Lync Users and Devices script – improvements


The new Lync Users and Devices script contains all the features of the old one, plus the following:

  • Added an option for non-EN users to reduce Excel errors (thanks BSterkenburg).
  • Also listing Dial-in Conferencing numbers:
Display Name Pool Line URI Primary Language
  • And Exchange UM contacts:
Display Name SIP Address Line URI Auto Attendant? Hosted Voicemail Policy

Run the script from your desktop (NOT your Lync server), where you have Excel installed. The script will ask you for Lync Admin credentials and one of your servers \ pools and will automatically connect to them.

A correction regarding deployment of Edge servers as Domin members is also there. Recently, deploying Edge servers as domain members was not suppoerted. Now, it is supported, yet – not recommended.
