Quick post on getting started with Chocolatey.
We have a customer who is using Colligo Engage for Outlook, uploading emails to SharePoint Online and tagging them with some additional metadata for other departments to keep track of what is occurring.
All of that is well and good but the name column was just too long to display along with all the other columns in the library view.

Here is how it is done.
A customer recently reported that passwords changed on premise weren’t being reflected in Office 365. Running a full sync in the FIMs client was the solution.
Emergency support can be a bit stressful, especially out of hours on a system you’ve never worked on before.
We recently needed to step in to help a customer who’s 2 node SQL cluster had gone down late one night and managed to get it backup in a few hours after a major disk corruption on the data and logs volume of cluster shared disks taking our the system databases and the user databases.
