Communicator contacts not updating

Add new contact photos to Active Directory users whatever way you prefer (several management tools exist). The Active Directory sync is working…just not for images? There’s a lot of parts to the Lync contact profile – and by the time we were done, we’d touched all of them.) Next post I’ll detail 3 more fixes we tried.

Once the photos are in place for Active Directory users, they will synchronize with Lync like I described above. The Set-Cs Client Policy cmdlet has an option, “-Display Photo” which controls the default photo display options. This requires Lync to use Active Directory’s stored image for its contact photo. Two had no effect on synchronizing the address book…but one did.

Multip Microsoft Office Communicator and Microsoft Office Outlook are key parts of the Microsoft Office suite on corporate networks.

All of these contacts have numbers and email addresses.You can also use it to write notes, keep a journal and for web browsing.You should be able to use Outlook to indicate your availability or otherwise and share this information with Office Communicator. Then some users put their own contact photos into their Lync profiles. Lync’s contact profiles get a lot of their data from Active Directory.Option #3 is what people use to set their own photo. It will be populated by Active Directory once we’re done updating. (Turns out we had to go through a lot of back-and-forth repair attempts on this one, before it all worked out.Microsoft Office Communicator and Microsoft Office Outlook are key parts of the Microsoft Office suite on corporate networks.When Communicator does not synchronise correctly with Outlook, it can cause problems with an individual’s scheduling. We recently had this happen to a recent client’s Lync Server. For example, a user’s work phone number is changed in AD. (This service is called the User Replicator Configuration. Management wanted to standardize all of the photos, so every customer saw the person they were working with. Changes to AD are replicated to the back-end SQL Server used by Lync.(Remember, contact photos must be less than 100kb in order for Lync 2010 to use them.) But we’re not quite done here. The cmdlet is structured like so: Then, run the cmdlet Update-Cs Address Book. Have you encountered an Address Book synchronization error? If some users have set Option #3 in Lync, we’ll have to change them to #2. This runs a synchronization from the Lync SQL database into your Lync clients.
