You can use Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat Admin Tool to create categories and chat rooms, define their scope and membership, create federated users and groups, manage how users can use the chat rooms, and specify which users are administrators.
Group Chat Admin Tool can be installed and run from any computer on the network. Unlike the Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat Configuration tool, it does not have to be installed on the computer running Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat. The Group Chat Configuration tool is installed side-by-side with the computer running Lync Server 2010, Group Chat and can be run only from that server.
Use of Group Chat Admin Tool is limited to users who have been granted chat room administrator rights and permissions. When you install Group Chat Server, you specify one or more users as super users on the system. These users have chat room administrator rights and permissions. If other users require these administrator rights and permissions, a chat room administrator must connect to Group Chat Admin Tool and then assign them. For details about managing user rights and permissions in Group Chat, see Managing Group Chat User Access.
