csv files. And you’ll need to import four csv files: Classes, Instructors, Staff, and of course Students.

Many schools will already have this data in Active Directory or another LDAP-based solution. Here, we’ll look at getting the information out of Active Directory and into csv. The LDIFDE utility exports and imports objects from and to Active Directory using the ldif format, which is kinda’ like csv when it gets really drunk and can’t stay on one line. Luckily, ldif can’t drive. Actually, each attribute/field is on a line (which allows for arrays) and an empty line starts the next record. Which can make for a pretty messy looking file the...

Global manufacturer switches to Office 365 to...

Today’s post was written by Gary Cantrell, CIO of Jabil.

These are exciting times in the manufacturing industry. Disruptive innovation across many sectors—digital manufacturing, intelligent supply chains, self-optimizing factory machines, new build-to-demand manufacturing paradigms—are all pushing the rate of change exponentially. Against this backdrop, product lifecycles are shrinking while consumer expectations for customized products are growing.

At Jabil, we see these trends as business opportunities. To compete in today’s digital economy, we’re diversifying into new markets, expanding our global supply chain management services and building intelligent factory solutions. And to win these opportunities, Jabil needs an enterprise-grade business productivity platform that tens of thousands of employees can use to collaborate anytime, from anywhere, and on any device across 110 plants in nearly 30 countries.

OneNote Class Notebook as an e-Portfolio

Today’s post was written by Edita Rabizaite, ESL teacher and ICT coordinator at the Kaunas Kazys Grinius Progymnasium School in Lithuania.

I have been working with kids, teachers and parents since 2012 on the concept of portfolio. A few years ago, I chose OneNote to create portfolios for my students and teachers. Back then, I was looking for a simple solution for kids and teachers to understand. OneNote, which looked familiar to teachers and students (like a digital notebook) proved to be a great tool for portfolios. It was easy for teachers and students to learn how to use. Many tools used for portfolios were technically hard for teachers to understand and for students to find all their work in one place and not scattered. OneNote helped me to create a class portfolio where all students and teachers in one class were connected in one place. It is hard to imagine it now, but in 2014, I created a folder in...

Run a script directly from github

There are a lot of scripts stored on github. And you can run them directly by curling them into bash. To do so, you’ll need a link to the raw script (using the github page with the URL of the script brings in all the cruft, so you’ll need to find the raw text). To grab that, click on the page with the script and then right-click  on Raw, as seen here:

Then, throw out a bash command followed by < and then the URL you just copied into your clipboard in parenthesis:

Exchange Server 2007—end of support coming next year

Last week marked one year until Exchange Server 2007 reaches the end of its support lifecycle. Customers who are using Exchange Server 2007 for any of their email and calendar services should begin planning to move the associated mailbox data and resources to Office 365 or update their infrastructure to a newer version of Exchange, such as Exchange Server 2016.

Email server technology has evolved significantly in the nearly 10 years since Exchange Server 2007 became available. Modern Exchange Server versions incorporate major changes in the technologies that enable data high availability and communication between Outlook and Exchange Server; greatly simplify the creation of hybrid connectivity between on-premises Exchange infrastructure and Office 365; and support collaboration scenarios such as modern attachments.

Exchange Server 2007 customers who want to use this opportunity to migrate...

Today’s post was written by Lauren Pittman, special education teacher at Holly Springs Elementary School in Georgia.

As an educator, you see a lot of technology floating around and you wonder to yourself which ones are useful, or worth the money. Well, look no further, my friends. Microsoft has invested not only money but a great deal of time to make our job as educators easier. They have given us a one-stop shop in Office 365 and a range of lesson tools such as PowerPoint and Sway. However, one of the most incredible tools they have designed is OneNote. OneNote is a digital binder that can house your entire classroom. It gives you real-time access to student work, the ability to send an assignment to an entire class at one time and a way to organize student work without using paper. OneNote has the ability to transform your classroom from paper-dependent to paper-...

