If your Office Communications Server 2007 R2 deployment supports dial-in conferencing, you must perform the procedure described in this section to move your conference directories to Lync Server 2010 before beginning to decommission your legacy pools. If you decommission a pool without first moving the conference directories to Lync Server 2010, the dial-in feature for all migrated meetings will no longer work. The following procedure describes how to move a conference directory from one pool to another pool.

If you decommission your legacy pools before you move the conference directories, you must either restore the conference directories from a backup, or users must manually reschedule their meetings to restore dial-in functionality. If you used Dbimpexp.exe to export the legacy conference directories, you can create new conference directories on Lync Server 2010 by using the same numeric identifiers that existed in your legacy pool, and then use Dbimpexp.exe to import the data to Lync Server 2010. If you do not have a backup created with Dbimpexp.exe, users must reschedule all of their dial-in meetings, and you can use the Remove-CsConferenceDirectory cmdlet with the Force parameter to clean up any leftover entries in Lync Server.

Before decommissioning a pool, you need to perform the following procedure for each conference directory in your Office Communications Server 2007 R2 pool.

To move a conference directory to Lync Server 2010

  1. Log on to the computer where Lync Server Management Shell is installed as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group or with the necessary user rights as described in Delegate Setup Permissions.

  2. Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Management Shell.

  3. To obtain the identity of the conference directories in your organization, run the following:

    Copy Code

    Because this cmdlet returns all the conference directories in your organization, you may want to limit the results to only the pool you want to decommission. For example, if you want to decommission a pool with the fully qualified domain name (FQDN)

    Copy Code
    Get-CsConferenceDirectory | Where-Object {$_.ServiceID -match ""}

    This cmdlet returns all the conference directories where service ID contains the FQDN

  4. To move conference directories, run the following for each conference directory in the pool:

    Copy Code
    Move-CsConferenceDirectory -Identity <Numeric identity of conference directory> -TargetPool <FQDN of pool where ownership is to be transitioned>

    For example:

    Copy Code
    Move-CsConferenceDirectory -Identity 3 -TargetPool
