Hi.

I've just installed a OCS 2007 R2 Enterprise server + edge server. It works fine internaly, but we want to add a MSN account, but we cant.

On the edge server, there is a red cross over 'Clearinghouse' and 'Federated contacts' (see picture below). Should I just ignore these two?

 OCS Edge
Does anyone have a clue about what i've done wrong?

Take a look at this page from Microsoft.  There are several things that must be done to ensure Federation works properly.

Also please note, once you've established your federation with Microsoft, that the syntax for adding some public IM accounts is special

I can see that I need to get a license from MS. So I will try that. Thanks for the answers! :)