Enable Apple Configurator Debug Logs

Apple Configurator 2 is a great tool. But you need to debug things from time to time. This might mean that a profile is misconfigured and not installing, or that a device can’t perform a task you are sending it to be performed. This is about the time that you need to enable some debug logs. To do so, quit Apple Configurator and then write a string of ALL into the ACULogLevel key in ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.configurator.ui/Data/Library/Preferences/com.apple.configurator.ui.plist:

defaults write ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.configurator.ui/Data/Library/Preferences/com.apple.configurator.ui.plist ACULogLevel -string ALL

Scripting The OS X Caching Server To Cache Updates

The Caching Server in OS X is a little bit of a black box. But, it’s not all that complicated, compared to some things in the IT world. I’d previously written about command line management of the service itself here. When you enable the caching service, the server registers itself as a valid Caching Server. Nearby devices then lookup the closest update server with Apple and register with that update server using a GUID:

/Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/usr/sbin/serveradmin settings caching:ServerGUID

Then, each time the device looks for an update, it does so against http://mesu.apple.com/assets/com_apple_MobileAsset_SoftwareUpdate/...

Mott MacDonald provides engineering, management and development consultancy services for some of the world’s most challenging and complex projects, from hydropower plants in Peru and Vietnam to the Channel Tunnel connecting England and France. Collaboration is at the heart of success for this Croydon, UK–based company. The company needed an integrated digital solution that would help drive innovation and productivity by streamlining collaboration, increasing efficiency and enhancing mobility for its global workforce. Office 365 was the answer.

The company knew that implementing Office 365 would be just the first step on its journey, and that driving adoption of the new platform would be critical. Simon Denton, a business architect at Mott MacDonald, has been helping to lead the charge around end-user adoption. He turned to Microsoft FastTrack* for insight and resources.

New opportunities for real estate on a global scale...

Today’s Microsoft Office 365 post was written by Robert Franch, chief technology officer at Cushman & Wakefield.

Increased density and continued development generate plenty of activity, with buyers and sellers looking for the right properties in the ideal locations at the perfect price. Cushman & Wakefield operates out of more than 400 offices across 60 countries, and our 43,000 employees work with customers in every corner of the world. We’ve more than doubled in size over the last 18 months—and we’re not done growing.

For a long time, the cloud was considered the “wave of the future.” But the future has arrived. A great cloud storage solution not only allows your employees access to files anytime, anywhere—it also makes it simple to sync files, work on the go and share and coauthor documents with ease. But more than 50 percent of organizations find cloud storage to be the riskiest cloud app category.

A big reason for that? Security threats. Despite all the data out there showing the cloud to be just as or more secure as on-premises storage, security remains the top barrier to...

Vacation is a time to relax. However, the weeks leading up to it can often be as stressful as the time off is fun, as you rush to get packed and finish all those important to-dos before you set your “Out of Office” message. We want to take one thing off your to-do list.

Outlook on the web now makes it easier to clear your calendar and automatically decline meetings before you head out for some time away from the office. When you set an automatic reply in Outlook on the web, Outlook will offer to do the following on your behalf:

  • Block your calendar so people know you’re away.
  • Clear existing meetings on your calendar by declining/canceling them.
  • Automatically send a response to incoming invitations while you’re away.

EPIC Planning in OneNote

Today’s post was written by Lynette Barker, librarian teacher at St Therese’s Primary School in New Lambton, Australia.

Creating a comprehensive and authentic learning program gives many teachers a sense of purpose and direction in the classroom. They feel more prepared, more ready to teach. Through observations and informal discussions with my teaching colleagues, it became obvious that a considerable amount of their creative planning time was spent looking through SharePoint folders, personal document libraries and USB sticks trying to locate the latest programming documents, checklists and guides. As a result, valuable time that could have been spent chatting and brainstorming with colleagues to design rich lessons was lost.

The solution—bring all documents for teaching and learning together into one dynamic workspace that is accessible by all and supports collaborative planning.

The natural tool of choice—OneNote!
