I have a strange issue with Lync Contacts Search. When I am logged in to Lync externally , I can not find their contact even if I type their email or sip address. All users contacts appear properly in GAL. Your help is highly appreciated. I have a problem, where we had a demerger and one of the sip domain was remoeved.
All the users were deprovisioned from Lync and user objects are also removed from AD. When I do a search with any of the removed Domain users, I am still able to see. When I ran the command get-csuser, it says cannot be found, however when I do a test-csaddressbookwebquery, it is successful. My goal is to get those users removed from my lync search.
I feel that this could be due to Lync Contacts folder in exchange mailbox, but if this is true, then would i need to get all the users Lync Contacts folder purged? Do you mean the test-csaddressbookwebquery returns a successful result and the user can still be found?
If so, try using the update-csuserdatabase and after that has been successfully done run the update-csaddressbook cmdlet. Also those removed users need to be deleted from the Outlook contacts folder, as that folder will also be searched by the Lync client. Yes, the Test-csaddresswebquery shows success. I find that the Addressbook updates automatically every 2 hrs. Do you still recommend me to run the command? Yes, but note that the Update-CsUserDatabase is a different cmdlet.
This causes the database to re-read all the user-related information stored in Active Directory Domain Services.
