We are running an on prem Skype for Business server that was only used internally for IM and meetings. It was a 1 server setup and all worked great.
We now want to add an edge server so we can host skype meetings with external clients
The edge server is in our dmz and not a domain joined server
I edited my topology and added the edge server and published the topology. I then exported the config to a zip and imported it during the installation of the local configurations store. after running all was fine with the green checkmark and the complete.
I ran the setup for server components, requested and added a cert form a online auth. all went fine also

Everything installed fine except the server keeps giving topology errors saying it cant find info on the local domain
Has anyone seen this before?

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Hello!

Having some issue with Azure AD Sync.
I was playing around with a user that was currently synced.

I moved him to an OU that wasnt synced, in Office365 he got deleted.
I then restored the account in Office365, now hes "In-Cloud"
I moved him back to the correct OU and initialized a "Start-AdSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial"

However, he does not get synced, and as of right now he cannot setup a Outlook profile or login to Skype for Business.
Any ideas what i can do?

I want to be able to sync this user.
I want him to be able to login to Skype For Business and Outlook.
OWA works without any problems.

Error message when signing into Skype:
You can’t sign in to Skype for Business Online because the certificate can’t be acquired or validated

Hybrid Exchange 2010 with Exchange On-Line/Office 365.
AD Cloud Sync with on-Prem AD Server.
Skype For Business as Part Of Office 365 Premium

Years ago I tried installing a Lync Server, though never got all the way though. My Exchange User had a SIP email address entry in it.  This was Causing my Outlook to complain that My SIP and SMTP Addresses were not the same.   No One else in the Organization had a SIP email entry so I just removed mine. After that I could no longer login to Skype For Business. Did the Delete of the Appropriate files on my Machine, cleared the Stored Credentials, waited 24 hours and I still cannot login to Skype on ANY Machine (Mac/PC/PC) I can login to Exchange OWA, office Portal, Sharepoint, etc. Just not Skype. I seem to be the only affected user, other users are not affected.

Reading though many google searches I came across Update-CsUserDatabase which is supposed to Pull a copy of the User's Attributes from AD, though when I go to run that Command I get: "Update-CsUserDatabase' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet"
Though I can execute other get-Cs Commands with no issues, so I know I have a Good connection to the back end SfB.   (See Below) I can cycle though other Update-Cs Commands, just not the Update-CsUserDatabase one.

Is there a new way to refresh the backend User Database foe Skype For Business when its part of Office365?

Hi
i have users that can not sign into Skype for business. They can log onto their Outlook and other office products, but when they are on the Guest Network they can sign into Skype for Busniess. I was able to get a hold of MS/Skype for Business support.
Hi Joseph
 
Greetings!!
 
I have checked the logs and found that there is an issue with the ADFS wherein some connection issue with the ADFS server on corporate network is stopping user to sign in. Below are the findings:

Just installed WAMP on Windows 10. (There was no WAMP on my PC previously)

When I click the launch icon on my desktop, the command window opens for a few seconds and closes. The WAMP icon does not appear in the tray at the bottom right. (Although it did once, the first time, and it was Red).

I read somewhere (Google) that it could be a conflict with SkyPe also using Port 80. But my SkyPe is the latest version and Googling tells me that now you can't change (or see) the Port number on SkyPe!

What can I check please?

Thanks

Looking for a VoIP phone system.
This client currently has a PBX black box supporting over 50+ phones. They are renting 5 lines from a local teleco.
They are building a very modern 100K square foot facility and will be moving to there in the near future. I started researching a new phone system to replace the current one.
I am not a telephone guy, so I would like to hear your opinions. First of all, I guess VoIP is the way to go, correct? I am kind of an old school and did not trust VoIP at the beginning. But after using Skype calling long distance for years, I find it has better voice quality than the landline most of the time.
I heard of 3CX, a cloud based phone system with no need to run an in-house PBX hardware or software. If the PBX is virtually on the cloud, how can we connect the 5 rented lines from the teleco to the virtual PBX?    
What solution would you recommend based on your real world experience? Reliability, voice quality, easy management.

Thanks!!

We have Skype For Business with our Office 365 business subscription.  I use it all the time and see to have little trouble with it.  When I receive a calendar invite in Outlook , and it is time for the meeting to start, I click the 'Join Skype Meeting' link.   The desktop application opens, I am asked if I wasn't to use Skype For Business audio (yes) or some other audio option and then I am in the meeting room and my picture appears.  Works flawlessly.

However , some users here don't have the same experience.  For some reason, when they repeat the same steps, their browser opens?  It then prompts them to download and install the web app for Skype For Business?  Then it typically hangs.  Why does this happen?  They also have, and want to use, the desktop application for SFB.  

