When setting up IP phones, personal identification number (PIN) authentication needs to be enabled on Microsoft Lync Server 2010 communications software, and an appropriate PIN policy need to be in place. This allows authentication to be automatic when a user signs in to the phone. Authentication is the process of validating user credentials.
To check to see if PIN authentication is enabled, in the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Control Panel, click the Security group, and then click Web Service. There will be a mark next to PIN authentication if it is enabled. You can edit the PIN policy in the Security group, by clicking PIN Policy.
You can also use Lync Server Management Shell to enable PIN authentication. Run:
Set-CsWebServiceConfiguration -Identity Global -UsePinAuth $true
And you can use Lync Server Management Shell to check whether PIN authentication is enabled. Run:
Get-CsWebServiceConfiguration | Select UsePinAuth
