lync 2013

we use Lync 2013. I only have access to the client side. Today we are having connection issues, and I wanted to see the name of the Lync server my client tries to connect to. currently my client is stuck on
"contacting server and signing in"
If I go to tools, options, and personal, at the sign-in address, the advanced button just has automatic and manual configuration, but doesn't have any info about the current server I use. I fact, when I look around the menus in Lync I don't see anything about the Lync server name.
So is there a way to see the name of the Lync server that my client is trying to connect to? Keep in mind I ONLY have access to my Lync client.

Yes you can do this by doing the following...
- in the system tray you will see the Lync icon
- hold CTRL+ right click the Lync icon
- select Configuration Information

This will provide all of the details as to what server your lync client is connecting to.

AH!! thank you. this is similar to what you do for outlook. I didn't even think of that, however, Lync and outlook are tied together pretty tightly, it makes sense.
unfortunately, since our Lync server is down, the configuration information is greyed out, but I will check it once it is up.
Thanks again for the help.
