With the introduction of the new Lync Phone Edition client in Lync Server 2010 there is now a way to support basic telephony functionality without having to login as a regular user to a standalone handset. In Office Communications Server this experience was limited to using an executive-class CX700 (Tanjay) with a dedicated user account signed into the phone. Neither these devices nor the extended communication modalities provided by a full OCS user account were really the best solution for a phone in an unsecured, common area.
i am using the CX600 phones in a branch senario and need to know if there is a way to make the phone auto sign in and out when the lync client is logged on or offIm reading your article as i figured i could set all the phones up as common area phones with the same common area account. then when a users docs there laptop or logs into lync they would sign in over the top of the common area account then when they log out the user would be auto signed out and the phone would revert to the common area account.Does this sound feasable or is there a way to make a CX600 or HP4120 to auto sign in and out with the lync client. this currently doesnt happen.
Hi Jeff, I know this question is old but can you post the TechNet discussion link as this one does not seem to work Trying to figure out how to have our CX600 auto-login after an unexpected reboot of the phone.
Hi Jeff,Thanks for the posts they are helpful. Question about the hotdesking and hotdesktingtimeout. We are putting VVX300's in all of our common spaces. The UC Software Version is 18.104.22.16868. I have configured the client policy to enable hotdesking and set the hotdeskingtimeout to 1 min (for testing purposes). What i have found is while i can log into the phone with the contact when i log the contact out and log in as myself (i.e. i want to test the hotdeskingtimeout), I find that the phone never logs me out. While looking at the phone it shows that I am away (thus i don't have a lync client running anywhere).
Lets say you have a dummy lync account. You log into this dummy lync account then add all your favorites. Log out of that lync dummy lync account > then issue the export-csuserdata command against the dummy lync account. This will dump the contact list to a ZIP file. Now that you have this issue an import-csuserdata against the CAP account. Just unsure if the cmdlets will accept common area accounts.
Is there a way to have the telephone number of the common area phone displayed in the lync addressbook I tried adding the phone number to the telephone number, mobile, and other phone attributes in AD but nothing works.
Microsoft released Office Communicator 2007 to production on July 28, 2007, and launched it on October 27, 2007. It was followed by Office Communicator 2007 R2, released on March 19, 2009. Microsoft released the successor to Office Communicator, Lync 2010, on January 25, 2011. In November 2010, the platform was renamed Lync.
In May 2013, Microsoft announced that it would allow Lync users to communicate with Skype, a consumer IM platform it had acquired in 2011. This initially included support for text and voice communications. On November 11, 2014, Microsoft announced that Lync would be renamed Skype for Business in 2015, also adding support for video calls with Skype users.
When Microsoft bought Skype in 2011 for US$8.5 billion many puzzled analysts were scratching their heads because the company already had Windows Live Messenger and its enterprise version Lync, which together had a much larger user base than Skype. However, one key thing the Microsoft messaging products did not have was traditional telephony integration. Enter Skype and, this week, Skype for Business Online.
The first step with using Lync for group videoconferencing is to set up an account with Office 365, which is a bit of administrative overhead all by itself. Users and conference leaders alike both need to have accounts, which follow the format email@example.com. The Lync client's login interface has a misleading \"e-mail address\" as well as \"user ID\" entry field; both needed to be filled out with the same onmicrosoft.com address. 1e1e36bf2d
