Deploying one or more per-user hosted voice mail policies is optional. If you do deploy per-user policies, you must explicitly assign them to users, groups, or contact objects.

For details about assigning or removing the assignment of per-user hosted voice mail policies, see the Lync Server Management Shell documentation for the following cmdlets:

To assign a per-user hosted voice mail policy

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

  2. Run the Grant-CsHostedVoicemailPolicy cmdlet to assign the per-user hosted voice mail policy to individual users, groups, and contact objects. For example, run:

    Copy Code
    Grant-CsHostedVoicemailPolicy -Identity "Ken Myer" -PolicyName ExRedmond

    This example assigned the ExRedmond hosted voice mail policy to user Ken Myer.

    Identity specifies the user account to be modified. The Identity value can be specified using any of the following formats:

    • The user's SIP address

    • The user's Active Directory User-Principal-Name

    • The user's domain\logon name (for example, contoso\kenmyer)

    • The user's Active Directory Domain Services Display-Name (for example, Ken Myer). If using the Display-Name as the Identity value, you can use the asterisk (*) wildcard character. For example, the Identity "* Smith" returns all the users who have a Display-Name that ends with the string value "Smith".

    The user’s Active Directory SAM-Account-Name cannot be used as the Identity value because the SAM-Account-Name is not necessarily unique in the forest.
