  • While Eduard's response is applicable to disabling Communicator altogether, there is no ability to restrict communication to specific users.

  • To disable the chat through OCS you make it through security policies. I enclose in this message, the contents of the template you need.
    Apply the policy on people, machines or groups that need.
    If this is the right solution, do not forget to mark it as good answer.
    A cordial greeting.
