Finding Unlicensed Users in O365

Use these commands to check which users don’t have a license or need a different license. This is different from the search/filter in the Admin portal because it checks for the LicenseReconciliationNeeded attribute rather than IsLicensed. For example if you have a user with an Azure AD P2 license but they need an Exchange Online license the admin portal doesn’t give you a good way to filter this out.

#get connected

#show list of users that we need to license
get-msoluser -All | where {$_.LicenseReconciliationNeeded -eq $true}

#show the availible licenses that we have in the tenant, we are going to be looking for the E3 license "tenantnamehere:ENTERPRISEPACK"

#assign a usage location to the users we are going to license
get-msoluser -All | where {$_.LicenseReconciliationNeeded -eq $true} |Set-MsolUser -UsageLocation "US"

#assign the licenses to the users
get-msoluser -All | where {$_.LicenseReconciliationNeeded -eq $true} |Set-MsolUserLicense -AddLicenses "tenantnamehere:ENTERPRISEPACK"

Your users should be all set with their new licenses.

O365 – Tenant Name Checker

Over the years I have had the opportunity to work on quite a few Office 365 migrations and setups. This post covers somethings that I have found useful to ensuring a successful migration and making day 2 operations easier.

Picking the Name

So the tenant name ( does’t show up in too many places but it will be visible to some users. Mainly when you are looking at Team sites or SharePoint, but also in the aliases for hybrid setups. Bottom line you won’t have to type it in all the time but you probably don’t want to pick something like ( because someone will eventually ask and you can’t change it, ever. This tool will let you quickly check the available tenant names without having to go through the setup processes, you can send this over to the people that care and get them to pick the name for you. As you can see myfavpet is available and ready for your new migration 🙂
