I am deploying a trial of Lync 2010 for 25 users for 30 days. And I have me and one other person testing it and I had to manually add this person. And I am deploying it so that they can like it and I can get the approval to deploy it throughout the organization.
So if I integrate it with AD then people will just be able to go into their contacts or a message or whatever and say send this person a message and see the status but if I continue to go with the public IM version of firstname.lastname@example.org I will have to manually add all 25 contact for each of the 25 test users?
And if that is so I would rather integrate it into active directory but then do I need a server to do that even if its office 365? Just trying to find out the best way to deploy this for the trial.
