I have begun testing with Lync 2010 RC. In my environment, I have OCS 2007 R2 and Exchange 2010 with UM deployed. I added Lync 2010 to the environment. I can blog about that process if people are interested. Today, I learned some things about the process of moving people from OCS 2007 R2 to Lync and also some interop issues. Here is a brief summary:
Would like to have you blog about the upgrade process. Thanks!
Deinately would like to know everything you can tell me about the upgrade process, thanks.
Yes would really like to see you blog the upgrade!
I agree. We are just starting to look into upgrading and I am new to OCS and Lync, so I would fine it most helpful.
Just now installed Lync 2010 for our office, we were running OCS R2, some of users are in OCS R2 and some are in Lync2010 now if OCS R2 users logged in office and Lync 2010 user logged in as remote user, PC to PC calls are not connecting.... can you please help to rectify the issue.
Hi Dean, thanks for the excellent posting. I just wanted to run a question by you, I haven’t been able to confirm this anywhere. How do we migrate the archived data from OCS 2007 R2 to Lync 2010? Is this possible at all? All indicates that it can’t be converted, and that it would have to remain as historical data on the legacy system. If it can be migrated/converted, I’d appreciate if you can share some docs, links of any info you might have on how to tackle that piece. Thanks again.
