Working with Lync Server

Working with Lync Server

This section describes how to create or modify a connection to Microsoft Lync Server so that One Identity Quick Connect Express for Active Directory could read and write data in Lync Server. This section also describes what data you can read and/or write in Lync Server by using One Identity Quick Connect Express for Active Directory.

To create a connection to Microsoft Lync Server, you need to use One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine in conjunction with a special connector called Lync Server Connector.

The Lync Server Connector supports the following features:

Before creating a new connection to Lync Server, make sure that unsigned Windows PowerShell scripts are allowed to run on the computer on which One Identity Quick Connect Express for Active Directory is installed. This is required because One Identity Quick Connect Express for Active Directory uses Windows PowerShell scripts to work with Microsoft Lync Server.

NOTE: To view the current Windows PowerShell execution policy, you can use the Get-ExecutionPolicy cmdlet supplied with Windows PowerShell. To change the Windows PowerShell execution policy, you can use the Set-ExecutionPolicy cmdlet supplied with Windows PowerShell..

To create a new connection

  1. In the Quick Connect Administration Console, open the Connections tab.
  2. Click Add connection, and then do the following:
    1. In the Connection name box, type a descriptive name for the connection.
    2. From the Use the specified connector list, select Lync Server Connector.
    3. Click Next.
  3. Use the following text boxes:
    • Lync Server computer name. Specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Lync Server computer to which you want to connect.
    • User name. Specify a domain user account that has sufficient rights to administer Lync Server users. The account must be a member of all of the following groups that Lync Server creates in Active Directory: CsAdministrator, CsUserAdministrator, and CsServerAdministrator.
    • Password. Type the password of the specified user account.

    When you are finished, you can click Test Connection to verify the specified connection settings.
