Office communicator not updating my status
Many other people have noted success in the comments. With Installer: CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD (374.91 k B) (12656 downloads so far) Without Installer: (Portable Edition) CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD (17.22 k B) (6992 downloads so far) Just run the installer and the program will be installed in the Start Menu (and Desktop if you want it there! A note on compatibility: It should run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. It’s been tested by me on Windows XP Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit).If you close Office Communicator without signing out Office Communicator will continue to run in the background (you can still receive instant messages and others can still view your presence status).To sign out you must use the menu in the Office Communicator title-bar.Also, your Lync status message is automatically set to whatever your Oo OA internal message is.
Lync client depend on the Exchange web services for the integration with Outlook and it will use the user’s SMTP domain to search for the DNS records for the Autodiscover and web services, so it will look for: https:///autodiscover/As well as your autodiscover SRV record (_autodiscover._tcp.smtpdomain) It is often that Lync client configuration status don’t shows the internal and external URL of the EWS and the EWS information shows “EWS Not Deployed”, and this causes some integration problems between Lync and Outlook like prompting for username and password, not populating your presence information from outlook calendar You can check the EWS status via registry key For Lync 2010 Client Locate HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Communicator\address\Autodiscovery For Lync 2013 Client Locate HKCU\Software\Microsoft\office.0\Lync\address\Autodiscovery Make sure the following enteris are correct External Availability Server Url Internal Availability Server Url External Ews Url Internal Ews Url External Oof Server Url Internal Oof Server Url If this key does not exist on your machine this mean Lync was unable to locate DNS records or SRV for the Autodisvoer services, so go ahead with checking your Exchange server side You will need to check 1.
This means you can still receive instant messages and others will be able to view your presence status (your status will not be ' Offline').
Select the Close button (right side of the Office Communicator title-bar).
The problem I had was that even when the end time had passed and Outlook’s feature had been turned off automatically, Lync’s feature remained on.
Even changing the status message in Lync manually did not work; it was immediately reset to the one set up in Outlook.
