Lync Control Panel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Couple of quick (Hopefully) questions about Lync Control Panel

    1. CP by default only displays 200 items in Users search. Any way to increase that ?

    2. it also doesn't display users' LineURI in a search. (to know LineURI, we have to go into the details of each user) Any way to enable it ? This is a simple admin task for a customer who just wants to know which user has a particular DDI allocated to or just wants to know what DDI's are free.

    I can create a powershell command but thought it would be easier if i can use Lync CP.

    Thanks in Advance

  • The story I have been told is that the Control Panel is meant for simple lookups and basic administration. If you want to do anything actually worthwhile, you have to drop to Powershell. Sounds like a giant step backwards to me, but MS did the same with Exchange. I thought he point of Windows was the GUI, not the command prompt but what do I know?

  • hmm... True - what do we know ? Lync is supposed to be the 'PBX Killer' but as you said, it is like 1 step forward and 3 step backwards - Got this simple question from one of the customers who has about 500 DDI's. I thought 'Why Not ?' - It should be do-able.

    As you said, I already made a simple one liner script to acheive this - but can't expect everyone to use powershell. Anyways, Many thanks.
