Lync PoC to Skype for Business Pilot Migration March 16, 2017 17:00 – 21:00 PT

Approximately 100 UBC IT users on the old Lync Proof-of-Concept service will be migrated to the new Skype for Business Pilot service. These users’ primary email address will be updated to use fn.ln@ubc.ca to align it with the new SIP address.

Affected users will need to sign in using their fn.ln@ubc.ca as the Sign-in Address instead of their cwl@lync.uc.it.ubc.ca address. In addition, these users will need to re-send any Skype meetings as the meeting URL will have changed due to the change in Sign-in Address.

Those using the UBC Mailing List service will also need to start logging into that service using their firstname.lastname@ubc.ca email address as a result of the Email address update.
