Lync 2010 and SKYPE Federation

Normaly when you have got the feedback from Microsoft that you are ready for Lync and SKYPE Federation.
Well be aware of the following.

  1. Navigate to your front end server
  2. Open up the Lync 2010/2013 Management Shell
  3. Execute the following command to list what providers you federate to
    1. Get-CsPublicProvider
  4. If you have a provider that has a ProxyFqdn of federation.messenger.msn.com, execute the following command to remove it (replacing MSN with the Identity that had federation.messenger.msn.com for your environment):
    1. Remove-CsPublicProvider -Identity MSN
  5. Execute the following command to add Skype as a federated provider
    1. New-CsPublicProvider -Identity Skype -ProxyFqdn federation.messenger.msn.com -IconUrl “https://images.edge.messenger.live.com/Messenger_16x16.png” -VerificationLevel 2 -Enabled 1
  6. Close your Lync client and reopen for the option to be available
The IconUrl parameter is NOT a part of the Lync 2010 Powershell.
The command will look like this

New-CsPublicProvider -Identity Skype -ProxyFqdn federation.messenger.msn.com -VerificationLevel 2 -Enabled 1
