Microsoft has released a ressource kit tool for Lync Server 2010.

It provides a Web-based alternative to the add-in for the Microsoft Office Outlook messaging and collaboration client for the purpose of scheduling a meeting using Lync Server 2010. It also provides a browser-based conference management experience that includes operations such as the following:

  • Scheduling a new online Lync meeting.
  • Listing all existing Lync Server 2010 meetings that the user has organized.
  • Viewing and modifying details of an existing meeting.
  • Deleting an existing meeting.
  • Sending an email invitation to meeting participants by using a configured SMTP mail server.
  • Joining an existing conference.

Compared to the Conferencing Add-In for Microsoft Outlook, Lync Web Scheduler has the following limitations:

  • Lync Web Scheduler does not support scheduling recurring meetings.
  • Lync Web Scheduler lists only meetings that were organized by the user. It does not list all meetings that the user is invited to. Further, meetings created using some other tool will not be editable using Lync Web Scheduler.
  • Lync Web Scheduler is available only in English.
  • Meeting invitations that are generated by Lync Web Scheduler do not look exactly the same as those that are generated by the Conferencing Add-In for Outlook.
  • Lync Web Scheduler doesn’t interact with the calendaring server. Calendar updates happen only via email invitations.
  
You should install it on all the frontend servers and director servers that the users access.

You can use the new addin by using the following url : https:///scheduler or https:///scheduler

Don’t use the server names, as you will get a blank page.

Also see the readme files for the installation and configuration – it straight forward and easy to install.

Installation instructions and download can be found here

Microsoft has released a new cumulative update for Lync Server 2010.

A great news is that the Serverupdateinstallerfile is back as you may know from OCS, but you also have the possibility to download each component update separately.

A new feature in the Lync client, is the ability to see the configuration of the client, in almost the same way, as it is known from the Outlook client.

To see the Lync Client Information do the following: 
Hold the CTRL key and right click the Lync icon in the left corner.

Then select “Configuration Information” from the menu.

It’s  very useful troubleshooting tool.
