Skype for Business Server 2015
 

Topic Last Modified: 2016-03-07

Summary: Review this topic while planning to integrate Skype for Business Server 2015 with Exchange 2013.

Unified contact store provides a consistent contact experience across Microsoft Office products, and enables users to store all contact information in Exchange 2013 but allows the information to be available globally across Skype for Business, Exchange, Outlook, and Outlook Web Access.

To implement unified contact store in Skype for Business Server 2015:

  • You must be running Skype for Business Server 2015 and Exchange 2013.

  • Users must use Skype for Business to migrate their contacts from Skype for Business Server 2015 to Exchange 2013.

  • User mailboxes must be migrated to Exchange 2013.

  • You must have server-to-server authentication configured between Skype for Business Server 2015 and Exchange 2013.

    noteNote:
    For detailed requirements about setting up authentication between Skype for Business Server 2015 and Exchange 2013, see Manage server-to-server authentication (OAuth) and partner applications in Skype for Business Server 2015 in the Operations documentation.
