  • Run Microsoft Skype Network Assessment Tool

Notes

A typical result set is shown below. When the instruction is run, the network assessment tool is downloaded and installed if not already present on the endpoint. It is then executed and the resulting TSV analysis file is then parsed.

Then a WMI ping query is made to identify the default gateway, and the results are merged to produce the final result set

 

The assessment tool may return no results when run on Windows 2012R2 server endpoints. This is a known issue with the tool and requires certain prerequisite roles and features to be installed. Because this instruction is designed to be minimally intrusive, it does not attempt to install these prerequisites.
