  • Hi James,

    Regardless the SQL server is the same or not, please kindly note the meetings scheduled by the users could be moved at the meantime with the migration of user data by running Move-CsUser command.

    And in order to move the content shared during a meeting, for example PowerPoint, Whiteboard, attachments or poll data, please use the -MoveConferenceData parameter as part of the Move-CsUser cmdlet.

    By the way, if you also want to migrate the back end database, this article could be as the reference.

    Kind regards,

  • Hi,

    Yes, the scheduled meetings will be migrated to new server once a user is moved. When a user account is moved to a Skype for Business Server 2015, please kindly note the following information is moved with that user account:

    • Meetings already scheduled by the user. This includes moving the conferencing directories and conferencing data.
    • User's personal identification number (PIN). The user's current PIN continues to work until it expires or the user requests a new PIN.

    By the way, If you want to migrate Lync server 2013 to SFB server 2015, you need to point all DNS records to SFB server 2015.

    For edge server, during the migration, please point the next hop to SFB server 2015.

    And I will also share a guide which introduces the migration procedures from Lync 2013 to SFB 2015 for you, click here for more details.


    Reference:

  • My Lync server SQL server is different and Skype server is having different server.

    Then also the meeting will be moved to Lync pool.
