Normally it will happen if the user already tried for enabling Lync and stopped in middle. To resolve this issue,Login in to Domain Controller and remove all the attributes of Lync which are got assigned last time.


You can use clear option to set it to default.



Then leave it for AD SYNC across all domain controllers and try to enable the user for Lync. Now you can notice that you’re able to enable Lync access for that User ID

  1. Good One Radha, but I feel tweaking with AD Attributes would not be wise option as we can re-provision the same from LYNC Server considering the risk factor from other AD attributes… 🙂 What you say hero… 🙂
