With Teams the Admin center does not currently give any information on when a Team was created. The PowerShell script below will list all the Teams and the date when they were created.

# List All Teams and creation date

Import-Module MSOnline
Import-Module MicrosoftTeams

[string]$username = "[email protected]"
$cred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential

# Connect to Exchange powershell
$session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Credential $cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $session

# Connect to Teams powershell

Write-Host "Getting Teams..."
$Teams = Get-Team

$teamdata = @()

Write-Host "Getting UnifiedGroup data..."
foreach($Team in $Teams)
	$TeamUG = Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity $Team.GroupId
	$teamdata += @(
		DisplayName = $Team.DisplayName
		CreationDate = $TeamUG.WhenCreated

# display results
$teamdata | sort displayname


Kace 11 script logs issue
Kace (agent) Monday, 01 February 2021 by paul

After upgrading to v11 of Kace SMA we have seen an issue with scriptiing logs.

In the Scripting Logs section of the Device Inventory when selecting "View Logs" it displays a window with no data.

This is a known issue with Kace v11. It will be fixed in v11.1 which is tentatively scheduled for a May 17th 2021 release.

The workaround provided by Quest support is to use "search scripting logs" in the Scripting section.

Azure AD Password Protection stopped working
Office 365 (Azure AD) Friday, 18 December 2020 by paul

Recently one of our Admins noticed that passwords were being set which should not have been allowed with our Azure AD Password Protection settings. Looking at the DCs showed no errors. A look on the Microsoft Docs site for On-premise password protection ( show the latest version is v1.2.125.0. The running version was v1.2.65.0.

v1.2.65.0 includes timed-limited functionality so just stops working on September 1st 2019 with no warning or errors (unless you know what event to look for in the event log). Upgraded Proxy Agent and DC Agents and all working again.

The latest version should automatically update but that functionality was only introduced in version v1.2.116.0.
