New Features in the Upcoming NAKIVO v7.2

Some information from my sponsor Nakivo.

Nakivo v7.2 is on his way. Register for v7.2 Beta now!  All Beta program participants who fulfill the Beta program requirements will receive a gift card.

A list of new features that we be added in the upcoming v7.2 :

  • Asustor NAS Support: Install NAKIVO Backup & Replication on an Asustor NAS to create a high-performance VM backup appliance that combines backup software, backup hardware, backup storage, and data deduplication in a single cost-effective device.
  • Log Truncation for Microsoft SQL: Automatically delete SQL transaction log files that could otherwise fill up all the free space and crash the entire server.
  • Instant Object Recovery to Source for Microsoft SQL: Recover Microsoft SQL Server objects, such as databases and tables, directly to the source SQL server, a different SQL server, or export objects to a custom location.
  • Calendar Dashboard: View all jobs and their predicted duration in a calendar dashboard (much like meetings in a calendar application), as well as create new and manage existing jobs.
  • Flexible Job Scheduling: Add multiple schedules to a single job. This way, it will be possible to schedule a single job to run at different times, as required by the business needs.

How to Add an extra email address to your O365 mailbox the right way

This blogpost describes how to add an extra email address on your O365 mailbox. Someone told me that when he tries to add an extra email address using the Office 365 admin partner he receives the following error :

o365_mailbox_address1

The error says that this action (adding an extra email address) should be performed on the object in your on-premises organization. This means that your Active Directory is connected to Azure (O365). So extra email address should be added on the specific user properties and not directly using the Exchange admin interface. Your changes are automatically replicated to Azure.

Go to your domain controller and open dsa.msc (Active Directory Users and Computers) and go to the user you wish to provide an extra email address. Important : don’t search for this specific user, this way you don’t see all the properties later on. Also make sure that you have the advanced view enabled in dsa.msc, otherwise you won’t see the Attribute editor tab.

o365_mailbox_address2

Open the properties of the specific user and select Attribute Editor and go to ProxyAddresses. Now you have the option to add an extra emailaddress, use the following Value : smtp:user@email.nl

Make sure that the @email.nl domain is registred correctly in O365.
