After you migrate users to Microsoft Lync Server 2010, do the following:

  1. Use the Client Version Filter on the new Lync Server 2010 server to allow only clients with the most current updates installed to sign in.

  2. If necessary, configure the Group Policy settings that are required for client bootstrapping. For details, see Key Client Policies and Settings in the Planning documentation. Configuration of these settings is only necessary if you want to change existing client bootstrapping policies or if you want to set new client bootstrapping policies. If you do not plan to configure client bootstrapping policies, or you want legacy client bootstrapping policies to remain in effect, no action is necessary.

  3. Configure other user and client policies for specific users or groups of users by using Lync Server Control Panel, Lync Server Management Shell, or both. For details, see Key Client Policies and Settings and Migrating User Settings to Lync Server 2010 in the Planning documentation.

  4. Deploy the latest version of Lync Server 2010 clients along with the latest cumulative updates. For details, see Deploying Clients and Devices in the Deployment documentation.

  5. (Optional) If your organization requires Microsoft Lync 2010 enhanced presence privacy mode, after migration is complete, define a Client Version Policy Rule to prevent earlier client versions from signing in. Then, enable enhanced presence privacy mode.

    Do not enable Lync 2010 enhanced presence privacy mode until every user on a given server pool has the most current client versions installed.
  6. (Optional) If you use remote call control, create a group policy to set the Enable integration with your phone system option in the Phone integration section in Microsoft Lync 2010.
