    During the March 2013 patch tuesday, Microsoft released a patch (KB2760445) for Office Web Apps server 2013. The patch improves stability and performance and includes the latest fixes for known issues.

    The Office Web Apps server role is used by Lync and Exchange to present Office Documents in a viewable format within client applications.

    To prevent issues after updating, please follow this guide to update your Office Web Apps 2013 servers: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj966220.aspx

    In short:

    1. Download the update
    2. Remove the Office Web Apps Farm: Remove-OfficeWebAppsMachine
    3. Install the Update
    4. Recreate the farm using New-OfficeWebAppsFarm with appropriate parameters like -internalURL and -externalURL

    Make sure you recreate the new farm with the same parameters as the current farm.

    Failing to follow these update steps may lead to a broken Office Web Apps server.  Note that this patch is also distributed through Windows Update and the above instructions still apply!

  • 03/26/13--06:39: The Lync Room System (LRS)
  • Lync Room System is a meeting room solution consisting of integrated hardware and software delivered by our partners and optimized to join Lync meetings. With Lync Room System you can join an online meeting with one touch and be ready to collaborate with remote attendees in seconds. It has all the equipment you need for great meetings:

    1. High definition touch displays (1080p) for showing video and enabling collaboration. Lync Room Systems are available with 1 or 2 front of room touch displays depending on your room size
    2. High definition video camera for capturing the room in full 1080p resolution
    3. Wideband audio for clear sound from the room and to the room
    4. Table-top touch meeting console to enable the meeting controller to manage the meeting without distracting the other attendees

    It’s all brought together by the Lync Room System Edition software, which is a full Lync client optimized to bring the immersive meeting experience to a meeting room setting. It makes joining meetings as easy as on your PC and breaks down the barrier between in-room and remote attendees. Being able to see content and high definition video side by side makes remote collaboration more effective.

    For those of you who like a good book before bedtime, "Lync 2013 Unleashed" has been released and available through (by example) Amazon.com

    The book is written by Alex Lewis, Tom Pacyk, David Ross and Randy Wintle, well known names in the Lync Technical community.

    The abstract as on Amazon.com:

    The most comprehensive, realistic, and useful guide to Microsoft Lync Server 2013, today’s leading Unified Communications system.

    Four expert Lync consultants and implementers bring together in-the-trenches guidance for all facets of planning, integration, deployment, and administration. The authors introduce Microsoft Lync Server 2013, outline what it can do, and review the key improvements Microsoft has made in this version.

    They cover every form of communication Lync Server can manage, including IP voice, instant messaging, audio/video conferencing, web conferencing, and more. You’ll find expert guidance on planning infrastructure, managing day-to-day operations, server roles, multi-platform clients, security, troubleshooting, and much more.

    Microsoft Lync Server 2013 Unleashed contains a new section on Office 365 and Lync Online, a chapter covering coexistence between on-premise and Office 365 Lync deployments, and another introducing Lync online configuration and administration.

    Throughout, the authors combine theory, step-by-step configuration instructions, and best practices from real enterprise environments. They identify common mistakes and present proven solutions and workarounds. Simply put, they tell you what works--and show how it’s done.

    Detailed information on how to…
    • Plan for any type of deployment, from simple to highly complex--including virtualized environments
    • Walk step-by-step through installation, and understand important new changes in the installation process
    • Overcome obstacles to successful migration from older versions of Lync or Microsoft Office Communications Server
    • Manage server roles, including Front End, Edge, Monitoring, Archiving, and Director roles
    • Efficiently administer Lync Server 2013 through the Lync Server Management Shell
    • Leverage Lync Server 2013’s significantly improved capabilities as a PBX replacement and videoconferencing solution
    • Integrate Lync with third-party video platforms, voice/video gateways, and cloud services
    • Evaluate the option of providing Lync services through Microsoft Office 365 hosting
    • Make the most of Lync Server 2013’s dramatically upgraded web, mobile, and desktop clients

    When trying to Edit or Create a Persistent Chat Room in Lync  2013 you may encounter a problem opening the Persistent Chat Room management web site.

    Error : “Server Could not process your request. Please try again later”

    While this error does not give you a clear indication what is wrong we can check other things on the server.

    • Check the Persistent Chat Server state
    • Check the Application log for ASP.NET Errors
    • Use OCSLogger.exe and find problems related to Persistent Chat

    The state of the Persistent Chat service is normal

    RESOLUTION:

    While all of these logs and messages don’t say anything I decided to move my user which was currently hosted on the SBA in a branch office to the Front-End Server in the Datacenter and surprisingly this fixed the Persistent Chat Room website issues.
    So I guess this must still be a big in Lync 2013

    A Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that calculates WAN bandwidth requirements for a Lync Server deployment based on administrator-specified user profiles and network information, and a Word document user guide that accompanies the spreadsheet.

     

    The new version allows you to select what client is being used.  It looks like there is still a lot of work to do to include other clients (listed in yellow and crossed)

    I have added my Lync account to my favorites (I cannot find how to add lync accounts to the Skype mobile app but that probably requires the Desktop Client)

    I can see the presence clearly in front of the name but the name somehow gets truncated first + last name without any spaces.

    clip_image006

    I can check the profile where it says Messenger/Microsoft Account which is not correct, this must be Lync Contact

    clip_image008

    Chat Works as expected

    clip_image010

    clip_image001

    Calling from Lync to Skype on Windows Phone 8

    clip_image002

    Skype does not recognize the Lync sip address

    clip_image014

    But the call completes successfull

    clip_image016

    Dialing from the Skype mobile client on Windows Phone 8 works

    clip_image020

    clip_image004

    clip_image003

    Call completes successfull

    clip_image022

    Bring up the Chat and Profile tab works

    clip_image024clip_image026

    The recent call list shows the outgoing call correctly but the incomming call as Unknown Number

    clip_image028

    Skype has added a quite nice feature where users can give their feedback for the quality of a call.

    Now this would be so valuable during Lync Proof of Concepts, Pilots or even during full Lync deployments!

    While Lync has very good monitoring of Quality of Experience, it is still computer generated and misses some real human stuff, the quality feedback can add that missing piece of information.

    Lync Online and Lync Server both support connectivity with Skype. This connectivity allows Lync and Skype users to communicate with each other, add each other as contacts, and see each others' presence. This guide for Lync Online administrators and Lync Server Administrators describes how to enable connectivity between Lync and Skype users.

    2) Signaling

    If signaling is not working between Skype & Lync you probably need to update your EDGE Servers certificate for the GTE CyberTrust Global Root and the Baltimore CyberTrust Root

    Lync Server Federation with Microsoft.com: Root Certificate Change
    http://blogs.technet.com/b/nexthop/archive/2013/05/09/lync-server-federation-with-microsoft-com-root-certificate-change.aspx

    1) Media

    When you follow the Skype Provisioning Guide you have enabled federation between Skype & Lync but you have not configured the media (audio).  Lync & Skype will do the signaling fine but trying to accept the call then the media channel never establishes and you get an error. 
    If you never federated with MSN Messenger and you have to do configuration from scratch then you need to run an extra commandlet to enable media to work between Lync & Skype.

    The problem is that by default Lync Requires Encryption by default for all media calls en like “MSN”, Skype does not support encryption.
    To turn off the requirement for encryption you can do that with the following command:

    Set-CsMediaConfiguration -EncryptionLevel SupportEncryption

    Running this command does not disable encryption for Lync calls but when encryption is not available it will fall back to unencrypted media traffic like Skype calls  (Encryption is still used when both parties support encryption)
