Upgrade from OCS 2007 to SFB 2015 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, need some advise with regards to upgrade from OCS to SFB.

    Based on the technet article, we can build a New SFB pool and move users from OCS to SFB pool.

    Would like to know if it is possible to deploy the SFB while OCS is running in the environment ? Can the SFB Topology builder identify the OCS servers?

  • Hi Shankar.Paulraj,

    Migrating directly from OCS 2007 R2 is not supported, you have to firstly migrate to one of the supported versions (Lync Server 2010/2013), and then migrate or in-place upgrade to Skype for Business Server 2015.


    Best regards,
