Desktop sharing is not enabled for OCS users by default.  You must first enable conferencing options in OCS by configuring the global Meeting policy in the OCS Management Console.  you can either modify the default policy to allow Desktop Sharing for all users, select a different default policy that already has that option enabled, or configured 'per user' policies to enable it for some but not all users.

See the later section of this blog article for instruction on how to configure the Meeting Policy in OCS:
