PIC issues after OCS to Lync Edge migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Last week we have done the Edge cutover from OCS edge to  Lync Edge and external SIP is now pointing to Lync Edge servers.  We sill have users in OCS 2007 R2 pool .

    After the cut over ,  OCS users are unable to chat with PIC domains .. we  can see the presence of the PIC users and send the IM chats , but reply message is not coming to OCS users.

    do we need open ports between the Lync Edge and OCS pool ?  because Lync and OCS servers are in different data center and seprated by firewall.

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Thank You

    K Gopi

  • You can’t use Lync edge for OCS users, you will not receive the reply message.

    Before you migrate all OCS users to Lync server, you should use OCS edge. OCS users and Lync user work with OCS edge server. You should point to the OCS edge server in Lync topology for Lync users to use OCS edge.

  • Hi,

    you can use this link. In a migration szenario, you could have both Edge server but the federation route should be done over the OCS Edge as long you have OCS clients.
