PowerShell script to create a junction point to make it easier to access OneDrive from VDI, Citrix and Remote Desktop Services

A workaround when you are using any kind of Remote Desktop Services, VDI and other terminal services function (or applications) that do not support the OneDrive for business client is accessing the files from the PC you are physical logged on. But browsing to the file path where the files/file links are physical locate might be a bit too much to ask your users for.

Upcoming seminars, conferences and public appearance of the Bluescreen Brothers

Looking like it will be a busy period forward regarding public speaking. So just as you can keep track here is a list of dates of verified “shows”

Migrating users homefolders or fileshares to OneDrive/Sharepoint with PowerShell

Moving files from on premise fileservers are a task more and more organizations are working with, both home folders to OneDrive and fileshares to sites. Microsoft have created a nice graphical interface for this task "Microsoft SharePoint Migration Tool", you can check it out in my blog post
"Migration users homefolders to OneDrive with Microsoft SharePoint Migration Tool"

But there are some limitations, and in many cases, it might be simpler to just script the process. Microsoft has also created a guide for that too.
The guide are called "Upload on-premises content to SharePoint Online using PowerShell cmdlets"

Migrating users homefolders to OneDrive with Microsoft SharePoint Migration Tool

Migration to OneDrive seems to be a hot topic these days, I have done several sessions on different conferences the last 6-8 months. And every time the room have been overfilled with curious people, my Ignite session had about 3 times the audience as the room was setup for and during Techdays in Sweden there where people standing all over the room and in the door opening for an hour. It would be nice for my ego to just write that on my score card as being awesome, but I think I must be honest enough to share the glory with hitting the right topic at the right time.
So, I will try to create some articles and help guiding more people to start using OneDrive as the primary storage for the user’s own files.

Quick guide on how to run BgInfo background as Group Policy login

I know, it's simple. But I always forget some minor details when it have been a while since last time. So this blogpost is more a reminder to my self.

Goal = Get same background picture an all PC (and/or Server)

Doing it very simplified and easy in this guide, but you should normally use  folder structure for the files and a suitable Group Policy or more for the setting themself.

Workaround for "Unable to establish connectivity with AirServer"

I love using AirServer when I do demonstrations or a creating guides or slides on mobile devices, and in most cases it works nicely on my Android or Windows based devices. But it's on iOS devices it's most necessary to have a screen mirroring service. There is no emulators for iOS devices (that I know of) that I can use locally installed on my laptop, there is decent once for Android and Windows (Visual Studio Android emulator are one example) so I could run them emulated. But I much more prefer to run a "real" device.
