Lync 2010 & Skype For Business: Must I upgrade to Lync 2013 ? RRS feed

Answers

  • In place upgrade is possible only with Lync 2013. You can have Lync 2010 pool and deploy Skype for Business pool in coexistence, however you cannot upgrade Lync 2010 to SfB.

  • You can move users homed on a Lync Server 2010 Front-End Pool directly to a Skype for Business 2015 FE Pool, followed by setting up Sfb counterpart to replace other Lync 2010 server roles in an inside-out fashion. Make sure that you have the latest patch applied though. Note that in-place upgrade (on- or offline mode) is designed to work with Lync Server 2013 Server roles only.

    Please share if this helps. Thanks.
