Lync 2010 to Skype for Business RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have few questions related to this Parallel Migration ON PREM.

    I have Lync 2010 Enterprise with 2 FE, 2 Edge, collation mediation Server, Monitoring server.

    I am planning to install Skype for Business with same number of servers but completely different DNS entries (Not SIP Domain) for everything like meet will be meeting, Dialin will be Dial-in, Access will be AccessSkype, AV will be SkypeAV and so on.

    Once I move the user from Lync 2010 pool to SFB Pool. following questions I have.

    1. All the Future meeting will be broken Since MEET is changed to MEETING. Will Skype Meeting Migration Tool work to migrate all the meetings from MEET.SipDomain.com to MEETING.SIPDOMAIN.COM?
    2. Do I have to create new Dialin information for SFB or I can use the same from Lync 2010 while both have PRD dusers. If not will the migration tool will update that information for SFB user?
    3. We still have mixed machine with Lync 2010 and Lync 2013, if the user migrated to SFB pool, will Lync 2010 or 2013 Client will work I mean are they backward compatible, it will give me time to plan the Upgrade to SFB client later.
    4. Did I missed any other issues?

    thanks in advance,

  • Thanks Holger, just want to understand the answer.

    in Answer 2, it means that I can use the same conferencing information both in Lync 2010 and SKB while both running in PRD? like SKB user meeting will use SKB Pool and LYNC 2010 User meeting will use Lync 2010 Pool. there will be no issue.

    thanks,

    zak

  • Hi ZakBhai,

    Agree with Holger.

    As a supplement, when you changed DNS records, you should notice to change the simple URLs and certificates for DNS records, you could change simple URLs on the Lync Topology Builder,
    1.Right-click the Lync Server node, and then click Edit Properties.
    2.In the Simple URLs pane, select the simple URLs that you want to change, and then click Edit URL.
    3.Update the URL to the value you want, and then click OK to save the edited URL
    4.Publish the topology.

    After migration, you can use both Lync 2010 and Lync 2013 clients.

    For the question 2, you mentioned that you want to migrate dial in information, would you please tell us what information did you want to migration, did you want to migrate dial in access number ?

    Normally, after the migration, you can use Meeting update tool to update the information. Then Lync 2010 user can use their own meeting URL join the dial in conference, SFB user can use their own meeting URL to join the meeting too.

    You can test with your lab first then applies to product information.

    Hope this information is helpful.
