Intune und die Verwendung von ADMX GPO Einstellungen

Bis vor einer noch nicht so langer Zeit, gab es eine große Hürde bei der Einführung von Intune in Unternehmen, es war nämlich nicht möglich Gruppenrichtlinien (GPO´s) auf den Intune verwalteten Geräten zu verteilen. Dieses Defizit wurde nun von Microsoft behoben, mit den ADMX backed policies ist es nun möglich, diese Lücke zu füllen.

 

GPO in Intune sind nun möglich

Für viele Unternehmen stellte sich beim Einsatz von Intune – z.B. zur Gewährleistung von Compliance Anforderung – bisher die Hürde, dass keine Gruppenrichtlinien bzw. Registry-Einträge durch Intune möglich waren. Gerade wenn eine Mischumgebung aus hybrid-verwalteten Geräten und Geräten mit reinem Azure AD join zum Einsatz kamen.

 

In diesem Fall musste eine Doppelpflege vorgenommen werden, auf der einen Seite On-Premise in Form von GPO Einstellungen und auf der anderen Seite Einstellungen in Intune. Die Problematik dabei ist nur, das mit den GPO´s mehr Einstellungen möglich sind.

 

MODERNE RICHTLINIEN & MONITORING

Mit den in Windows 10 integrierte Microsoft Configuration Service Providers (CSPs), welche nun im Systemkern vorhanden sind, womit die Anwendung von OMA-URI-Einstellungen (Open Mobile Alliance Uniform Resource Identifier), wie in den mobilen Plattformen Android und iOS, ermöglicht werden.

 

Dieses Verfahren hat einen großen Vorteil: Richtlinienanwendungen – bzw. eine Einstellung daraus – lässt sich nun zentral über die Intune-Console monitoren.

 

Microsoft Intune setzt hierbei zudem auf ein mehrstufiges Verfahren zur Richtlinien-Prüfung: Zum einen meldet der Client zurück, ob eine Richtlinie erfolgreich angewendet werden konnte. Über eine separate Konformitätsrichtlinie wird zudem geprüft, ob das Endgerät zu den Richtlinien kompatibel ist, die man zur Wahrung eines Sicherheitsstands im Unternehmen definiert hat. Ist das Gerät aus der Sicht der Security nicht kompatibel – etwa weil es nicht verschlüsselt ist oder ein Viren-Infekt nicht behoben werden konnte –, so wird es z.B. von den Office 365 Diensten ausgesperrt.

 

Eine Konfigurationsprüfung und die Konformität zu trennenstellt sich durchaus als sinnvoll dar: Es wäre falsch, einen Nutzer auszusperren, nur weil vielleicht das Hintergrundbild falsch gesetzt wurde.

 

Das Intune bietet zwar schon recht viele Einstellungen an, die auch über Schalter aktiviert werden können, aber über die ADMX backed policies werden diese Möglichkeiten nun deutlich erweitert.

 

Einstellungen in Microsoft Intune

Microsoft führt eine umfangreiche Dokumentation bereits importierter CSP-Einstellungen. Für diese CSP-Settings ist beschrieben in welcher Windows Version sie zur Verfügung stehen, in welcher ADMX-Datei sie zu finden sind und wie die ID der einzelnen Optionen lauten.

Erstellen und Bereitstellen von PFX-Zertifikatsprofilen in Microsoft Intune

In vielen Kundensituationen kommt es immer wieder vor, das Kunden Zertifikate an mobile Geräte senden möchten, um mit Ressourcenzugriffsprofilen (WLAN, S / MIME etc.) zu arbeiten und den Zugriff über ein Zertifikat aus der internen CA abzusichern. Aus der Sicht der Sicherheit aber nicht den NDES (Network Device Enrollment Server), der ja über das SCEP Protokoll arbeitet, über eine URL im Internet publizieren möchten.

