Managing Skype For Business Online Hello everybody, and welcome to this Pluralsight course on PowerShell for Office 365. My name is Vlad Catrinescu, and I'll be your instructor for this course. You can find me on Twitter at @vladcatrinescu, and you can also read my blog at absolute-sharepoint. com. In this module, we'll talk about PowerShell for Skype for Business Online. In this module, we will talk about how to prepare our environment and how to connect to Skype for Business Online. We will then take a look at available PowerShell commands, and we will learn how to use them in both an online-only, as well as a hybrid scenario of Skype for Business. To be able to connect to Skype for Business Online, you need to be on at least Windows 7 service pack 1 or Windows Server 2008R2 and have PowerShell 3. 0 installed. Lastly, you must be a Skype for Business Online admin. Software-wise, it's pretty easy. You need to have at least PowerShell 3. 0, and you need to install the Skype for Business Online connector module. Connecting to Skype for Business Online is very similar to connecting to Exchange Online. First, you have to open PowerShell and import the connector module. Then, we need to get a connection credential and establish a connection in a session. And, finally, we import the remote session in our current session. Let's take a look at the commands. The first thing we do after opening up PowerShell is to import the LyncOnlineConnector module using the Import-Module cmdlet. Afterwards, getting the credential is done with the Get-Credential command we already learned. We will then create a new remote Windows PowerShell session that makes a connection to Skype for Business Online using the New-CsOnlineSession cmdlet. Lastly, we need to import the session we just created using the Import-PSSession cmdlet. Now that we know how to connect to Skype for Business Online, let's open up the lab, prepare our computer, and create the connection.
