Lync Dialin url on global deployment


  • Hi,

    Global deployment with many sites.  No Director. Of course only one dial in url.

    Let's say

    I see with a http sniffer that when I try to login with a  user the browser is really being redirected to the external URL of the Front End that is homing the user. (Independent of AD Domain and SIP Domain)

    If I try to login with another user that is homed in another site and another pool the browser will be redirected to a different external URL, published by the Reverse Proxy.

    Is this the expected behaviour? I know that is maybe an obvious question but could not find any documentation that confirms this.

    Many thanks

  • Hi,

    The Meeting URL would be redirect, depending on where the user's pool is located.

    However, the dial in URL works a little differently. While the URL is pointing to your Lync first Pool, all pools user will use the that pool dial in page. When the user is on a second pool and logs into the first pool dial in page, no redirection will occur. For details, you can refer to Simple URLs in migration scenario.
