  • Your Lync administrator must provision your account.  You cannot self-provision.  Lync is administered locally by the Lync adminisrator  or delegated members of CS-UserAdministrator group.  In the cloud, the Office365 admin does this.

    Lync isn't like AIM, Hotmail, Outlook.com, Gmail, etc where you choose username (e.g. Most_Interesting_Man@mydomain.com) - it's integrated into Active Directory and assigned by a Lync Administrator

    BTW, welcome to the forums...

  • Hi yugundher,

    Microsoft Lync Server is an enterprise real-time communications server. The Lync client is used to connect Lync Server. The Lync client is only meant to be used with a Lync Server (hosted in a corporate environment) or an account hosted on Office 365 with Lync functionality enabled. After you doing that you can create a user on Lync Server and login to Lync Server with Lync client.

     

    If you are not the Lync Administrator, please contact your IT Support for assistance.

     

    Best regards,

    Eric
