Hi,

We were recommended Logitech Group HD to use in meeting room for video conferencing.

We have Skype for Business and use a Windows 10 PC in our meeting room.

Here are our requirements for the video conferencing solution:

- Up to date, i.e. released 2019 - 2020 (2020 preferred if very good)
- Good quality
- Flexible
- Offers more than standard webcam for a PC.
- Can pick up sound from all different directions
- Works with Skype for Business and other relevant platforms
- Budget: €500 - €1800

What would you recommend that would be similar or better than Logitech Group HD?

Thanks,
Robbie

Skype for business 2019 Yealink T58A | Trusted Certificate
I need assistance with phones we recently purchased, all T58A handsets with Skype for business firmware.
 
I have tried all 3 latest available firmware and stuck with this version as it offered a simpler login screen for users.
 
Scenario:
Phones register correctly for as long as the trusted certificate is not present.
Periodically the handsets will populate with a CA certificate on line 1 even though everything is set to disabled below and then the users are unable to sign into the phones.

What is causing the phones to download the internal root domain CA certificate?

I am able to take control of remote machine through Skype for business and Microsoft Team both. I can move cursor on remote machine but not able to click or perform any further actions. This doesn't seem to be machine specific or bandwidth issue but looks like something is blocking from performing action on remote machine although remote user has given the control of their machine. Does it something related with Office 365 administration related or something else? How to resolve, please?

Trying to get Skype for Business 2019 hosted voicemail policy activated and working. When using Skype for Business PowerShell with Set-CsHostedVoicemailPolicy -Identity Global -Description "Global Cloud Voicemail Policy" -Destination exap.um.outlook.com -Organization nwucloud.onmicrosoft.com -Tenant “331c86e7-d032-436f-bc53-f2552d031012” we are getting an error saying "Set-CsHostedVoiceMailPolicy: A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name Tenant". We have confirmed that the tenant ID is correct but cannot get Skype to accept the parameter for VoiceMail to work. We do not have Exchange on-premise and have Skype for Business 2019 on-premise connected in Hybrid with Exchange Online. All other integration is working. How can we get the hosted voicemail to work?error.PNG

I am trying to install Skype for Business Server 2015. I have no experience with the product, and I have been following an article on Microsoft's website. I am on the steps to prepare active directory. The schema preparation went fine. But the forest preparation is failing with an error that the directory object is not found on one of the domain controllers. The error is below. Wondering if anyone has seen anything like this. The domain and forest functional levels are at 2008r2, Most of our domain controllers, including the one experiencing the error, are on that version. The domain controller that hosts the FSMO roles is running Server 2016. The server that I am attempting to install Skype on is running Server 2016.

Error: An error occurred: "Microsoft.Rtc.Management.ADConnect.ADOperationException" "Active Directory operation failed on "NAS1-AD2.domain.trianglecu.org". You cannot retry this operation: "Directory object not found
0000208D: NameErr: DSID-0310020A, problem 2001 (NO_OBJECT), data 0, best match of:

Hi Everyone

I need advice how to setup External DNS entries for our SfB/Lync Edge Server for following scenario:

We are building a new Skype For Business Site for a Department outside out Country. I build already a Front End Server and Edge and partly it is starting to work.,

My problem is that both sites will share at least one sip domain. Lets say the domain is called experts.com. For our existing site which fully works I've create Externally  following records:

Just to add that the Fully Productin Site is still Lync 2013 and the new Site is Skype For Business. In near future the Production Lync will upgraded but even then i will face below problem as we are not doing In-Place upgrade.


Server               Type       FQDN                                                               IP Address
Lync Edge      A               sip.experts.com                                               62.172.177.11
Lync Edge      SRV              _sip._tls.experts.com                                       sip.experts.com
Lync Edge      SRV               _sipfederationtls._tcp.experts.com               sip.experts.com
Lync Edge      SRV               _xmpp-server._tcp.experts.com       sip.experts.com

My question is what do i need to do to include the new Edge Server which has a seperate NAT Address from the working one:
Is it enough if i create a new A record sip.experts.com  with the new NAT IP address. Will SfB and Lync be smart enough to route correctly traffic or what are is the suggested way to achieve that.

For those who will tell…

I am going to explain this the best I can as it is a unique scenario.  Below are notes we gathered when testing:

  • Searched for John Doe by typing Doe and received the message "We couldn't mind an exact match. Try refining your search"
  • Typed Evans - Tracey Evans did not come up
  • Backspaced to Eva - Tracey Evans did come up
  • Entered Evan - Tracey Evans did come up
  • Typed Evans - Tracey Evans did not come up
  • Backspaced to Evan - Tracey Evans did come up
  • Backspaced to Eva - Tracey Evans did NOT come up (inconsistent with 3rd bullet)
  • When I first started watching Phil, I noticed he was under "New" instead of Groups or Status.  I had him change to Groups and that is where we were testing.
  • He also noted that some days he is fine and can search without issue.

