Lync/Skype Persistent Chat Message Health Test

This test verifies whether two users can exchange messages using the Persistent Chat service. The test logs two users on to Lync Server 2013 or to Skype for Business 2015, connects the users to a persistent chat room, exchanges a pair of messages, exits the chat room and logs off the two users.

This test will fail if you have not created a chat room or if the two test users have not been assigned a Persistent Chat policy that provides access to the Persistent Chat service.

The test is not available for Lync 2010.

All

The test uses the PowerShell Test-CsPersistentChatMessage –TargetPoolFqdn <target fqdn> cmdlet. Before the cmdlet can work, you must use Setup parameter to enable it.

For example, suppose you are running the Test-CsPersistentChatMessage cmdlet with the Setup parameter for a pool named LyncEnt-pool.smov2.qc.kan.ca.qsft. First you must create two test users in the pool. If you are running the test against more than one Lync 2013 registrar pool, you must create same test users for each pool.

For more information about creating Lync/Skype test users, see Creating a test user for the Lync/Skype Environment .

The following example shows the syntax for the cmdlet:

Office 365 Subscription Health Test

The Office 365 Subscription Health test provides an overview of your Office 365 licensing plans. Licensing plans define the Office 365 services that are available to users. The test shows license activity such as the number of licenses that are currently assigned to users (used) and how many licenses are due for renewal.

During the first 30 days after an Office 365 subscription ends, the Office 365 tenant account is in a period known as the expired state. During the expired period, users can still access data. After 30 days, the tenant account enters the disabled state for 90 days. During this period, users cannot access data. An Office 365 administrator can log in, backup data, or reactivate the subscription.

At the end of the disabled state, 120 days after the subscription has ended, the account enters the deprovisioning state. During the deprovisioning state, the data from user accounts and also email data and documents, is permanently deleted.
