Is there a way to get a report on Skype response groups sign in/out.  We are running Skype for Business server 2015 and we have created response groups that users can sign in/out of.

Leadership would like a report of the Skype users who have signed in/out of a particular response group.

We use Skype for Business for inner-office messaging.  Several users are experiencing a intermittent issue where their Skype pictures clear and appear as a generic "black" headshot.  Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?  Appreciate it.untitled.png

Hello Experts. We have Exchange 2013 Cu21 with AD2012R2, Skype for business 2016 on prem. we have set up hybrid configuration with Office 365 for Exchange and SFB. We have started migrations of users to Office 365. I've noticed, if i migrate the users mailbox and cut-over the mailbox to Exchange Online first, then cut-over skype for business to SFB online...the users contacts in SFB are lost after cut-over of SFB to SFB online...which is not what i would like.

I receive an error message if i try to migrate/ cutover the users SFB to SFB online after their mailbox has already been cutover to office 365. I have to use the switch '-force' to cut over the users SFB to SFB online, then it is successfully able to cutover. but the user loses their contacts in SFB online, that existed in SFB prior to the cutover.

But if i cut over a users SFB first to SFB online, before cutting over the users mailbox, i do not receive any error message for cutting over SFB. then the users SFB contacts get carried over aswell, and they do not get lost. What is the reason for this. Has anyone encountered this issue with SFB migrations? How can it be resolved for users that i cut-over their email first before cutting over their SFB to Office 365? Please let me know, and thanks in advance.

Business phone systems - looking to upgrade. What are the options people are currently using? For example if we go to an all cloud based system - what happens when we lose internet, does the system have a fall back adsl number that people can still contact us on? Also anyone used Skype for Business and if so - does it use much bandwidth? Can we have multiple numbers?

Thanks

I have to install Skype for Business 2015 server for one of my client but for S4B Edge server there network team is not going to allow internal network IP to be assigned to Edge server's internal NIC placed in DMZ,. I want to know can we assign DMZ subnet's IP to both internal and external NIC of edge server? And then will allow communication between internal edge NIC and Frontend Server.  Will this work that way?

I am having an odd issue, some users are constantly receiving a request to enter there credentials for Outlook and Skype. We have a hybrid O365 environment and for the life of me I can not figure out why this keeps happening. The fix I have found is to remove all saved credentials and then have them re-enter but for some users this happens every few weeks and it is extremely frustrating. Anyone else see this of know how to fix it? O365 support hasn't been much help.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I have a customer that wants to always have Skype for Business log in with the credentials of the logged in user.
They dont want the end user to type username or password, but grab it from Windows.
They run Windows 10 and Office 365.

Hi Everyone

I was asked to look into a Task which I'm not sure if it's possible. I have a Lync Server 2013 Enterprise.

Is there a way to set a few users with a specific policy which will allow them to Contact internally only certain users, and Block to Contact anyone else.

This Solution can contain a new Pool in Topology or I'm wondering if there is an option I can achieve them under one Topology.

Also Would be there options like that in Later Skype For Business version.

Hi Experts,

I just recently purchased a MacBook Air for myself to learn more about the operating system and how to use it, so my knowledge of how to configure things in it is pretty elementary, if non existant.

I have a problem I can't seem to find a suitable solution with google. On my install, I have 3 icons that appear as Question marks instead of their icons. Please see example image below.

Icons are a Question Mark
Can anyone explain how I can resolve this, so that the Grammarly, Firefox and Skype icons appear as they should?

Please note: Including any screenshots with your comments if possible (that you think may be helpful) would be a real bonus for me and much appreciated at this stage of my learning curve ;-)

Hi Experts,

Is there any other way or method of gathering inactivity reports other than going to the Office 365 portal in reporting and exporting Office 365 active users?  How accurate/reliable is the data in this for last activity in exchange, skype, sharepoint, etc.?

I also ran this PS script, but this only give me the lastlogon time/date stamp of the mailbox:
Get-LastLogonStats.ps1
https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Export-Office-365-User-7fc0b73f

My goal is to manage 30k users, and clean up licenses that are no longer needed by 90 days of inactivity.  This would include all aspects of the license:  mail/exchange, skype, sharepoint, access any of the online apps such as word, excel, powerpoint, etc.

Appreciate any direction anyone can point me in!

Hello,

I need little help with renewing 3rd party certificate on Skype for Business 2015 server.
As per pictures attached, i want to renew only that certificate (SIP, since it is 3rd party and all others are from internal CA), and when i go to Request with Advanced option, and populate everything i end up with csr, that has a common name of webdir.<domain>.com, in stead of sip.<domain>.com (as it is atm).

So, the question is how to renew this certificate but to have CN of sip.<domain>.com, when there is no option to define CN?

Can I use maybe exchange server, generate CSR there, then just delete it after i get new cert, or something like that?

Regards,
Ivan.

Is there a way to customise the format of the Skype Meeting request text that appears when setting up the meeting in Outlook.
I would like to separate the text and clean it up a bit.
e.g.
Toll Number:        +61nnnn
Conference ID:     61216546
 

At the moment, it includes the phone number and conference ID in a single string, as per below.
Current Skype Meeting format

I have an Office 365 Skype for Business phone number that is loaded onto my iPhone X using the Skype for Business iPhone X app.

I would like to make it so that whenever I call someone from my iPhone X my Skype for Business phone number (and not my iPhone X phone number) will display on the caller ID screen of the person I am calling.

I want everyone to be calling my Skype for Business phone number and not my iPhone phone number.

I am the Office 365 Global administrator for my Office 365 domain.

How can this be done? Where do I need to go to enable this setting?

I have a client using an old Vista laptop and a year-old version of Skype.  When someone calls him he cannot hear the caller.  

Details:
1. In Options, both incoming and outgoing audio tests pass (he can hear audio for sure in the test).
2. He can hear audio when he uses Windows Media Player.
3. It's not an issue with the caller, because he cannot hear any caller at all.
4. The caller can hear him fine.

Anyone have any idea?
Thanks.
Dave
