We are starting to put the finishing touches on our Lync server roll out and a few of our IT staff have been manually migrated over. Things are going well.
We've started to think about migrating our users. Roughly 200+ users and clients.
Everyone is currently using OCS 2007 (not R2) and connecting to that server pool with the older OCS client.
I'd like to make the end user transition as seamless as possible but we've sort of ran in to a Catch-22.
If I move the users on the back end the older client won't log in to the new server.
If I roll out the new client first, the new client won't log in to OCS 2007. I would hate to think that the two events have to be timed simultaneously.
We don't use OCS for anything else other than instant messaging and maybe the occasional desktop sharing. So maintaining the IM capability is my primary concern. I can live without desktop sharing till we've fully migrated.
