Cool Office Communications Server Remote Connectivity Analyzer

microsoft-test-ocs-connectivity.jpgJames Stine has released a cool utility called "Office Communications Server Remote Connectivity Analyzer". It's a great online tool for performing testing, troubleshooting, and diagnostics on OCS 2007 deployments. James said, "Following on the heels of success of the Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer (created by Shawn McGrath and Brad Hughes), Premal Gandhi, Matthew Fresoli and I have been busy designing and writing a complimentary tool: The Office Communications Server Remote Connectivity Analyzer."

The Office Communications Server Remote Connectivity Analyzer is a web site for IT Administrators to validate and diagnose end-to-end Office Communications Server scenarios. The site simulates multiple Office Communications Server client access scenarios from outside the customer's infrastructure and reports whether the test was successful. If the test fails, we inform the IT Admin exactly where in the process it failed as well as provide troubleshooting tips on resolving the issue.

In the current beta version the tool provides the following end-to-end tests:

• Office Communications Server Remote Connectivity
• Office Communications Server Remote Connectivity w/AutoDiscover

Coming Soon:

• Deeper level of diagnostic information - MSDiagnostics header
• More detailed troubleshooting information based on MSDiagnostic header
• Additional tests

The online OCS tool is available at https://www.TestOcsConnectivity.com
