Lync Server 2010 is a Microsoft product based off of the OCS platform that allows IM, Video Conference, Application and File Sharing, Phone integration and a host of other functions.

IM Problem could be a whole host of issues, without knowing the full question I cannot tell.

This was the whole question:

Lync Server 2010 Conferene IM Problem Question: When I try to send an IM to a group of contacts, I get a message saying that "The conferencing server did not respond" and then the following error: When contacting your support team, reference error ID 3098 (source ID 243). I have Lync server installed on a 2008 R2 virtual server (commsrv.xxx.org) and this server is only used for lync. I have a multi-domain cert. for commsrv, meet, dialin, sip. The certificate is in place and that shouldn't be the problem. The services are all started. I need some clues as to why we cannot IM multiple contacts.

Could you please tell me what this means:
"I have Lync server installed on a 2008 R2 virtual server (commsrv.xxx.org) and this server is only used for lync".

The only part i understand is:
On a virtual server is microsoft windows server 2008 installed
But I don't understand the Lync part.

Sure.

So think of Lync as an application which gets installed on a server architecture (in this case a virtual instance of Windows Server2008 R2) and is used for IM, Video Conference, Application Sharing etc..

Lync is a Microsfot application much the same way Exchange or SharePoint is.  They all do differnet things but they are all just applications.
