Before you configure the Lync Server Sync tool, you must install the required files on the identity life cycle manager server. The files required for the Lync Server Sync tool are included in the Lcssync directory of the Lync Server 2010 Resource Kit.

    For Forefront Identity Manager, the folder will be located at: %Program Files%\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Synchronization Service\Extensions

  4. Go to the Extensions folder, and then open Lcscfg.xml.

    <lcsma name="Lcs Central Forest">

    <target-ou>OU=contacts,DC= yourdomain ,DC=com</target-ou>



    </rules-extension-properties><target-ou>path to contact organizational unit</target OU>