 

Microsoft Intune verfügt hierfür über eine weniger bekannte PKCS # 12 (PFX) -basierte Zertifikatsbereitstellung, die in diesem Szenario verwendet werden kann

 

In den vorherigen Versionen musste ein Administrator eine PFX-Datei bereitstellen, die dann auf dem Gerät eingebunden werden musste. Dies hat sich nun in Intune geändert, die PFX Datei muss nun nicht mehr bereitgestellt werden. Mit der  Hilfe des Intune Certificate Connector, können nun Geräte ein Zertifikat aus der lokalen Zertifizierungsstelle automatisiert erhalten. Hierfür wird der NDES Service nicht mehr benötigt.

Product Key per Powershell auslesen

Die Frage die immer wieder gestellt wurde, ist es möglich per Powershell den Product Key von Microsoft Windows Betriebssystemen auszulesen?

 

Ja es ist möglich. Hier nachfolgend ein kleines Powershell Script, womit der Product Key ausgelesen werden kann (Nutzung auf eigene Gefahr).

 

$map="BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789"

$value = (get-itemproperty "HKLM:\\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion").digitalproductid[0x34..0x42]

$ProductKey = ""

for ($i = 24; $i -ge 0; $i--) {

 $r = 0

 for ($j = 14; $j -ge 0; $j--) {

  $r = ($r * 256) -bxor $value[$j]

  $value[$j] = [math]::Floor([double]($r/24))

  $r = $r % 24

 }

 $ProductKey = $map[$r] + $ProductKey

 if (($i % 5) -eq 0 -and $i -ne 0) {

  $ProductKey = "-" + $ProductKey

 }

}

echo "Product Key:" $ProductKey

Whitespace in einer Microsoft Exchange Datenbank entfernen

Wenn Daten zu einer Exchange-Datenbank hinzufügt werden, erhöht sich damit zwangsläufig die Größe der Microsoft Exchange Datenbank. Wenn jedoch Postfächer gelöscht werden, nimmt die Größe der Microsoft Exchange-Datenbank nicht unbedingt ab - sie bleibt gleich.

