Reset Skype for Business settings

Posted by paris on Apr 12, 2017 in Random

Had a user who was getting blank screens when opening chat windows for Skype for Business and he couldn’t see text or type in messaging window so I thought I’d reset all the settings :


Close Lync.exe

Close Outlook.exe


Delete Folder : \%AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync

Delete in Registry following key:


3) Reopen Skype for Business

This will depend on your VMware ESXi Version for us it was 6  so this

Extract the .vib , and open VSphere VClient , navigate to the datastore explorer and use the gui to upload the file here

Enable SSH on the ESXi Server

Login to the server via putty as root

Run the below

esxcli software vib install -v /vmfs/volumes/%Datastorename%/%nameofvib%.vib


After installing you need to reboot the ESXi Server

Download the Download OpenManage Server Administrator Managed Node with the Same version as your VIB. For us it was 8.1 per below

click this link:  http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=20V28

Install this on a machine which has network access to the ESXi Management IP

After installing , open the OpenManage Server administrator

HP 4350 Printer Trays Resetting to Custom

Posted by paris on Nov 15, 2013 in Random

Sometimes Paper Size of Trays of a 4350 printer are getting randomly changed from A4 to Custom , which means when users next print to it , the printer asks to confirm the Tray for printing ( not automatic)


This is caused when users refill the printer tray with paper , after shutting the tray it asks them to confirm the paper type. If they click the Green Button ( blue arrow ) it will reset this to Custom. They need to be pressing the Back button to leave this to A4