My browser never opens.  What is causing that to occur on theirs?  We both use the same web browser, IE, but get different results.

We are both using Surface Pro 4's running 64bit versions of WIndows 10 and the most current Office.

Thanks for any suggestions!  Frustrating! (for them).

In Skype for Business 2015, are there any APIs that I can use to query if a user has Enterprise Voice enabled?

I need to be able to differentiate users that have calling capabilities vs users that do not. Maybe being able to query if a user has a phone number associated with them would suffice too.

Dear Experts, I have a question related to telephony service. We are using IP PBX Grandstream UCM6510 with SIP trunking from The Provider.

So as my understanding, for example if our number is +AA 710xxxxx; I create a conference room in UCM6510 at ext 8888; then when customers want to join a conference room with us, they will call to +AA 710xxxxx, press 8888. Am I right? (AA is my country code)

But the Boss now have some customers in USA, UK,... and he wants his customers will call to USA, UK numbers, (for example: +1xxxxxxxxx; +44yyyyyyyy) respectively instead of our number (+AA 710xxxxx)  to join our conference room.

Is this feasible? Can you please suggest the solution? Many thanks!

Hi Experts,

One of my customers is having some trouble with her Skype conferences.

When joining by phone and entering the conference id, the automated system states, ”Sorry, I cant find a meeting with that number.”

Any ideas as to why this may be happening with her conferences and what I may do to do troubleshoot?

My customer runs a SFB on prem with several from end servers and back end servers. Exchange 2016 with several mailbox servers in a DAG. Active directory single forest/single domain with multiple sites.

When booking a Skype enabled room that a Polycom Trio isnsigned in as, what are the expectations and controls over who can walk up to the phone and join the meeting?
It seems like a privacy/security issue.  
If you join the call from the conference room phone, how can you identify yourself as the organizer? Is the only way to do that to join from another device signed in as your organizer account??

I am trying to run the remote connectivity analyser to look for an issue with my skype for business login. However, the verification of this tools fails every time almost immediately. This was working a few days ago. I have been making dns changes...are there DNS entries that need to be entered for this tool to work correctly?

Are there any tools other than Microsoft Call Quality Dashboard and Skype Analytics for measuring Skype call quality? Audio? Conerence calls? Video? We are mostly a Cisco network. There are shortcomings in the MCQ dashboard that have not been addressed since we adopted it.

We have a hybrid environment using office 365 and on-prem exchange. We have an autodiscover cname entry that points to our on prem server, All mail clients work fine. However some of the office 365 skype for business clients cannot connect. The analyser says that it cannot connect to autodiscover. MS says it should point to autodiscover.outlook.com. if I change it, them my exhange users keep getting pop ups to login...How do I make both work?

Skype 8 - force a lower resolution/frame rate for the other side.  I do not use a camera on my side and my bandwidth is slow.  In Skype 7 I never had much problem in having a conversation with someone across the world when they used video.  In Skype 8 I am ALWAYS having video problems because Skype 8 is attempting to show a high definition video and is killing the bandwidth.

I want a way (registry edit, config file edit, etc) that will force Skype 8 to use a lower resolution or frame rate so I can have some video at a reasonable standard definition level and not lose the call or freeze all the time.

Again, Skype 7 - no problems (99% of the time), Skype 8 - almost always a problem.

This is NOT a computer issue, this is a Skype 8 issue.

Thanks.

Dear all,

We currently have Skype for Business to communicate with board members located at different locations.  The quality of sound and picture is good.  However, it seems to be difficult to use by the board of trustees, because it requires a password to log in and sometimes they have an issue with audio.   The alternative solution suggested was Zoom.  I have tested the system and seem to be easy to use.  I am not sure about the quality of sound and picture?

What experience do you have with Zoom, if it is used for up to 7 users, in regards to the following points:
- Sound quality
- Picture
- Dial-in Number, reliability and sound quality

How do you compare Skype for Business with Zoom, relative to the above points?

Thanks,

Can anyone point me to a sample configuration for accommodating Skype for Business Quality of Service on their Cisco IOS and/or Nexus OS network? This would prioritize Skype audio and skype video.

I was wondering if I have O365 and have  Room resources in Exchange, and then phones in each room physically that are licensed with Skype, is there a way to set it up so that the Booking the Room resource from Outlook will add the meeting a d/or Skype meeting to the phone calendar?
Would I need to sign into the phone with the Skype account or the Exchange Resource account?

Can you have federation enabled for O365 (such as Okta) but also simultaneously have pass through authentication for applications such as Skype for Business Online so if you login O365  via the web it redirects you to Okta but if you launch Skype for Business it passes through authentication?
