The process of installing Office 365 on an RDS server is much more complex than just installing from an image or disc. I have done this enough now to have a pretty good process for doing this quickly without any issues. I wanted to share this in an attempt to shortcut the process for all those new Office 365 admins that are not familiar with deploying the suite to an RDS server. I’m sure this process will change as time goes on, (Shocker right?) so feel free to comment when this does not work for you.
This is a pretty granular blog post. Most of you will probably never use this but I had an incident happen recently where an email had to be found in an Exchange 2013 mailbox that had several hundred folders with rules spraying email everywhere. The search tools in Outlook would not work properly because the mailbox was too big. We had no time to fix the search tools in Outlook. We needed to find where the email was very quickly. Not where it was delivered, where it is right now. This will help you do the same.
