Check Office 365 services provisioning status

Hi, Today I’ll introduce how to check office 365 services are provisoned or provisioing. When we assign new licenses to office 365, services related to license are provisioned, sometimes it takes time half an hour or 1 day, so if you can see status of provision of services related to office 365 licenses, it may help to check the current status and what services you can use or you can’t use.

If  you use Get-MsolUser cmdlet, you can use then check services status.


PS C:\> (Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName[0].ServicesStatus

I hope you can reference this link to check services status which you recently assigned.


Office 365 Deployment for office 2016 Creation

Hi, Today I’ll introduce how to make office 2016 fille for office 365 deployment to share users as network drive. Recenltly as you know Microsoft introduced and changed to streaming install using click to run, but in this case it is beneficial to have enough bandwith I think, but on the network bandwith as company , it is not good solution. So as to distribute this tools for users, you have to make office 365 ProPlus , if you see documents, plesae move to here.


  1. You can download Office 2016 Deployment tool , if you execute it then it needs to select folder to extract setup.exe and configuration.xml
  2. You can make configuration configuration.xml referenced by configuration options for the office Deployment tool (Link), in my case updated below  , I just want to make  32bit office 365 proplus for office 2016 with as language of Korea to see the status of installing with progress bar, completion screens, error messages, or other user interface are disabled. And the user does not see a Microsoft Software License Terms dialog box anymore , to define how office is updated after it’s installed.        <Configuration>
    <Add SourcePath=”s:\O365_2016\setup\” OfficeClientEdition=”32” >
    <Product ID=”O365ProPlusRetail“>
    <Language ID=”ko-kr” />
    <Updates Enabled=”TRUE” UpdatePath=”s:\O365_2016\setup\” />
    <Display Level=”Full” AcceptEULA=”TRUE” />
  3. Open Command Prompt as administrator mode, then move to that folder to download installer file using setup.exe /download configuration.xml , if you execute it, it download full installation file to that folder.
  4. When completes to download full package to install, you make batach file to execute with /configure option, it describes setup.exe mode on the inline imagemode-for-odt, I made batch file using setup.exe /configure configuration.xml , then I distributed to our network folder to users.

If you do go on Office 2016 Deployment Guides for Admins (Link), then read full of it, and you can make your own office 365 proplus


Exam 70-346 : Managing Office 365 Identities and Requirements

Hi, I recently have taken exam about 70-346 (Managing Office 365 Identities and Requirements) then one MCP passed it , during taking exam I felt it’s so hard to answer questions, because office 365 product development is so fast to follow, so the exam which I took , it is also reflecting,

In case of me ,  “Plan and Implement Networking and Security in Office” is hard , suddenly I felt it’s good resource to take exam using “Office 365 for IT Pros”, I’m in progress to take another MCP as 70-347 (Enabling Office 365 Services), if I read all contents of this book, apprently it’s so helpful to take exam and understand office 365 more than now.

I’ve already purchased it, I’m reading Chapter4: Migrating to Office 365. I suggest you to read this book before taking exam for office 365 MCP to acquire MCSA for Office 365.
