I am currently working to build up several tools my daily work tasks. And there’s one I’ve been avoiding, because I just have no idea how to approach it, and whether PowerShell is the language I should be using.
Reconfiguring outlook profiles to Office 365. It’s totally possible with on-premise, using a .prf, but with autodiscover, the server name is dynamic, so hard coding in a server name is not possible. I find this crazy that I can’t figure this out as I would expect it to be something the Office 365 team would want to make it possible.
I have managed to design a tool which creates a share, downloads 365 to it, deploys a GPO to the client with a customisable icon appearing on desktops, which can uninstall any version of office and re-install the new one, while displaying a beautiful little progress bar, but I can’t make a script which utilizes autodiscover… driving me crazy a bit!
Please let me know if anyone else has faced this issue and any ideas would be much appreciated!
