Install customized Skype for Business 2016 Client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Our present environment includes OCS 2007 and Cisco Jabber and completed Skype for Business 2015 servers setup. We are looking for suggestions to push SfB 2016 client to all systems using SCCM 2012 R2, also have to install the customized version manually on some systems where SCCM agent not installed.

    We created the .msp file (setup.exe /admin) with following options.  Mentioned the MAK Key, Display Level as None, Setup_reboot as Never with Setup Properties, Enabled ->Opt-in Wizard; Disabled ->Customer Experience Improvement  Program; Disabled->Send Office Feedback with Modify User Settings, Configured Registry Keys - HKCU\Software\IM Providers\DefaultIMApp:Lync & HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Call Integration\IMApplication:Lync and saved Custom_file.MSP in updates folder. 

    For manual installation edited the config.xml as below

    <Display Level="None" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="Yes" AcceptEula="yes" />  
    <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />
    <Setting Id="REBOOT" Value="ReallySuppress"/>

    Manual Installation is planning with command: setup.exe /config config.xml

    For installation through SCCM we are planning to follow the article "http://prajwaldesai.com/how-to-deploy-office-2016-using-sccm-2012-r2/"

    Here we a have a few concerns

    a) We want to auto-start Communicator when a user logged in to the PC till we migrate the user from Communicator to Skype and once we complete the migration then as usual SfB should start automatically

    b) Even though we mentioned the MAK key with config and .msp file the SfB client is asking to activate the product, how can we correct this with manual installation

    c) Installation through SCCM doesn't need config.xml file, right?

    d) Cisco Jabber is overwriting the following registry keys and it takes precedence over SfB presence with Outlook

    HKCU\Software\IM Providers\DefaultIMApp:Lync 

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Call Integration\IMApplication:Lync 

    How can block Jabber from overwriting this value each time we starts Jabber or is there a way to update this value to Lync each time we starts SfB client

    Thanks in advance