What’s New in Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Build 2024 Edition (Thu, 23 May 2024)
This special edition of “What's New in Microsoft Teams” highlights exciting features and improvements that we are announcing at Microsoft Build 2024. Read on to learn more about features that will help developers be more productive and collaborate in Teams, enhancements to Azure Communication Services for more powerful embeddable communication experiences, and improvements for meeting recaps. I’d also encourage you to check out the Official Microsoft Blog and "New agent capabilities in Microsoft Copilot unlock business value" for more exciting news. In addition to Microsoft Build news, you will find the new features and devices released in May.   Teams announcements at Microsoft Build 2024 Chat and Collaboration Meetings Places Platform What's New in Microsoft Teams | May 2024 Chat and Collaboration Meetings Webinars and Town Halls Teams Phone Teams Rooms and Devices Mobile Platform Frontline Worker Solutions     Teams announcements at Microsoft Build 2024 Chat and Collaboration Slash commands Slash commands provide a quick, user-friendly, and consistent interface to take contextual actions, compose, navigate and complete frequent tasks. Instead of taking multiple actions to perform a task, such as open a chat in a new window, add a code block, navigate to settings or changing your presence, you can simply type slash in the compose box, select a command, and complete your task quickly. This feature will start rolling out in June. Slash commands (1).gif   Co-edit code blocks Save time by using Loop components to share and co-edit code in Teams, instead of sending many code blocks. Just insert your code into a Loop component or turn a native code block into one. Then anyone who can access the Loop component can review and co-edit it, making communication clearer and faster. This will start rolling out in June. Convert-to-Loop-code-block-updated-2160.gif   Custom emojis and reactions Bring more creativity and expression into your conversations with custom emojis and reactions. Upload your own custom emojis or reactions to personalize the conversation and reflect the team’s culture. Use custom emojis to efficiently share status or share a lighthearted emoji. Once uploaded, custom emojis can only be used within the user's tenant, but once they are sent, they are visible to all members of the chat. IT admins can decide who has permission to create custom emojis, delete custom emojis, or turn off the capability altogether. Custom emojis will be coming to public preview in June.   Unfurling permalinks to see code previews You can now share code with your team in chat more easily by pasting a permalink that shows a rich preview from Azure Dev Ops. The receiver can view the code in Azure DevOps. This helps your team understand the context without leaving the chat. This is now generally available. Unfurling permalink.gif   Meet now in group chat If you need to discuss and brainstorm with your team, start a quick and informal huddle using meet now in a group chat. Meet now in group chat enables ad-hoc call real-time with your team – providing an alternative to a formal, scheduled meeting. Regardless of your whereabouts, you can start a call as spontaneously as dropping by your colleague’s desk. The chat is part of your ongoing group chat thread to ensure that the content stays in its context and you find the information when you need it. With meet now it is easier to see if colleagues are talking about an issue in real-time and giving an easy to way to join. Meet now for group chat will be generally available in June. Meet now in group chat1.gif   Generate images with Microsoft Designer in chat Create stunning images right from a Teams chat thanks to the new Microsoft Designer integration. Simply type ‘@Designer’ in the chat box, describe the image you envision, and everyone in the group chat can see the suggestions and collaborate on refining them using additional prompts. When working alone, you can also chat directly with Designer to create any image you can think of. With Designer in Teams, visual content creation becomes more collaborative and integrates in your flow of work. Designer in Teams chat will be available later this summer. generate images.gif     Meetings Intelligent recap for transcription-only meetings Intelligent recap will soon support meetings with just transcription enabled, allowing people to enjoy AI-generated summaries for more types of meetings. Sometimes, meeting participants may choose to transcribe a meeting without recording it. In these cases, Teams Premium and Copilot for Microsoft 365 licensed users will be able to access AI-generated notes, AI-generated tasks, and name mentions after the meeting to catch up. However, features of intelligent recap that rely on the recorded video such as timeline markers for join/leave, timeline markers for screen sharing, speaker timeline markers, topics, and chapters will not be available due to their reliance on the meeting recording. This will start rolling out in June. intelligent recap.png   Intelligent recap support for scheduled channel meetings With Intelligent recap for scheduled channel meetings, Teams Premium and Copilot for Microsoft 365 licensed users can easily browse the meeting recording by speakers and topics, as well as access AI-generated meeting notes, AI-generated tasks, and name mentions after the channel meeting ends. This is now available. intelligent recap2.png   Manage who can record and transcribe meetings Help keep confidential meetings protected with expanded controls for managing who can initiate transcription. Meeting organizers with eligible licenses will see a control called “Who can record and transcribe” in the meeting options, offering three choices: (1) organizers and co-organizers, or (2) organizers, co-organizers, and presenters, or (3) No one. This way meeting organizers will be able to manage which roles can initiate recording and transcription for a meeting. This functionality will start rolling out in June and will be available to Teams Premium and Copilot for M365 licensed users. record and transcribe.png   Disable screen share to prevent leakage of information IT administrators can set the content sharing permissions for external meetings in Microsoft Teams. This helps to prevent accidental leaks of sensitive data in meetings hosted by other tenants. Content sharing includes screen sharing and whiteboard usage. Note that users who cannot start a whiteboard session can still view and interact with a whiteboard started by someone else in the meeting. This is available with a Teams Premium license. Disable screen share to prevent leakage of information.png     Places Microsoft Places public preview Microsoft Places, the app that reimagines flexible work to drive effectiveness and engagement of the workplace, is now available in public preview. Places can be used across the surfaces that are used to regularly collaborate on and coordinate work, such as Outlook and Microsoft Teams, to make coordinating in-office time and connecting with coworkers easier. Read more about the Places public preview and upcoming features. And learn how Microsoft Places is reimagining flexible work. To try Microsoft Places and experience the features highlighted below, sign up for the Microsoft Places public preview by clicking "Get Started".   