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.

My Skype Video (Mac) is not working and I have an interview at 4PM EST today!

I see the option FaceTime HD and the second camera I plugged in ONLY after seeing the built-in camera was not recognized.

I have 1000+ users that still use 3rd party audio conferencing with Skype for Business.  
I see that these have to be moved over to Microsoft by April 1st:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/legal-and-regulatory/end-of-integration-with-3rd-party-providers
I need to get a list of all current users and what provider they have assigned, then migrate from a list.
Referencing this:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/skype/get-csonlinedialinconferencinguserinfo?view=skype-ps - I'm getting errors:
Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfo -Filter {Provider -eq "InterCall"} -First 10

Open in new window

Cmdlet invocation error
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfo], CmdletInvocationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Error processing cmdlet request,Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Hosted.Cbd.GetCsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfoCmdlet
    + PSComputerName        : admin0a.online.lync.com
Or, if I run:  
Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfo -Select ConferencingProviderOther

Open in new window

- I only get a limited number of results back and there is no "resultsize" filter available.

Or if I try to gather from this command, I'm only getting around 50 results back, and there is no "resultsize" filter available.
Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUserInfo -Select NoFilter | select displayname, provider 

Open in new window


Any help is greatly appreciated.

My objective is to find a collaborative meeting space where people can communicate with other members around an agreed upon topic without having to adhere to a particular time. Despite this flexible structure, members should still be able to 'propose' a new meeting time and new discussion topics as-needed.

I have begun the sheet here with this purpose in mind and will add to it as more information comes in over time.

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install the Microsoft Lync Web App Plugin.  I get to a point during the process where I'm prompted to run the plug in, in order to get audio and video.  However, as the progress bar gets to about 90% complete a dialogue box generates and indicates the "The specified account already exists", then closes and the users is never able to reach their meeting.

Here are some details surrounding the setup -

  • The device is a Dell laptop
  • The OS is a WIN 7 64-bit platform
  • Running Microsoft Office 2013
  • This is a domain environment
  • The user is a standard user on the laptop
  • I, as an admin, have installed the Skype Meetings App as I can see it listed in Control Panel
  • I've also got the latest version of Silver Light installed
  • I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the Skype Meetings App a couple times and get the same dialogue box - Account Already Exists
  • I've cleared the cache and history
  • We don't run Office 365

I'm a bit stumped.  Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help.

Can Cisco WiFi prioritize Skype for Business online real time ports? These would be UDP 50,000-59,999 and UDP 3478, 3479, 3480, 3481.
How would the access point be able to classify and prioritize that traffic relative to the other traffic received on the radio?

Hello Experts,

I support multiple companies and am working to enable inter domain \ inter tenant use of Teams and Skype between some of them per the article listed at the url below.  Currently, I've made changes in the Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center --> Org-wide settings --> External access area for each of the three, enabling "External access" and "Users can communicate with external Skype users" and then adding the other two domain names with status of Allowed.  After doing that I had some initial success in chatting with a user in one of the other domains when logged into the Teams app on my local system.  Since that time, however, I have attempted to chat with other users in the two other domains from my Teams app, with no success.  When I send a chat message, I typically get a message stating "This user is unavailable or offline.  We've sent an email instead.".  I even observed this when sending a chat message to another user, when I was connected remotely to his system, and was able to verify he was logged into the Team app on his system.  Is there anything else from a configuration standpoint that I need to complete?  Do I need to enable Guest access in Teams for each of the tenants?

Thanks in advance,

Russ

Skype for Business 2015 and Exchange 2016 integration/on-premise infrastructure.  Had upgraded from Lync 2010 and Exchange 2010 about 6 months ago and everything has been running smoothly.  But recently, there's 1 user out of 70 that has an issue with Skype and Exchange Unified messaging integration.  Basically, his Skype client can't properly connect to Exchange UM and thus, UM features from Skype for Biz Client are not present, i.e. call history, check/change vmail, and Calendar feed.  When checking the Skype Config Info, it shows "UCS Connection state = Exchange Connection Down" and "EWS Information = EWS not deployed".

I've tried enabling/disabling UM via EAC, running mailbox repair, and even moving the mailbox to another DB, but the issue still persists and there's no error of any kind on the event logs on exchange and skype servers.   The user's UM still works fine within Outlook.

At this point, i'm stuck and need so guidance.

With voice calls and conference calling with Microsoft Teams - is there anything
different about the IP pathing or about the protocols that are used? With Skype
the RTP gots to an Anycast address and then into the MS network. Is all that
the same with teams? Any other differences for voice? For video?

What is needed in order to use Skype For Business?
Basically, we'd like to use Skype For Business to share screens and chat between two persons in our company but our company is NOT using Office 365.
So we downloaded and installed Skype For Business. On the Sign In page, we see the message "Use the sign-in address for your organization - not a Skype Name or Microsoft account".
Please see attached screen shot.

What is the "sign-in address for your origanization"? How can we get it? Does this mean that we have to open an O365 account and be a subscriber?

Thanks

Our company uses O365 for all employees. One app we use within it is Skype for Business. We would like to get a report showing how many individual messages a given user sends from Skype. The MS reports only seem to provide session counts. I know in the conversation history you can see the messages sent/received, but to manually scroll through Inboxes and count these is not practical. Are there any PS scripts for this?

Thanks for the assistance in advance!

How can I set my Skype default options to be that anyone can present/share files when Skype is opened? My current set up means that I have a Skype meeting and then when the person wants to share I have to change the settings and then re-commence the meeting? It's set so that only people from my organisation can share...thanks

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?

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!!

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??
