Microsoft Exchange Connectivity test check

Microsoft
Wanted to share a great tool from Microsoft (I sound like it's a sponsored tutorial) which has helped me a great deal in troubleshooting costumers migration from GSuite to Exchange Online. To be honest, my problem was with the Outlook Autodiscover feature and this tool put me in the right direction. Btw, Autodiscover service is to establish initial connections to Exchange user mailboxes. Tool is called Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer and you can visit it here -> https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/ This tool is not just for Microsoft Exchange tests, it also includes troubleshooting for Lync, Office365 etc. Be sure to have all the right usernames and passwords.

Cisco
There was a strange problem at my costumers site where out of the sudden the Internet speeds were inconsistent.

In my case it was the speed 100Mbps   For some reason they would not negotiate when interface speed was set to auto.          …

Migrate G Suite email to Microsoft Exchange Online

[wp_ad_camp_1]   ***The only thing that was missing was to allow less secure apps to get connected to GSuite and I got to that information via Google (not official documentation).*** Additional, the process of syncing could take even a few hours since the official Google bandwith limit for IMAP is 2500MB per day. It is a cool feeling when you succeed in this kind of data migration!
