Skype is for doing things together, whenever you’re apart. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people that matter to you, wherever they are.

With Skype, you can share a story, celebrate a birthday, learn a language, hold a meeting, work with colleagues – just about anything you need to do together every day. You can use Skype on whatever works best for you - on your phone or computer or a TV with Skype on it. It is free to start using Skype - to speak, see and instant message other people on Skype for example.

For many years I have been using Skype with a Hotmail login.  This week, skype returns the "Sorry, we didn't recognize your sing-in details.  please check you rSkype Name and password then try again."

I can go to a different computer and it logs on fine.

If I go to the "Problems signing in?" link, my user name is recognized and when I put in the password I am taken to a Skype page to purchase time.  I can access my profile from that page, and all looks fine.  since I can log on from other computers, I believe the issue is not with skype.

I tried to restore to an earlier time, but the restore function returns with an error indicating it could not access one file and to disable the anti-virus program.

I am running Kaspersky total protection 2016.  I have disabled it  and get the same results.  Skype is allowed in the Kaspersky firewall.

I suspected a firewall issue, but since Skype is trusted within the  Kaspersky firewall, that should allow it to work.  I disabled the Kaspersky fire wall and have the same results

The only new program installed recently was Cisco WebEx Meeting Center.

The operating system is Windows 10 with 1607 update installed

I have a Hybrid environment (Office 365, Exchange 2016) that I am trying to get Skype rooms setup.
I found the following article, but it is not working.
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt691570.aspx

I have tried running this on the Exchange server and the Azure server.
I have confirmed both are on Powershell 4.
I always run PS in Administrator mode
I am able to successfully connect to a powershell session for Office 365 Exchange Online Deployment.

When I try to configure an existing resource I receive an error:
Set-Mailbox -MicrosoftOnlineServicesID $rm -room -Name "Conf Room 1" -RoomMailboxPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString $newpass -AsPlainText -Force) -EnableRoomMailboxAccount $true

Error:
Set-Mailbox : Missing an argument for parameter 'RoomMailboxPassword'. Specify a parameter of type 'System.Object' and try again.

I have a user who does not have this icon in her Outlook 2013 application. Rest of the users in the domain do have it. I've downloaded it from Office 365 and installed it on her machine. When I checked in COM Add-ins, the "Skype Meeting Add-in for Microsoft Office 2013" does not show up. We us Office 2013 Professional Plus and Office 365 and we are in a single domain.  Thank you.

How do you completely remove any trace of Skype for Business on a W10 computer? I have removed it using Program and Features and removed the folder under the Program Data folder but it still remains.

I hope this sounds at least somewhat educated but honestly, I'm kinda flying blind here. Here's what I'm up against.

I have a Skype for Business 2015 Server that is up and running. IM and internal video calling work great (except for one issue but that's for another time) as well as internal calling (only have 4 phones hooked up currently - Polycom CX600s). It's integrating with Exchange perfectly (Unified Messaging for voicemail). However, we're having trouble getting it connected to our SIP provider. Let me explain how that is set up.

Our SIP provider has given us a separate data port in their switch exclusively for voice traffic. I've got it hooked up into NIC4 on the server (NIC1 is used for internal traffic and NIC2 and NIC3 will eventually be teamed with NIC1) and it's working with the configuration given from our provider (IP, DNS, Gateway, etc.). They are using a Broadsoft switch and have us set up like a Cisco Call Manager. I have no idea how to make this work. I've attempted to set up the PSTN gateways and Trunks in the Topology builder as well as the dial plans, etc. in the Skype Control Panel but I've been unable to get the server to make or receive a test call.

At this point, I'm not sure what I've done wrong. Can anyone be of assistance?

This is about the incoming call to one of my user A on her Skype. The strange thing is, she can see the incoming notification, and able to receive the incoming call if in the one-to-one situation. However, when in the group, she couldn't see any notification, and only see the message - Missed group call. As for dialing call, she got no problem.

What could be went wrong, and how should we troubleshoot?

Thanks in advance.

We have recently updated from lync to Skype for business. One of our users profile message seems to not allow them to change it or erase it. We also have another user who's lync picture still shows an old one from previous years. I was curious to where this data get stored at, and how I might be able to access it.

Looking for a way to recover my main.db the database was deleted aug.5 of this year so I know I want everything before aug.4 how can I do this without paying to have the harddrive looked into??? I can use software just want to get that one file back i'm sure there has to be a way rather then learning computer forensics myself and doing it..

Hi
im tasked with trying to come up with a small business phone system for 3 business users.  They are already on o365 small business premium i think and they have skype working, not that they are using it much yet.
They are moving into a new office that is completely bare at present.  Ive proposed using wireless for internet and at the same time looking at potential of skype phones, isdn system or some cheap sip system (if there is one) whilst has the ability to increase in size as the company grows.  
They can get fiber 50+mb so not an issue, but assume they will need a router and maybe a switch for the handling of dscp/qos etc?
They may also use the analogue line for calls also short term but its only one line..
Suggestions?

I'm planning to deploy out Skype for Business Online Client to on-prem organization where they'll login using their O365 credentials.
My understand is that, as new users, they'll have contact lists pre-populated with their Manager and the manager's direct reports (their organization chart based co-workers based on AD attributes), is that correct?

If so, and they get a new manager and share different direct reports, will their old contacts go away? Or would it be the user's responsibility to clean up older, unnecessary contacts on an ongoing basis?
