Lync 2010 - Hybrid with O365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have read that Lync 2010 can be configured in a hybrid setup with O365 by standing up a lync 2013 management server. ( or a Skype 4 Business management server )

    - To install just the lync 2013 or S4B mgmt tools, will I be required to run any schema updates for that version?

    - Currently I cannot run the mobile lync 2013 of Skype client against my Lync 2010 environment. Client not supported. Is the incompatibility in the EDGE or Internal servers?  If I configure hybrid, and move users to O365, will those upgraded users be able to use newer mobile clients?  or will they be limited by the Lync 2010 infrastructure?

    Thanks!!

    Tom

  • Hi Tom,

    For Lync 2010 and SFB hybrid environment, you just need to install Lync/Skype for Business administrative tools, this part, you don’t have to run schema updates.

    If you want to use newer version of SFB mobile client, you can move users from Lync server 2010 to SFB online, then you need to assign license for the users, after this, you can use higher version of skype for business mobile client

    Thanks!!!!