Location plan Microsoft Places’ location plan allows you to coordinate with coworkers about where and when you are working in-person, providing the ability to set and share location schedules with peers. These plans can be updated at any time in Outlook or in Places to keep teammates informed about how best to meet in-person. places1.png   Peek cards To facilitate in-person meetings with coworkers, peek cards are quick reference guides that provide more information about the people you work with and the spaces you work in. These peek cards show your own closest work collaborators who plan to be in the same office and gives easy access to book spaces that suit both your needs as well as those you are meeting with. A link on the peek card allows you to see all your coworkers’ schedules in the Places app. peek cards.png   Expanded presence Knowing which coworkers are nearby is much easier with the expanded presence feature in Places. This feature is available and visible across different Microsoft 365 apps, and gives heightened awareness of who is nearby. By keeping their presence updated, employees can make it easier to swing by desks or work neighborhoods for impromptu in-person chats, or even schedule lunch together. In Teams group chats, coworkers can see participant locations or type “@nearby” to notify those around them about an activity or a meeting room change. Expanded presence.png   Platform Enhancements to custom calling experiences connected to Microsoft Teams Many companies, such as healthcare providers and consultants, use Teams as part of their own custom branded app or website to connect with customers using video calls and chat. A number of new features already widely used in Teams itself are now available to embed in custom apps and website experiences built with Azure Communication Services: PowerPoint Live: The presenter and audience can both have an inclusive and engaging experience, utilizing the best parts of presenting in PowerPoint with the connection and collaboration of a Microsoft Teams meeting. powerpoint2.png   Live Reactions: During meetings, select “react” emojis in the meeting controls to share reactions to what’s being shared. Live Reactions.png   File sharing during a meeting: Teams users can share SharePoint files in chat with users joining from a custom app or web experience. File sharing during meeting.png   Real time transcription using Azure AI Speech: Receive text in real time from an ongoing call to ensure accurate record keeping. This is in preview. Closed captions: Promote accessibility by displaying text of the audio in video calls. Already available for app-to-Teams calls, this release adds support for closed captions in all app-to-app calls. closed captions.png   Picture-in-picture for iOS and Android: Enable customers to take video calls while simultaneously browsing other tabs or completing tasks in other windows. The video calls can be detached from the original tab and floated anywhere on screen. Picture-in-picture for iOS and Android.jpg   Noise suppression during a video call: Reduce background noise and enhance the speaker’s voice to minimize call disruptions. Stream live audio using the Audio Streaming API. Extract raw audio in two formats: (1) Mixed audio: Audio file cannot be filtered by participant. (2) Unmixed audio: Isolate the audio of the different participants in the call and pick out the audio from a specific participant. Call Diagnostics Center: Analyze calling data from app-to-Teams calls to identify causes of poor call quality and reliability, including poor internet connectivity, software compatibility issues and technical difficulties with devices. call center.png   Starting in June, participants in the Microsoft Copilot for Azure preview can use Copilot within Call Diagnostics to explain issues their end users are facing and get faster insights on how to resolve those issues. You can ask Copilot questions about your calling solution like “What are the types of User Facing Diagnostics in the Azure Communication Services SDK and how can I fix them?” or “How do I run network diagnostics in Azure Communication Services VoIP calls?” Learn more about custom calling experiences connected to Microsoft Teams.     What’s new in Microsoft Teams in May 2024 In addition to the announcements made at the Microsoft Build conference, there are many new Teams features and improvements that will be available by the end of May. I really like how the meeting recap and meeting artifacts are now automatically shared in chat after a meeting, so that I can easily access meeting insights. I encourage you to try out annotating on a shared screen and saving the screen with annotations to a Whiteboard. Lastly, I am delighted to share that intelligent meeting recap is now available in 16 additional languages, bringing the benefits of AI-generated notes and tasks to many more Teams users across the globe.     Chat and Collaboration Share contact information of people in chat You can now share the contact details of a person who is not part of a chat conversation. This will help you bring in new collaborators and make sure that everyone has the contact information they need. share contact info.png Select domain for Teams email service Administrators now have the option to use a different domain for sending Teams notification emails to their users. Admins can also choose to configure the no-reply prefix, if they would like to monitor responses from users. Learn more about selecting the domain for email from Microsoft 365 products. select domain.png   Default service for uploading files using drag-and-drop Administrators can choose which file service will be used by default when users upload files from their local devices by dragging and dropping them in a chat or channel. OneDrive and SharePoint are the existing defaults, but admins can now change it to a 3rd party file management service.   