OU For Lync 2013 Central Forest deployment when using GAL Sync RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are attempting to set up Lync 2013 in a Central Forest configuration. We have a 2 way forest trust in place. The primary forest being, the secondary forest being Exchange 2010 is deployed in both forests. Lync 2013 is deployed in forest We currently have FIM 2010 installed, using GAL Sync between both forests. For GAL Sync, we have an OU in Forest active directory called GALSync. There are currently contacts in that OU that correspond with the user accounts in forest Here's my question:

    When configuring FIM MA's for Lync 2013 Central Forest deployment, can I point the LCSCFG.xml file to the SAME GALSync OU we use for  GAL Sync? Will it see the contacts already exist and just update with the necessary attributes needed to provision the forest users for Lync? Do I need to create a separate OU for the Lync MA to use? Or, am I going about this in the wrong way?

    Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
