Well i’ve been at it a couple of hours now and i’ve gotta say that Lync 2010 is WAY easier to install and setup compared with Office Communications Server 2007. Loving the new topology tool and the migration of users from one to another is seamless.
The new control panel is awesome too, no longer do you need to use the manager and AD to get users into Lync and as an added benefit the management interface is all Silverlight and follows a similar model to Exchange where there are lots of uses of policy’s which can be moved up and down similar to exchange policy’s
Microsoft.. Huge thumbs up!!!
