Is there a way to disable saving of conversations via group policy?  I would like to disable these settings without having to each client.

Save IM Conversations in my email Conversation History folder
Save call logs in my email Conversation History folder

These are both checked by default

I found this link.  How do you set it globally, for all users?

Setting the policy in Lync sets if for all users that policy is assigned to. There are two parameters that can be set here, one for IM conversations and one for call logs.  The following command disables the automatic saving of both options:

Set-CsClientPolicy –Identity Test –EnableIMAutoArchiving $false –EnableCallLogAutoArchiving $false

Note that we are setting a specific policy which is already granted to our users.  You could easily set these parameters on the Global Client Policy to apply to everyone.

I don't want to have to apply the policy on users as they are added.  I ran this command, logged out of lync and back in, but it didn't disable them.

Is setting the -identity Global supposed to take care of this?

Set-CsClientPolicy –Identity Global –EnableIMAutoArchiving $false –EnableCallLogAutoArchiving $false

Answer was correct.  However, I already found the information that was provided by using a google search.  The key to resolving my particular issue was "-identity Global" to set a global policy, which I located myself.

While I appreciate that you found the answer yourself, I did give you the correct response in comment ID: 40590268 above where I said "Note that we are setting a specific policy which is already granted to our users.  You could easily set these parameters on the Global Client Policy to apply to everyone."

Thank you for awarding points
