Apple Music, iTunes and iBooks Now In China

Like the title says, Apple Music, iTunes, and iBooks are now available in China. This brings a whole new set of content to one of the worlds largest markets. This will also likely result in a lot of new content being added to the store.

If you are an iTunes affiliate, you’ll also be pretty stoked to know that you are now able to provide affiliate links for Apps and content in China as well! And if you’re a Chinese site and don’t yet have an iTunes Affiliate account, I’d look to sign up for one now.

Apple Configurator 2

Apple Configurator 2 is now out and there are some really cool new features available to people deploying Apple Configurator. Apple Configurator 2 now supports feature called Blueprints. A Blueprint is a set of configuration options (such as profiles, apps, etc) that are easily applied to devices by applying a given Blueprint. So basically a canned set of options that can be configured on a device. For example, you can have a Blueprint called Training that have training apps and settings for a training room network and then you can have another Blueprint for Kiosks, that have different apps for a kiosk, one app for a kiosk, an SSID for a kiosk wireless network, and throw that single app into Single User Mode. Pretty cool, since before you needed to have all this stuff in, select the appropriate options and then deploy them. Now, you can more quickly train student workers or deployment staff to get devices initially configured before deployment them in a school or company.

Likes and @Mentions coming to Outlook on the web

Over the last several years, social networks have changed the way we communicate. In our personal lives, we show our approval by “Liking” a friend’s status update on Facebook and we “@Mention” others in a Twitter post to call attention to it. In our workplace, these same social concepts became popular through enterprise social tools such as Yammer. Today we’re taking the next step and introducing Like and @Mention to workplace email in Outlook on the web.
Likes—bubbles up the best ideas
Email is a great way to share and collaborate on ideas, make plans and drive consensus with friends and coworkers. Email threads often grow in length with any number of suggestions, thoughts and counter-points added through the course of a discussion. The new Like feature in Outlook on the web provides an easy way to visibly endorse a specific email and call it out as something worth attention—perhaps a statement or idea you support.
To Like a message, simply click the ... | Read more »

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) capabilities protect your data where it is stored, when it is moved, and when it is shared. We first announced last year our plans to bring DLP to SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, and today we are pleased to announce DLP will begin rolling out to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online starting this week. By extending DLP to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online, we are expanding upon the same protection you already have in Exchange, Outlook and Outlook on the web, offering broader protection of your data wherever it lives. In addition, Office 2016 also supports DLP in Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Outlook, scanning documents for defined sensitive information.

Manage Users In OS X Server 5

There are four ways to create users in OS X Server 5, running on El Capitan or Yosemite. The first is using the Server app, the second is using Workgroup Manager (which barely works in OS X El Capitan and won’t install in El Capitan by default), the third is using the Users & Groups System Preference pane and the fourth is using the command line. In this article we will look at creating users in the Server app.
To do so, open the Server app and connect to your server. Then click on the Users entry in the ACCOUNTS list. The list of users is displayed, based on the directory domain(s) being browsed. A directory domain is a repository of account data, which can include local users, local network users and users in a shared directory service such as Open Directory and Active Directory.

The drop-down list allows you to see objects that are... | Read more »

Promote An OS X Server To A Replica

Previously, we looked at setting up an Open Directory Master in OS X Server. An Open Directory Replica keeps a copy of the Open Directory database available for users even when the Master goes offline. But it can also take a part of the load from the Open Directory Master and when using the new Locales feature, balance network traffic. To get started with an Open Directory Replica, first enable SSH, now disabled by default. If SSH is not enabled, you will not be able to create an Open Directory Replica. SSH is enabled on a server by opening the Server app, clicking on the name of the server and then clicking on the Settings tab. here, check the box for “Secure shell connections (SSH)”.

Next, use the changeip to check the host name. While the Server app is cool, it caches stuff and I’ve seen it let things go threat shouldn’t be let go. Therefore,... | Read more »

Announcing general availability of ExpressRoute fo...

Azure ExpressRoute for Office 365 enables organizations to establish a private, managed network connection to Office 365 as an alternative to connecting over the Internet. This direct connection offers customers more predictable network performance, an SLA for guaranteed availability and additional data privacy. As more organizations depend on Office 365 for document collaboration and communications, they will come to depend more and more on the network connectivity they have between their users and Office 365.
Today we’re pleased to announce that Azure ExpressRoute for Office 365 is now generally available from these network operators:

  • British Telecom
  • Equinix
  • Tata Communications
  • TeleCity Group
  • Verizon

You can read about how Microsoft is using ExpressRoute for Office 365 in the Microsoft IT whitepaper, “Optimizing network performance for Microsoft Office 365.”... | Read more »

Reset The Server App When It’s Unresponsive

The Server 5 app that installs on Yosemite and El Capitan is great. But when you go making changes to some things, you’re just going to cause problems, sometimes something as simple as just upgrading to the latest and greatest version of Server… I know, you’ve been told that host name changes and IP changes are all kinds of OK at this point; “look, Charles, there’s a button!” Well, go ahead, click it. Don’t mind me, you might just be alright. But then again, you might not if you’re running Open Directory, Profile Manager, or a few other services… When it works it’s a thing of beauty. But when it doesn’t, you might be restoring some stuff from backup. But just before you do that restore, let’s try one more thing. Let’s try and rebuild some certificates and configuration settings that shouldn’t impact actual service operation. Let’s try to reset the Server app and let a fresh install of the Server see if it can fix issues.
Now, I want to be clear, this is the last resort before... | Read more »

Configure Alerts In OS X Server 5

OS X Server 5, running on El Capitan or Yosemite, comes with a few new alerting options previously unavailable in versions of OS X. The alerts are sent to administrators via servermgrd and configured in the 5th version of the Server app. To configure alerts on the server, open the Server app and then click on Alerts in the Server app sidebar. Next, click on the Delivery tab.

At the Delivery screen, click on the Edit button for Email Addresses and enter every email address that should receive alerts sent from the server. Then click on the Edit button for Push Notifications. Here, check the box for each administrator of the server. The email address on file for the user then receives push notifications of events from the server.

Demote Open Directory Servers In OS X Server 5 Usi...

The command to create and tear down an Open Directory environment is slapconfig. When you disable Open Directory from the Server app you aren’t actually removing users. To do so, you’d use slapconfig along with the -destroyldapserver. When run, you get a little insight into what’s happening behind the scenes. This results in the following:
bash-3.2# slapconfig -destroyldapserver
The logs are as follows:
2015-09-08 04:17:58 +0000 slapconfig -destroyldapserver
2015-09-08 04:17:58 +0000 Deleting Cert Authority related data
