  • Question

  •  

    If the new Communicator 2007 ADM file is pushed as a global policy and points to the new OCS 2007 Pool, how will the coexisting Communicator 2005 clients connect to the LCS Server? What is the best way to implement the new Communicator 2007 global policy without causing problems for our Communicator 2005/LCS users during migration?

  • As Mike says, you can deploy policies for MOC 2005 independently from policies for OCS 2007. See the Communicator white papers (for 2005 and 2005) for more details.

    In our Communicator 2005 Group Policy the "Specify Transport and Server" was enabled and specified the one LCS server in the original setup. From the documentation, this setting can be disabled to allow the client to use DNS to locate the LCS 2005 server.

     

    My Questions:

        If we push the Communicator 2007 Group Policy and change the "Specify Transport and Server" to Disable, will this allow our Communicator 2005 user to locate the LCS 2005 server through DNS and our Communicator 2007 user to locate the OCS 2007 pool throught DNS? Thus both clients coexisting.

     

    Also, we should be able to test the current Communicator 2005 setup by disabling the "Specify Transport and Server" in the current Communicator 2005 Group Policy to see if the clients find the LCS server?

     

    Should this set the Client to "Automatic Configuration"?

     

    Thanks