Improved copy link experience  When copying file links in Teams conversations, whether in chats or channels, and within the chat files tab, you will now have the same convenient one-click copy link experience as you do in OneDrive and SharePoint. You can also customize the link settings and permissions. copy link.png     Meetings Copilot in Teams meetings on mobile after the meeting In addition to accessing Copilot in Teams during a meeting on your mobile device, you can now access Copilot in Teams and ask questions about meetings after they end. Just tap a Teams calendar item to access Copilot in the meeting “Details” or “Recap” view. This is available for eligible meetings with transcription turned on and requires a Copilot for Microsoft 365 license. copilot in meetings.png   New languages supported in intelligent meeting recap AI-generated notes and AI-generated tasks in intelligent meeting recap are now available in 15 additional languages: Arabic, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Korean, Norwegian (Bokmal), Polish, Portuguese (Portugal), Russian, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish. This will enable more people to have meetings in their chosen language and review the AI-generated notes and tasks later, so they can concentrate on the meeting itself rather than on taking notes. Intelligent meeting recap is available with a Teams Premium license or Copilot for Microsoft 365 license.   Meeting recap and artifacts automatically shared in chat after meeting You will now receive a summary of everything that happened in a meeting inside the meeting chat right after the meeting ends. This includes a link to the recap page, transcript, recording, notes, shared files, Whiteboard, and meeting details. If you are licensed for intelligent meeting recap, you will also see highlights such as the number of speakers, number of personal name mentions, and number of AI-generated tasks. Intelligent meeting recap is available with a Teams Premium license or Copilot for Microsoft 365 license. Meeting recap and artifacts automatically shared in chat after meeting.png   New avatar wardrobe options Discover new avatar wardrobe options, more professional attire, and improved texture, fit, and color of clothes in the Avatar Builder. avatar wardrobe.png   Save meeting content with collaborative annotations as a Whiteboard Collaborative annotations let meeting presenters add drawings, notes, reactions, text highlights, and more on the screen being shared during a meeting. Now, screen sharers can save the annotated content to Whiteboard, so all meeting participants can access it later and continue working on it. To save your content with annotations to Whiteboard, you need the Teams desktop app on Windows or MacOS. When you share your screen in a Teams meeting, click “Annotate” in the presenter toolbar, and after making annotations, click “Capture a snapshot” in the annotations toolbar. This will add a snapshot in a Whiteboard file with all the annotations from the meeting. Save meeting content with collaborative annotations as a Whiteboard.png   Presenters can interact with background content when collaborative annotation enabled Now, when meeting participants are annotating while screen-sharing, they can interact with the underlying shared content, like advance to the next slide or scroll down a document, and resume where they left off without restarting the annotations session. To enable this, click “Start interacting with background” in the annotations toolbar. This is now available in the Teams desktop app and Teams web app. Presenters can interact with background content when collaborative annotation enabled.png   Trim meeting recording in Microsoft Stream Users with video edit permissions can now trim meeting recording videos in Microsoft Stream on SharePoint. Trimming lets you hide any part of a video from your viewers, without changing the original file. Open the recorded video of a meeting in the Stream web app and click the edit button. When you're done trimming you can toggle to the preview mode to see the trimmed video before saving it. The meeting transcript and chapters will be updated automatically to match the trimmed video. Users with edit permissions can still see the full original content and edit or delete the trimmed parts. Learn more about how to trim videos in Stream.     Webinars and Town Halls HubSpot CRM integration with Teams Webinars We are excited to announce our new Teams Webinar integration with HubSpot, a leader in B2B marketing automation, which will enhance lead scoring and prioritization, aiding teams to target high-potential leads. The Microsoft Teams connector streamlines data import to HubSpot, enriching lead qualification with webinar engagement insights, fostering efficient marketing and sales alignment, and driving revenue growth. This integration can be activated by visiting the administrator's "Global Settings" tab to manage account-wide webinar settings. Individual users can control their sync settings under "My Settings," choosing which webinars to sync, and opting for automatic syncing of new webinars. Once set up, synced webinars create marketing events in HubSpot, displaying detailed event information and auto-logging activity on contact pages, with new contacts created for unrecorded registrants.     Teams Phone Connect custom applications with Teams for client-based customer service calling experiences Azure Communication Services Call Automation now offers interoperability with Microsoft Teams. Third party contact center partners can leverage VoIP to streamline voice connectivity to Teams and enable their customer service agents on Teams. This interop enables businesses to deliver expedient customer service by bringing Microsoft Teams users into their Business-to-Consumer (B2C) calling workflows. Having Teams as the single-pane-of-glass solution for both internal and B2C communication increases agent productivity and empowers them to deliver first-class service to customers. This interoperability is offered over VoIP to reduce telephony spend, making it easier for CCaaS providers to programmatically add Teams users to B2C customer service workflows. Voice calling (VoIP) usage for calling extensibility will be billed through Azure Communication Services. Agents and subject matter experts need a Teams Phone license. Learn more about delivering expedient customer service by adding Microsoft Teams users in Call Automation workflows. phones212.png   New contact center solution certifications The Teams contact center and compliance recording certification programs ensure that contact center and compliance recording solutions work smoothly and dependably with Teams by requiring them to pass third-party testing.