So far we have tried the following:

  • Browse to %localappdata%\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync\sip_<xyz@hbkcpa.com>
  • Delete the following files:
  • Galcontacts.db
  • galcontacts.db.idx
  • CoreContact.cache
  • ABS_<sign-in name>.cache
  • Mfugroup.cache
  • PersonalLISDB.cache
  • PresencePhoto.cache
  • Restart Lync, allow 30 min for contacts to sync through

  • Cleared login cache in Skype, logged out, and back in


We have had success with the first option, but after logging out and back in to Citrix the issue presents itself again.  Is anyone else having similar issues?

User (A) wish to be able to schedule Skype Meetings on behalf of user (B) and user (C). I connected to both user (B) and (C)'s Outlook and granted user (A) delegation access. She is now able to schedule Skype Meetings on behalf of user (B) but when she tries to schedule a meeting for user (C), she is still getting the error message below:


"You do not have permissions to schedule Skype Meetings on behalf of the owner of this account. Please contact the owner of the account to get delegate permissions in Skype for Business."

Hello,

As Skype for Business will not be support soon, we are trying Microsoft Team.

When I first tried it, there was an option which let me put in my phone number after I joined the meeting.  

I do not see that option any more.  That means all users will need a head set and microphone connnect to their computers in order for the meeting invitees to hear each other, right?

Someone who knows please advise.  

Thank you very much.

Looking for ways to limit users to only using Microsoft Teams for IM, voice and video calls.

We already use Slack and think that Slack does what Slack does better than Teams.

Unfortunately due to Skype for Business going end of life, we are being forced into Teams.

Some of the telecoms, video-conferencing and IM stuff is great in Teams but we prefer Slack for collaborative working.

We don't want to confuse users though, so are looking for ways to lock down the Teams specific stuff but still allow people to use it for the stuff it does well.

Has anyone got any advice about how to lock it down?

One other way we thought we could tackle it was to have notifications enabled for anyone that creates so that we can delete them / advise against.  Any thoughts about achieving that?

Hi, we had our user BT Meet Me accounts integrated into Skype For Business and it was working fine until recently, now the BT conference details are missing from the footer of the Skype invite... I check through Teams admin/skype legacy portal and the details are missing there too, when I add them back in again, it looks like they save but dont... have MS discontinued this feature with a view to 'forcing' us to use their audio options?!?

We recently experienced some Microsoft Exchange database corruption and worked with Microsoft to get a new database created and then I restored emails from backup. One of the things I've now noticed afterwards is that the "Play on Phone" option is missing from Outlook on all clients.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/voice-mail-unified-messaging/set-up-client-voice-mail-features/enable-or-disable-play-on-phone


I followed the steps in the above Microsoft article to ensure that it is enabled and it is. I even disabled it and re-enabled it seeing if that would help and it didn't.

I'm not sure what else to try. Any thoughts?

Hi,

We have a Skype account for our company.

We sign in with our company email address to access our Skype account on our Windows 10 Pro PC.

For people to get in contact with us, they usually request a Skype ID.

Our Skype ID displays as something like the following: live:" "_(numbers)

Other companies have their Skype Name/ ID displayed without the "live:" part like "walmart" for example.

We would like to change our Skype ID/Name to something better as it does not look professional.

We are aware we can change the display name for the account.

How do we change the Skype Name/ID for our Skype account?

Thanks,
Robbie

Microsoft Teams continues to restart. The login window appears for a moment and then restarts. After 10 attempts it stops.
I use an Office 365 account and MsTeams works regularly from the web.
All other Office 365 programs work regularly including Skype for business.
I tried to delete all the credentials present in the PC but without resolving.
Tips?

Good afternoon,

I'm trying to help my neighbor out with Skype.

First off, he is using Skype, not Skype Business.

He has multiple PCs (HPs, Microsoft Surface, ...) and this occurs on all of them in the same manner, so it is highly doubtful it is a PC hardware issue.

The issue he is having is that quite often during a video call the session crashes.  He also specifies, this especially happens when communicating from here (Canada) with his European counterparts.  Skype remains open, but the call itself is lost.

I found https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA1417/how-much-bandwidth-does-skype-need and a Speed test on his network gave 25 Mbps download and 1.5 Mbps upload.  So at first glance it should suffice.

Is there a log created anywhere that can be consulted as to why a Call is dropped?
Could the upload speed of 1.5 Mbps be the issue? (I'm assuming this would fluctuate and then if other things are going on at the time perhaps this is simply insufficient?)
Would anyone have any recommendations?
Or, is this a normal behavior and the reality of using Skype?
