Change Skype for Business SIP Profile cache location RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Is it possible to change the filepath where the Skype for Business SIP Profile is created on a client?

    I've been looking for a registry key for this but haven't been able to find one. Currently, the profiles are being created in %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync

  • No it;s not possible, the application is designed in such a way where the profile will be stored under Office's application data's directory i.e. %userprofile%\appdata\local\microsoft\office\16.0\Lync

    Even though if there is a feasibility to change, it will cause Skype for Business client abnormal behavior.

    Curios to know, what is the reason behind you are looking for a feasibility to change the SIP profile path change ?

  • Hi Whydoesntminelooklikethat,

    Agree with Neeranjan Shettar. The path of SFB cache is designed, you could not change it, otherwise, it may have some problems when you use it.

  • It seems not possible can change that location. If it is an experimental work , maybe u can use a sandbox app.

  • Yeah... but we'll end-up seeing the abnormal behavior of SFB client if so :)

  • Thanks for your reply!

    Somehow, the only user account on the computer has lost all NTFS permissions over the SIP Profile folder %userprofile%\appdata\local\microsoft\office\16.0\Lync\sip_onlyuseraccount@contoso.com

    This account is a member of the Administrators user group and has Full Control over %userprofile%\appdata\local\microsoft\office\16.0\Lync 

    I tried to deal with the permission issue but thought maybe changing the path would be an alternative!
