@MDMarra: Thanks for the hints, so I did: The users from O365 can be exported by powershell using Get-MsolUser | Select-Object City, Country, Department, DisplayName, Fax, FirstName, LastName, MobilePhone, Office, PasswordNeverExpires, PhoneNumber, PostalCode, SignInName, State, StreetAddress, Title, UserPrincipalName | Export-Csv C:\Temp\...

You can use the Get-MsolUser PowerShell cmdlets to export user data from Azure Active Directory and then use the New-ADUser cmdlets to take that data and create the accounts on-premises. That said, there's no turnkey way to do this. You'll have to script something.

The VPN option is better, since you won't be exposing LDAP to the outside world unnecessarily. Side note, I'd want at least one domain controller at my local site. If your link to the data center goes down, you're screwed.

You do not need to have SCCM to use forefront. You do however need it if you're planning on doing any reporting on those installed clients (i.e. compliance, tracking, etc.).

Group Policy could be adding that registry value. The gpresult tool can give you insight into the settings being applied via Group Policy. Any program running as the user could be doing it, because users have rights to modify that part of the registry by default. Being that it's changing "Every few days" I suspect it's not Group Policy that's doing it (...

While oleschri's answer is quite comprehensive, I want to add some additional detail. In my observations, I do not see MpOAv impacting or being related to this issue. Removing the Extension Validation key also does not change any behaviors I experience - the rest of the post got me to dig further... When using Internet Explorer 11 and visiting many Google ...

Reproducing the problem Assuming you have installed Microsoft Windows 7+ / Server 2008 R2+ Microsoft Internet Explorer 11+ (IE) Adobe PDF Reader 11+ (Reader) Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection / Microsoft Malware Protection (MalwareProtection) the following seems to happen here: MalwareProtection registers a component named Microsoft Antimalware ...

In this case TMG would just be acting as a NAT boundary. There's nothing special about TMG here, and if you've already got a firewall or L3 device separating your test environment from your prod environment, you can just configure the NAT there instead and save the headache. But, to answer your actual question, yes you can use TMG for this if you'd like.

The main difference is Endpoint Protection 20102 is integrated into Configuration Manager 2012—it's no longer a separate piece. When you deploy Endpoint Protection 2012 from Configuration Manager, it will remove existing AV solutions, including previous versions of Forefront. See here: About Client Settings in Configuration Manager I would assume you would ...

AS Jscott says you can configure it and i will operate perfectly without System Center Configuration Manager but you will lose the reports and alerts components.

Oleschri's explination is highly accurate. One MS Support explanation was this a few days ago: "After internal analysis and working with partners, we believe we’ve identified the root cause as a problem with how Adobe is using our registry key in IE, resulting in Adobe behaving as if it is blocked or not installed even though it is. The problem has been ...

Are you sure mail flow is going directly from your Hybrid server to O365? When you ran the hybrid wizard it should have created connectors locally and in O365, which will tread mail flow between the forests as internal mail. This means it will bypass the EOP/Spam checks and you should never see those SPF messages. If your edge device is modifying the ...

As a test, temporarily enable the security policy "Audit: Audit the use of Backup and Restore privilege". Also ensure you have the "Audit privilege use" policy enabled. If you are using Advanced auditing, ensure you have the "Audit: Force audit policy subcategory settings (Windows Vista or later) to override audit policy category settings." enabled. ...

Download Process Monitor and set up a filter that has the path to the video files. Have this running before 10pm and watch the output while the files are delete. Whatever is going into the folder and deleting the files will show up

Not an expert here, it's been a very long time since I played with Exchange but I'll try to answer to the best of my ability. Lets discus the design for a second, why don't you route all traffic to EOP first and then to your in-premises Exchange servers? you're losing a good functionality there, it would definitely make things easier for you to control spam ...

Thanks to both oleschri and Jair for the information; it has been extremely helpful. One thing I would like to add is that this issue only affects my users that have UAC turned off. If you watch Procmon while forcing the issue to occur (by going to google images...) you will notice that IE is looking for the below key and failing with the result "NAME ...

I see no reason why it wouldn't work, but it's not recommended practise. Ideally a TMG server (like ISA before it) should be used for TMG and nothing more, with the exception of the Exchange Edge Transport Role with Forefront Protection for Exchange.

Yes they're allowed and supported (but not your last 2 examples, can't use it for a drive letter, see link updated in 2014: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2962341

The above mentioned settings are enough. What was missing was the "activate" stage, performed by clicking on the button next to the save button. It's not enough to save the settings or even reset IIS.

Using the Windows 7 VPN client Log onto the PC as a Local Administrator. Create a new VPN Connection, Make sure you tick the option to Allow other people to use the connection. Log off.

You'd have to use an add on like bandwidth splitter

At one point my team discussed placing a Forefront / ISA type box into the DMZ that all inbound traffic would land on prior to being bounced into the internal network. My goal was to publish Exchange 2003 via a DMZ and have all the traffic sanitized before it reached my internal network without the need to replace our PIX or otherwise make make major ...

The best place to go is to spend a few days taking the RampUp course for configuring it. There is a lot of information on getting started http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/399.forefront-identity-manager-resources-en-us.aspx#Getting_Started i think the virtual machines and step by step guidance from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...

Either: The client doesn't have the CA Root cert installed on their computer, in the Trust Root Certs folder. The CRL URL in the Certificate can't be resolved by the client, or returns an outdated CRL. By default MS CAs are configured to publish CRLs only to AD, which is not accessible from the outside world. MSTSC 6.0+ will return this error if they can't ...

In the end I opted for a method to allow all traffic out from the Skype executable but not from anything else. Since Forefront cannot reliably determine the executable that is being executed under I opted to create a rule that allows all traffic outbound for a specific user / user group and force Skype to execute under that user / group. The following AutoIT ...

conf t int f1/8 switchport trunk allowed vlan remove 1 This will remove vlan 1 from being trunked on that port.

interface f1/8 switchport trunk allowed vlan remove 1 This will stop the vlan 1 traffic from being sent over the port.
