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.

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

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:

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.

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.

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?

We are doing a hybrid migration to Office 365. So far any users that have been migrated no longer have the ability to save conversation history to their outlook and our skype for business cant can authenticate to their mailbox. All other aspects are working. When a user opens their skype it authenticates to our on prem sfb server however authentication to mailbox fails

Windows 7 laptop 64 bit. Skype 4 Business 2015. MS Office O365 downloaded locally (2016) When sharing the desktop, others on the call can see my desktop.  When the user tries to open up a powerpoint so they can see it in the current shared desktop or choose the option to open a powerpoint in the current Skype window directly, user gets an error of, "Sorry, we ran into a problem. Please try again."  That's it. Repaired Skype, uninstalled and re-installed Skype and Office.  Could it just be a Windows profile thing??  Thanks,

In Skype for Business Server 2015, Is there a way to disable clients from retrieving location information from the LIS/Secondary LIS every time the client registers with the server? I want to prevent the client from performing a HELD request to get location information when it first registers to the server. Is this possible with the on-prem server?

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?

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?

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.
