Documentation and Licensing guidelines for Multi Tenancy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't seem to find much information about Lync Multi Tenanting anywhere. Ideally I'd like a document outlining the installtion, explaining how to make a group os users into a seperate tenant, and describing the licensing model.

    Does such a document exist?

  • Hi,

    there's no proper way to deploy Lync Server to support "Multi Tennents" at the moment. Once you deploy the server based on your domain, bacically all the users in domain can be enabled to Lync server and there's no proper method to block cummunication based on the OU. What i see is that it's not designed to work on Multi tenant.

  • Looks like there is a download available for Lync Server 2010 Enterprise MultiTenant Pack for Partner Hosting. Anyone know when the docs will be released?
