Presented by Cezar Ungureanasu, Ramesh Narayanan and Vivek Bhatnagar.
Hybrid = a combination of components on premises and online.
Development in cloud is iterating faser than the on premises versions (and Skype for business have already evolved since this presentation were held. Maybe most notably by the addition of the Skype for Business Cloud Connector Edition.This presentaiton ended with som early thinking aronud this new feature and some questions around it.)
Requirements to start up a hybrid
- Skype for business on premises with Edge and federation with Office 365
- Office 365 tenant (Skype for business online licenses) with
federation and shared SIP address space configured
- Directory Synchronization
- User authentication (ADFS, AD Sync)
Even Lync 2010 and Lync 2013 would work, in Skype for business some administrative GUIs for configuring and moving users have been added.
Also the Allowed / Blocked domains list in the on-premises deployment must exactly match the Allowed domains list for your online tenant.
The "Hosting Provider" is an important active directory attribute, it tells the system where the user is homed.
For an On-premises user
RegistrarPool : pool01.kressmark.com
HostingProvider : SRV:
SRV: means - use DNS to find this users pool.
For an Online user
RegistrarPool : <empty> (but in the "Office 365 version / side" of the AD, this attribute will hold the name of the online "pool".)
HostingProvider : sipfed.online.lync.com
The "Hosting Provider" attribute will also be used when routing incoming Instant Messages and / or presence.
The presentation also included a demo of a user being moved, and the meeting invite link in his Outlook calender were uppdated.
