Lync Server 2013 and Enterprise Voice issues

Had a “funny” problem the other day, where a customer who I installed Lync Server 2013 for was struggling. They were experiencing that incoming calls would appear twice (two toasts) whenever simultaneous ring or Call-forwarding was enabled. Normal outbound calls to the same forwarded number was working.

Since my Lync running the test account was on a Virtual machine with no sound Device, I was not sure whether I could trust the results.

Moving my blog to WordPress

I finally decided to move my blog from my Office 365 / Sharepoint Online site to WordPress. To establish my blog in the first place I had to do a great deal of research on how to bypass the shortcomings of the Small Business Subscription plan I was running there, and the Public facing site was not initially set up to support blogs for example.

I am also more satisfied by the way this blog (WordPress) appears in both browsers and mobile devices, as well as the Widgets and so on, readily available.

New posts will be put here, and for the old ones I will be moving them continuously.

Hope you find as much pleasure reading my posts as I do writing them!

This Christmas Holiday project for me was installing Windows 8 on my laptop, really starting to use it at work.
Previously I had installed it on both a virtual machine as well as on a demo workstation at work, but to really tap into
the bits and pieces of the new OS I had no choice but taking the full leap.
