Update to the 365Tools PowerShell Module

Earlier this week, I decided to add a new function to the 365Tools PowerShell module.

This Get-MSOLIPRanges function prompts you to select one or more Office 365 Products, and then provides you with the IP Ranges used by this product, so you can whitelist these addresses in your firewall if you need to do so.

It started off as a quick write-up, but thanks to the help of Robert (Twitter) the code was cleaned up and is ready for you to use.

You can find the 365Tools module on the PowerShell gallery, so you can simply install it by running Install-Module 365Tools. The entire code for the module can be found on GitHub.

 

Dupsug Basics – Part Deux

Op 19 september 2017 organiseert de Dutch Powershell User Group weer een ‘DuPSUG Basics’ event. Op 22 maart vorig jaar was de eerste keer dat er zo’n dag georganiseerd werd. Deze zeer goed bezochte editie smaakte waarschijnlijk naar meer, want er wordt nog regelmatig gevraagd wanneer de tweede editie gehouden wordt. Op Prinsjesdag, dus!

In totaal zijn er op deze dag 7 sessies van zeven verschillende sprekers (waaronder twee MVP’s) over uiteenlopende onderwerpen, zoals SQL en Office 365. Ikzelf zal de sessie ‘Powershell for Office 365 Administrators’ verzorgen. Het volledige tijdschema is als volgt:

Tijdstip Spreker Onderwerp
9:00 Welkom.
9:15 – 10:30 Mark van de Waarsenburg Powershell basis.
10:30 – 10:40 Koffie
10:40 – 11:25 Erik Heeres Powershell Remoting.
11:30 – 12:15 Jaap Brasser [MVP] Manage your infrastructure with PowerShell.
12:15 – 13:15 Lunch
13:15 – 14:00 Robert Prust Improving your scripts.
14:00 – 14:45 Sander Stad DBAtools – PowerShell and SQL Server Working Together.
14:45 – 15:00 koffie

365Tools is in the Powershell gallery

After my previous post about my ‘open-msolconnection’ function, I decided that it would be nice if I grouped all my commonly used PowerShell scripts for managing Office 365 in a single module, so I could publish it to the PowerShell gallery… So here it is!

As of today, the 365Tools module is available from the Powershell Gallery. Of course, I’ve also created a GitHub repo for maintaining the whole thing.

Currently, the module just includes the open-msolconnection function and a function I use for reporting on mailbox sizes, licensing status, etc.

You can install the module directly from the gallery by using one simple line of code:

After that, you can see the commands that are made available through the function:

Enjoy 🙂 If you have any issues or questions regarding the module, please leave a reply to this blogpost.
