I would really like someone to help me make sense of all the articles and posts about meeting expiration times and give me a definitive answer. And please don’t tell me about the ContentExpirationGracePeriod setting because it isn’t for setting the meeting expiration time itself—it’s for the content. Per the MS article, Managing Meeting Life Cycles, that setting is described as, “Grace period in addition to the expire time, after which the Web Conferencing Server should clean up content for a conference.” Note the terms “in addition to” and “content for a conference.” That means that it cleans up the content of the meeting after a certain grace period. It doesn’t mean that it sets a grace period for the meeting expiration time itself (and even if it did, that still doesn’t tell me how to set the actual meeting expiration time). (more…)

Office Communicator 2007 –> Save Password on Non-Domain-Member Computer For Automatic Sign In

If your computer is not a member of an AD domain that's trusted by your Office Communications Server 2007 Pool, your Office Communicator 2007 client will not display the option to save the password. You can enable a registry setting to have the OCS client display the checkbox that allows you to save your OCS password. You might wonder why you would ever need to do this, but you never know. I had a need for it since I work at a client and my computer is not a member of their domain. (more…)
