Lync 2010 Mobility Autodiscover

Recently I have been configuring a Lync 2010 environment as a PoC for IM and presence for my company. The PoC includes using IM and presence from the desktop and on mobile devices.  This requires an edge configuration and reverse proxy using TMG 2010. I found the following blog post which is great for setting up mobility Everything was configured included DNS names, certificates, software install etc.etc. Once I had everything configured I found that if I tried to connect using my iPad device it would provide the following error message. Can't connect to the server. It may be busy or temporarily unavailable. Please try again I looked at the logging and found that the Lyncdiscover URL wasn't being redirected to the configuration file required to login. Browsing to would simply produce a error 403 forbidden message. I went to "more details"

Moving folders in XenApp console

Recently one of my colleagues Chris ( tried to move a folder full of  XenApp 6.0 applications to a different location in the DSC (delivery services console) tree.  This seems like it should be pretty easy but actually it is not supported in the console. When clicking and dragging a folder the cursor icon changes to inform you this is not possible.   Now moving the applications themselves works, but the not the folder containing them, sure you can move the applications one by one, but that will take a lot of time. I had a quick look and found a XenApp powershell cmdlet for this. Open powershell on a server where the XenApp SDK is installed (download from here ) Add-pssnapin Citrix* (this will load the cmdlets) Move-XAfolder sourcepath destinationpath so if we wanted to move a folder called testing underneath a folder called testing you may use this line Move-XAfolder testing application
