The global meeting join settings define the default meeting join experience at the forest level for your organization. You can use Lync Server Control Panel to make changes to these global settings.

For details about how to configure the meeting join experience at a site or pool level, see Create or Modify Meeting Join Settings for a Site or Pool.

To modify the default meeting join settings

  1. From a user account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group (or has equivalent user rights), or assigned to the CsServerAdministrator or CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer that is in the network in which you deployed Lync Server 2010.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Conferencing and then click Meeting Configuration.

  4. On the Meeting Configuration page, in the list of configuration settings, click Global, click Edit, and then click Show details.

  5. To route participants who dial in from the public switched telephone network (PSTN) through the lobby, clear the PSTN callers bypass lobby check box. By default, participants dialing in from the PSTN go directly to the meeting.

  6. To configure who can be a presenter in the meeting, in Designate as presenter, do one of the following:

    • To not allow anyone other than the organizer to be a presenter, click None.

    • To allow only participants who are members of your organization to be a presenter, click Company. This is the default setting.

    • To allow any participants to be a presenter, click Everyone.

  7. To have the organizer select a conference type when scheduling a meeting, clear the Assigned conference type by default check box. By default, the conference type is automatically assigned.

  8. To prevent anonymous (unauthenticated) users from being automatically admitted, clear the Admit anonymous users by default check box. By default, anonymous users are automatically admitted to meetings.

  9. Click Commit.
