Script: Compare Lync Policies

Just a Lync Guy

With the help of @y0avb and some guidance from a PowerShell MVP colleague, we wrote a script that will compare two Lync users to find the differences in settings between the users based on their assigned policies.

This script should enable Lync Admins to save time in troubleshooting scenarios where user A is capable of certain functionalities that user B is not capable of, and in order to verify the reason for it we are required to compare policies and differences, this is usually done manually, using the Lync Control Panel which is less convenient and more time demanding.

Currently the script compares the following policies:

  • Client Policy
  • Conference Policy
  • Hosted Voice Mail Policy
  • Mobility Policy
  • Dial Plan
  • Voice Policy

This script will outputs the following:

The script can be download here.

Please share you suggestions and feedback for the script.

This is done by implementing ad fs.
On top, you need to have an active “DirSync”, syncing your AD to the cloud.

To create the hybrid set-up with an on-premise Lync environment, and the “in the cloud”-office365 one, you’ll need the latest iteration of the Lync server software: version 2013.
So, we added the Lync 2013 servers to our 2010 deployment. And after some little hassles, everything started to work. (Single IP deployment, you can google around how to set it up)

You need a lync2013 edge and front-end, because…
