Video Demonstration of a Lync On-Premises to Office 365 User Migration

January 30th, 2015 | Tags: , ,

I thought I’d share a video I was asked to put together that illustrated Lync client behavior when a user is migrated from a Lync On-Premises deployment to Lync Online.

Prior to executing the PowerShell below I needed to complete a “Split-Domain” Lync deployment which I covered in a separate article here.

PowerShell commands:

$creds=Get-Credential | Input tenant admin credentials
Move-CsUser -Identity <SIP URI> -Target sipfed.online.lync.com -Credential $creds -HostedMigrationOverrideUrl https://admin0a.online.lync.com/HostedMigration/hostedmigrationservice.svc | see my previous article for tenant specific URL identification
Get-CsUser -Identity <SIP URI> | Validate user migration
Move-CsUser -Identity <SIP URI> -Target <On-Premises Lync Pool Name> -Credential $cred -HostedMigrationOverrideURL https://admin0a.online.lync.com/HostedMigration/hostedmigrationservice.svc | see my previous article for tenant specific URL identification
