Skype for Business 2016 deployment options RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been given the task to deploy SFB 2016 to a few hundred PCs in our organisation and need to find out what our deployment options are.

    My initial preference is via GPO but I am struggling to find an MSI version of SFB. We only have access to the ISO for the installs which I have extracted but no MSI to be found.

    Does anyone know where we can get the msi?

    Failing this what other options do we have? I have seen guides for SCCM deployment but we do not have this set up in our environment

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi ,

    You could download the SFB 2016 basic version, then use third part tool(please search “exe to msi converter free ” in google) ,convert this exe file to msi, then you could use the GPO to install it.
