Not all Communicator users can invite anonymous participants RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    After enabling some users for Unified Communications we have anabled most of the the functionalities for our Office Communicator test users  (federation, IM and enhanced presence). Users can always call each other internally using the SIP id's.


    In my case I am able to call every phone number. Even when I start a conference I can invite other people by entering external phone numbers ( I can enter a number in the invite box and click on OK to dail).


    But some users can not invite external callers. I'm not sure if I have enabled all functionalities but as far as I know the other users have the same rights as me.


    I was seeing that you can set allow "anonymous participents" in the global properties at forest level in the OCS mmc console. Every user should be allowed to invite anonymous participants. Why is it that some users can still not do this?


    Please advice.

  • In the communicator log I can find the following. How can I autorise this user?

  • The user that was not able to make external calls from the communicator can do it now. I was playing around with some setings in OCS but there is no clear solutions.


    We still have problems with other users. Some of them can still not make external calls (call phobe numbers from there communicator)?


    Is this a bug in the public beta of OCS?


    Has anyone else experienced this?


    I'm curious to know.
