First steps before you start migrating users from Lync Online to Lync on-premises in Lync Server 2013


Topic Last Modified: 2014-05-08

Before you start moving Lync Online users to your on-premises environment, check that all of the following are true:

  • Your Lync Server on-premises environment must be fully deployed and validated. For more information, see Deploying Lync Server 2013.

  • Your Lync Online tenant must be configured for remote PowerShell Access.

    To do this, first install the Lync Online module for Windows PowerShell, which you can get here:

    After you install the module, you can establish a remote session by typing the following cmdlets in the Lync Server Management Shell:

     Import-Module LyncOnlineConnector
     $cred = Get-Credential
     $CSSession = New-CsOnlineSession -Credential $cred
     Import-PSSession $CSSession -AllowClobber

    For more information about how to establish a remote PowerShell session with Lync Online, see Connecting to Lync Online by using Windows PowerShell.

  • Your Lync Online must be configured for Shared SIP Address Space. To do this, first start a remote Powershell session with Lync Online. Then run the following cmdlet:

    Set-CsTenantFederationConfiguration -SharedSipAddressSpace $True
