The 5 founding principles of InPlaces

Places should have beautiful profiles. Like we do.

We see places as characters and we thought it would be terrible injustice to put these characters as just dots on a map or simply, aggregations. On the flip side, we wanted our users to not only find places but feel them. 

Tapping into local expertise

No one knows a locality better than the locals themselves and people who frequent it. That’s the theory behind most of our features. We are truly excited by the possible outcomes of crunching such data when it comes to local discovery. 

Beautiful & intelligent curation app

We truly value the purity of a place’s profile and that is exactly why we have placed strong emphasis on our curation layer. Beneath the simple UI one sees, there is a complex scoring mechanism that knows the kind of users the app should listen to!

In-store experience

The best things available at a place, moments from the past posted by you and your friends, recommendations from your friends and local experts, deals, coupons & recommendations from merchants

If you could consume all this in a very simple and instant way, that would make for an ideal in-store experience. And that’s what we want to offer.

As a Merchant platform

Merchants and small business owners can use the very same app & it’s features just like any other user to brand and market themselves. There is no separate merchant platform, no complex dashboards! Good riddance!

Skype for Business – Migrate Lync 2013 Persistent Chat to SfB

So I’ve been looking for information on migration for Persistent Chat from Lync Server 2013 to Skype for Business Server 2015 so coming up short.

If your inplace upgrading your existing Lync 2013 Persistent Chat servers or collocated Persistent Chat role on a Standard Edition Lync 2013 Front End Server to SfB then the in place upgrade process will do all the work for you which is great :) one less thing to remember and all that :)

However if your doing a side by side migration from Lync Server 2013 to Skype for Business and you already use persistent chat, then you need to migrate the existing content.

I’ve checked the usual places for any details or notes and it seems limited for Lync 2013 P Chat migration to SfB so i thought id share what i did.

In summary

You have to export the Lync 2013 Persistent Chat configuration including the categories and rooms, import the configuration into the new Skype for Business Persistent chat servers and remove the Lync 2013 old configuration after. I did find users have to refollow rooms as well.

Ok so lets go!

Server Summary for Scenario

Apologies with the very close matching FQDNs its the cost of in place upgrading I’m afraid. Ive added p chat to my 2013 server in my lab for this so we will move it to sfb.

  • Lync 2013 P Chat Server “lyncse02.ucmart.co.uk” (SE Front End with P Chat Role)
  • Skype P Chat Server “Lyncse01.ucmart.co.uk” (SE Front End with P Chat role)

Grab this info first to save time

  • Lync 2013 P Chat server / pool name
  • SfB P Chat Server / pool name
  • Lync 2013 P Chat database server FQDN and instance name
  • SfB P Chat database server FQDN and instance name

Steps

1. Deploy your new and shinny Skype for Business Persistent Chat servers or collocated role on a SE Front End Server.

(Remember to apply the latest CU and if adding the role to an FE remember to run the CU installer after.)

2. Get a test client who’s following some rooms and you can see existing content in the rooms hosted on 2013.

3. Check Current Config and setup

Open SfB control panel and check out the categories and rooms you have already. I have two categories and five rooms.

You can also do this in SfB Management Shell and get a lot more details and you can export to text file just in case for future references.

get-cspersistentchatcategory

(get-cspersistentchatcategory).count

get-cspersistentchatroom

External image

(get-cspersistentchatroom).count

You can also export these to a text file for reference just in case. why not it wont hurt :)

get-cspersistentchatcategorys | out-file c:temppchatcats.txt

get-cspersistentchatrooms |out-file c:temppchatrooms.txt

3. Export Lync 2013 Persistent Chat Configuration

Here you will need the database server and instance name where the p chat database is stored.

Below is a collocated p chat database on a 2013 Standard Edition server.

Export-CsPersistentChatData -DBInstance “lyncse02.ucmart.co.ukrtc” -FileName “c:tempLync2013PChatBckup.zip”

Now we have an export and backup of our current Lync 2013 P Chat data and config. Guess what we need to do next. Yep import that bad boy into SfB p chat database.

4. Import P Chat export to Skype for Business

Here you will need the new Skype for Business Persistent chat database location. Below is SfB Standard Edition Front End Server. Please note my SfB SE Front End FQDN is called lyncse01. Please be careful not to get this confused.

Import-CsPersistentChatData -DBInstance “lyncse01.ucmart.co.ukrtc” -FileName “c:tempLync2013PChatBckup.zip”

5. Check the import

We will use the tools we used before to check the config. We will now see that we have a duplicate set of categories and rooms. One set on Lync 2013 and one set on Skype for Business.

6. Remove Legacy Categories and Chat Rooms

First use the get command and BE CAREFUL to make sure you chose the correct server. THIS must be the Lync 2013 P Chat Server.

Get-CsPersistentChatRoom -PersistentChatPoolFqdn “lyncse02.ucmart.co.uk”

External image

(Get-CsPersistentChatRoom -PersistentChatPoolFqdn “lyncse02.ucmart.co.uk”).count

The count should return only the 2013 rooms so in my case 5.

Lets remove, this command will remove all in one go any rooms on the 2013 server, you do have to press y to accept deleting an enabled room.

Get-CsPersistentChatRoom -PersistentChatPoolFqdn “lyncse02.ucmart.co.uk” |Remove-CsPersistentChatRoom

External image

Let check control panel, yep the rooms from 2013 have been deleted. You must delete the rooms first before the categories.

External image

Lets do the same process, check the categories and then delete.

Get-CsPersistentChatCategory -PersistentChatPoolFqdn “lyncse02.ucmart.co.uk”

External image

Get-CsPersistentChatCategory -PersistentChatPoolFqdn “lyncse02.ucmart.co.uk”| remove-cspersistentchatcategory

External image

back to control panel and they are gone :)

7. Lets check the persistent chat client

After deleting the previously followed 2013 rooms these were removed but if i search i can see the rooms and re add them so not the end of the world.

After i re- followed the rooms

I opened a room and there’s the content !

All done and now you can decommission that Lync 2013 P Chat servers.
