Skype for Business Certificate report gets an update, now supporting PSTN Gateway certificate retrieval

One of the tasks on my to-do list was to adding more features into the Lync/SfB Certificate report script, especially the feature of pulling the PSTN Gateways Certificates information which is always something we tend to forget that exists within Skype for Business / Lync environments.

Well, now, with the help of the amazing and so talented Amanda Debler, I can finally cross that task from my list Smile.

Amanda took our script and was able to pull her magic and add the missing piece of code that is required to pull that information.

The script can be downloaded from here: TechNet Gallery

The latest version is 0.48 which includes the PSTN Gateway feature as well as a few minor updates for testing OWAS servers and fixing regional formatting.

Hope you enjoy it, and please let us know if you have any feedback or ideas for improvement…
