Enabling SBS users in Lync RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a newly installed Lync Standard server on a Windows 2008 Standard member server in a Windows SBS 2008 network.  When I use the Lync Control Panel on the server to enable Lync users, I find I cannot enable users I've added using the Windows SBS Console.  If I add a new users through ADUC, the users show up when I search for them in the Lync Control Panel.

    Any suggestions on how to enable existing, Windows SBS Console-created users using the Lync Control Panel?

    Thank you!

  • Is it possible to get around this limitation by setting up a second DC on Windows Server 2008 in the SBS network? I think this should work, this is what I am trying next.
