The -Force is weak with this one Lync 2010 CsUser Migration to 2013

Hello Readers,

Here’s an issue I come across today after users was migrated from Lync 2010 to Lync 2013. The naughty -force command was in the script that was used to do the job and it moved all conferencing data but left behind everyone contacts. It didn’t affect everyone on site only a select few but not to fear the fix resolution is here.

  • Open Lync Manangement Shell on New FE
  • Move-CsUser -Identity “Joe Bloggs”  -Target “OldFE.domain.local” -Force
  • Once user has moved over and they have their contacts back
  • Move-CsUser -Identity “Joe Bloggs”  -Target “NewFE.domain.local”

Ands bobs your uncle, user will be on the new pool with their Lync Contacts intact.
