Create Lync UM Contact Objects Automatically

0
2515

In order for Lync to be able to route calls to Exchange Unified Messaging, contact objects need to be created using the Exchange UM Integration Utility (OcsUmUtil.exe). I have always thought this process is rather clunky and wanted to make the process easier, enter Create-LyncUMContactObjects.

How does it work?
The script queries Exchange for existing Auto-Attendant and Dial Plan pilot numbers. It then searches Active Directory for objects that have a matching Line URI (msRTCSIP-Line). If a match is not found, the contact object will be created.

Instructions

  1. Download Create-LyncUMContactObjects.ps1 from here
  2. Review prerequisites and usage examples below
  3. Run the script
  4. After the script has run you can check OcsUmUtil.exe to make sure the contacts have been created successfully or just run live test

Usage

Parameters
