DisableServerCheck on Skype for Business for Mac RRS feed

  • Question

  • With the newly released Skype for Business on the Mac, is there a DisableServerCheck functionality that will allow it to connect to Lync Server 2010 like previous versions of Lync had?

    The Windows version of Skype for Business supports this (http://www.microsofthelden.nl/2015/09/25/skype-for-business-2016-client-with-an-older-version-of-lync-ocs-server/) and older versions of Lync for Mac supported it.

  • Hi Chapmanjw85,

    The Mac client relies at the moment on mobility services from UCWA available on Lync Server 2013 and SfB server 2015 so the client wouldn't work with Lync Server 2010 as its not compatible or supported server version im afraid.

    Thanks,

  • Hi chapmanjw85,

    Welcome to our forum.

    As the link which you provide, such configuration is not supported by Microsoft, Skype for business for Mac could be referred by the following link:

    https://blogs.office.com/2016/04/26/skype-for-business-mac-preview-is-here/

    Then, we find a link about how to modify it in Lync 2013, you could have a try on SFB for Mac client. However, please be free to know it is not supported in Microsoft:

    If there are any questions or issues, please be free to let me know.
