Among the various announcements and news snippets released this week is the juicy morsel that Microsoft will support placement of the witness server for a Database Availability Group (DAG) in Azure from January 2015 onwards. No doubt a formal announcement will be published on the EHLO blog.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/tony-redmonds-exchange-unwashed-0">Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/azure-beckons-exchange-dag-witness-servers" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/azure-beckons-exchange-dag-witness-servers#comments Exchange Server 2013 Azure Azure DAG DAG Database Availability Group Database Availability Group Exchange 2013 Exchange 2013 high availability High Availability witness server witness server Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Blog Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Fri, 31 Oct 2014 15:00:00 +0000 121231 at http://windowsitpro.com Office Delve, Exchange mailboxes and even perhaps public folders http://windowsitpro.com/blog/office-delve-exchange-mailboxes-and-even-perhaps-public-folders <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>From the perspective of a platform to enable collaboration, public folders are crude and unwieldy. Unsurprisingly, because public folders have received relatively little development since their introduction in Exchange 4.0 in 1996, they really don&rsquo;t deliver a very good collaboration experience. You put stuff into folders to share it with others; they access the items and maybe update them, and that&rsquo;s about it.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/tony-redmonds-exchange-unwashed-0">Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/office-delve-exchange-mailboxes-and-even-perhaps-public-folders" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/office-delve-exchange-mailboxes-and-even-perhaps-public-folders#comments Exchange Server 2013 Office 365 Exchange 2013 CU6 Exchange 2013 CU6 Exchange Online Exchange Online Office 365 Office 365 Office Delve Office Delve OneDrive for Business OneDrive for Business People View People View Public Folders Public Folders SharePoint SharePoint Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Blog Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Thu, 30 Oct 2014 13:00:00 +0000 117821 at http://windowsitpro.com Quickly Get the Data You Need for Troubleshooting Exchange Server 2013 Problems http://windowsitpro.com/exchange-server-2013/quickly-get-data-you-need-troubleshooting-exchange-server-2013-problems <div class="field-deck"> Two tools make short order of an otherwise intimidating task </div> <div class="node-body article-body">With the Exchange Diagnostic Service and a PowerShell script, you can quickly get the performance data you need to troubleshooting problems in Exchange Server 2013.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/exchange-server-2013/quickly-get-data-you-need-troubleshooting-exchange-server-2013-problems" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/exchange-server-2013/quickly-get-data-you-need-troubleshooting-exchange-server-2013-problems#comments Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Diagnostic Service Exchange Diagnostic Service Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Server 2013 performance monitoring performance monitoring performance troubleshooting performance troubleshooting Windows PowerShell Windows PowerShell Fri, 24 Oct 2014 12:00:00 +0000 120431 at http://windowsitpro.com <p><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; line-height: 107%; mso-fareast-font-family: Calibri; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA">Exchange Diagnostic Service</span></p> The fallacy of the workstation File Share Witness http://windowsitpro.com/blog/fallacy-workstation-file-share-witness <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>The hoary old theory that you can use a Windows 7/8 workstation to act as the witness server for an Exchange Database Availability Group (DAG) has been doing the rounds. Granted, it is a theory and no one that I know has yet succumbed to the desire to attempt to implement such a configuration. But as a public service, let me say for once and for all that the idea is unsupported, ill-advised, unpredictable, and just plain silly.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/tony-redmonds-exchange-unwashed-0">Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/fallacy-workstation-file-share-witness" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/fallacy-workstation-file-share-witness#comments Exchange Server 2013 DAG DAG Database Availability Group Database Availability Group Exchange 2013 Exchange 2013 failover cluster failover cluster FSW FSW high availability High Availability Server Server witness server witness server workstation workstation Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Blog Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Thu, 23 Oct 2014 12:00:00 +0000 113001 at http://windowsitpro.com Appointments reappear in OWA calendar as one Chrome bug is fixed http://windowsitpro.com/blog/appointments-reappear-owa-calendar-one-chrome-bug-fixed <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>Users of Outlook Web App (OWA) who like to use the Chrome browser have run into choppy waters recently.
