SfB Online using Exchange on-premise? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I have an Office 365 tenant with a handful of users assigned Skype for Business Plan 2 licenses (nothing else).  There is no hybrid setup, the tenant is not sync'd to our on-premise AD.

    One of the users is assigned to a Polycom Trio (Skype Room System) in our boardroom so I need users to be able to send meeting invitations using the Skype Web Scheduler (they don't have their own SfB license or SfB installed on their computer). How can I configure it to use our on-premise Exchange server?

    If that is not possible what other options do I have?  Do I need to configure a hybrid setup to make that work?  Can I somehow enable users to send a Skype meeting in Outlook without a SfB license or SfB installed?  The Trio will only work when it receives a Skype meeting request not a normal meeting request.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Ted,

    You could integrate your SFB online with you Exchange on-premise server, after that you could use Outlook to schedule the meeting ,but should need the skype for business license to join the meeting .I do not know which version of your exchange server ,please check the following link about the Feature support.

    if you want to integrate SFB online with Exchange on-premise ,you could refer to this link.

  • Hi Leon.

    Thanks for the reply.  As mentioned my users don't have SfB installed, or indeed a license, hence using a 'boardroom' account for the Polycom Trio this does have a license).  If I follow the guide you supplied will I be able to use the Skype Web Scheduler to send the invitation to users from 'boardroom@mydomain.com'?

    Or, even better, how can I copy and paste the links from the web scheduler into a regular meeting request and treat it as a Skype meeting?  The Trio only allows you to join meetings sent as 'Skype meetings'.

    Thanks,

    Ted
