Lync/Skype for Business requirements

The GTm supports:

  • Lync 2010 Server, Lync 2013 Server, Skype for Business 2015 Server
    Note: If the deployment is not a Lync 2013 server, ensure that the Lync 2013 user interface is enabled.
  • Skype for Business Online

The GTm needs:

  • A user or room system account with Lync/Skype for Business enabled
  • For on-prem deployments: if the Lync/Skype for Business server certificates were issued by a private certificate authority, the GTm requires the certificate of the Root Certificate Authority and any intermediate certificates. Microsoft has documented how to export Root Certification Authority Certificates

Exchange requirements

The GTm supports:

  • Exchange 2010 SP2 Server
  • Exchange 2013 Server
  • Exchange Online

The GTm needs:

  • A user account or room resource with Calendar enabled and linked to a Skype for Business enabled account. Auto-responding to invitations is not required but supported

Conference invite emails to the GTm must remain intact with necessary attachments in order for conferencing facilities to function correctly. Be aware that stripping attachments from emails causes the Join Now button to stop working. Auto-responding to invitations can cause attachments to be deleted and you must configure it not to do so.

If you are using a room resource and would like to show the meeting title correctly on the GTm, refer to this Microsoft article .
