  • offline and absence presence duration is reset
    1 Posts | Last post August 03, 2018
    • Hello,
      we installed the latest SEFAUtil server community edition and use it with a Skype for Business 2015 system and we noticed a very critical bug in the SEFAUtil server software.
      We have a user which is absent for 20 hours. As soon as we run, for example, the command Get-CsUserForwarding with the SIP address of this user, the user stays absent but the duration gets reset so 5 minutes are shown. The same happens with the status offline. (the other states have no duration)
      As we used the SEFAUtil server to set default values with a script for the forwarding after time setting depending on the current settings at a user, which was run every 2 hours, the status duration was reset at all the users.
      The same does not happen with the SEFAUtil tool which comes with the ResKit.
      Best regards
      Philipp
  • Presence is blinking from afk to available (yellow/green)
    1 Posts | Last post May 24, 2018
    • Hi, I've installed the latest version, but I still have this weird issue.
      When running command like get-csuserforwarding the presence of the user is changing rapidly from the current status (for example yellow) to green. The result is that the user presence is continously changing yellow/green.
      Is there any solution?
      
      thanks
  • Commands run, but then fail

    • We've been using sefautil server (in addition to Landis' Attendant Pro) for 2 years, scripted many essentials on it.
      
      When I type get-csuserforwarding <enter> it asks for a sip address, which I enter, and immediately throws :
      
      get-csuserforwarding : Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'SEFAUtilServer.UCUserEndpointContract' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or 
      because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.
      At line:1 char:1
      + get-csuserforwarding
      + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
          + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-CsUserForwarding], InvalidOperationException
          + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.InvalidOperationException,SEFAUtilServer.SEFAUtilServerPowershell.GetCsUserForwarding 
      
      
      Any advice much appreciated.

    • Hi, I have been setup latest version sefautilserver on win2012R2 server with SfB 2015 core component installed ( it is not an SfB FE server) , but when service started it crashes every time:

  • Additional Server or PC necessary?
    2 Posts | Last post November 01, 2017
    • We have an SFB Standard Edition Server with about 500 Users. Does it make sense to install the sefautil tool on an another Server or can we install it on the Frontend Server directly. Is there any risk or isuue to install the tool on the FE Server
      
      best regards - bueschu
    • Microsoft officially only supports trusted applications when not installed on an FE. (you can test if it works on an FE ;-)
  • service crashes on startup

    • Hi Matt,
      We are running SfB standard, and I've followed the instructions to setup the service and TrustedApplicationEndpoint etc.
      However, when I try to start the Sefautil Server service, it runs for a few seconds then crashes. The error in the application log is:
      .Net runtime:
      Application: SEFAUtilServerService.exe
      Framework Version: v4.0.30319
      Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

         at System.Threading.ThreadPoolWorkQueue.Dispatch()
      
      
      followed by a second error that references kernelbase.dll
      
      It looks like the same error that GeeGeeGeeGee mentioned but we are not running Lync 2013 (as an aside, I also tried the edit to the SEFAUtilServerService.exe.config file just for fun but it didn't help)
      
      Have I missed something or is there a particular .net runtime that is not supported perhaps?
      Thanks

    • Hi again, please delete/disregard my earlier question. Managed to sort it ourselves by blowing it all away and starting again using different port and removing a "_" character from the applicationID - unsure which fixed it but we are now up and running. Thanks for providing a great product!
      Cheers
    • Great to hear you got it sorted.

    • Hi, 
      Can you confirm when the Tool Sefautil Server is going to be fully released and will drop its BETA status.
      
      Also can you confirm if and what the licencing options are for the tool; is there any additional costs for running this tool on an Enterprise Pool.
      
      Regards
      James Robinson

      SEFAUtil Server Enterprise Edition is based on system users. Email sales@landiscomputer.com to get a quote. Thanks!
  • SimultaneousRingEnabled
    1 Posts | Last post October 06, 2017
    • SEFAutil server is a life saver, a glaring omission from MS. Thank you.
      
      
      If you do get-csuserforwarding on a user there are 2 parameters that deal with simultaneous ring.
      
      SimultaneousRingEnabled and TeamRingEnabled.
      
      The set-csuserforwarding does not have a SimultaneousRingEnabled option, and I have a user that has teamringenabled with an array of teammembers, yet inbound calls go straight to her voicemail - which sefautil reports as disabled.
      
      thx
