Lync Answers MMUC–Lync #Lync

I got some questions this week that I didn’t have a direct answer to, and this post will be updated with the questions and answers as I find them.

Some of the questions were so good that they also deserved a dedicated post further on.

Q A
Does Lync RBAC work with nested groups? When you have a universal security group, which is a member of another universal security group (the so-called nesting of groups), a user who’s a member of group 1, that belongs to group 2, will get the role assigned to both groups!

What’s the Reach application role?

Reach Application Sharing – As the name implies,this role handles sharing of applications between users while chatting or conferencing. Information was hard to find, but I presume the ‘reach’ means this role also allows application sharing with third parties not using Lync.

When and why do I need a director server?

CMS Replication, when, why and how.

On the replica the Lync Server 2010 services (consumers) have registered for changes to the different types of XML documents in the replica. They will poll the local replica each 60 seconds to discover any changes to the XML document(s) they are interested in.

The two 60 second intervals means that it can take around 2 minutes from changes to be visible to the consumers (60 seconds poll on master + replication delay + 60 seconds poll on replica

CMS replication are explained in great detail in this teched session
