I'm setting up Lync 2013 Standard Edition in my Lab and want to test it's features and its compatibility. I have managed to successfully install Lync 2013 Standard Edition, create some users and SIP enable them. I have setup Lync 2013 Clients (Domain-member PCs) to connect to server. They can IM each other fine.
I have also installed Lync Client on a non-domain computer, installed root CA certificate, DNS is good. I can log in to Lync, but I cannot search for any users by their first/last name.
"Address Book Synchronizing, Results may not be current"
I can only search the users by their SIP name. Whereas from domain-joined computer, I can search and find this user with first/last name just fine.
I would appreciate if you could shed some lights on where i'm doing something wrong. Thanks
A Lync client do not directly download the Adressbook. It can take some time until this happen. You can change the registry in order to do that:
reg add HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Lync /v GalDownloadInitialDelay /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
Microsoft has a wonderful TechNet documentation which explains that in more details.