Prompt Like a Pro: Effectively summarize your channel conversations with Microsoft Copilot in Teams (Thu, 16 May 2024)
Keeping up with your information can be a challenge in today’s fast-paced environment. Microsoft Teams channels help you have all your information related to a certain topic in one place. Yet sometimes the conversation progresses fast, and you need help catching up. This is especially true when you're part of multiple teams and projects. With important documents being shared, ongoing conversations, and comments being added to threads, it can feel overwhelming! However, with a few simple tips and tricks, you can stay on top of your channels and avoid missing important updates. To stay in the know across all your different channels - and the teams associated with those channels - look no further than Microsoft Copilot in Teams!   Get channel highlights with Copilot in Teams Say it’s been a busy day. On top of all the emails you need to answer and chat threads to respond to, there are also all the unresolved projects and updates in your Teams channels. Copilot in Teams can help you get up to speed, fast! Navigate over to your “Chat” tab in Teams and click on the Copilot icon at the top of your chats. This opens Copilot for Microsoft 365 in Teams, which will be able to use data grounded in the Microsoft Graph to answer your questions. To start, use the prompt “What’s new in [channel] of [team]?” For example, I want to find out what I missed from the Go to Market channel in my Mark 8 Project team, so I would ask Copilot: “What’s new in the Go to Market channel of the Mark 8 Project team?” copilot1.gif   Copilot quickly scans through that specific channel and tells me when the latest update was, who was involved in that change, if there were any new documents shared, and even links to that update, making it easy to navigate directly to that thread. When prompting, make sure you give Copilot the correct spelling of the team name in your prompt, otherwise it may not search for the right channel.   Dive deeper with follow-up prompts To go one step further, Copilot provides you with auto-generated prompts that you can use to follow up on the response it provided you from your first prompt. Going back to my example, Copilot told me that one of the members of my channel, Hadar Caspit, shared a Go-to-market plan document with the team. Instead of trying to navigate through to the different channels, teams, and posts, Copilot already suggested a follow-up prompt for me, “What are the key points in the Go-to-market plan?” copilot2.gif   By clicking that prompt, Copilot pulls up a simple yet effective overview of the document, including the target audience, product and price strategies, etc. These follow-up prompts will change depending on the context of your team and what updates have happened to that channel since the last time you checked in. What will remain the same, however, is that they are all offered by Copilot as easy ways to go more in-depth about those updates without having to leave your Copilot conversation to find that information yourself.   Leverage relevant documents with the power of Microsoft Graph Copilot uses Microsoft Graph** to pull any relevant documents into its output. This is possible thanks to Microsoft Copilot’s Graph-grounded chat, which enables you to bring your work content and context to Microsoft Copilot's chat capabilities.
