OCS only email addresses find results not short names RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an environment that won't allow us to search by just name.  It only finds people by the full email address.  I want to be able to just search the firstname lastname.  What do we have setup wrong that doesn't allow this?

  • Did this issue happen for other users?

    If the use is a new Lync user, it will take some times to sync the address book.

    Open %User Profile %/Appdata/Microsoft/Communicator/Sip name, check if  you can find the file Galcontact.db.

  • This is for OCS not Lync.  This is happening for everyone.  That is why I think it's a configuration issues.  When you say open, this is on the user end, not the server, correct?  I'm thinking this is a server configuration issues not on the user end unless the server is pushing this setting out.
