Question

Is it possible to provide users with an Address List in Lync that only contains a subset of users in a Lync organization?

Answer

Yes

How?

Using an attribute called msRTCSIP-GroupingID, as described in this TechNet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg429725.aspx

Time to test Smile

I’m gonna use the objectGUID of an Organizational Unit called Zaventem, that I have in my demo environment

IVC-0507

Then I’m going to change the value of the msRTCSIPGroupingID for a user in that OU to that objectGUID, in this example Annelies Bulkens:

IVC-0588

And I’m doing the same thing for a Lync-enabled user in a different OU, namely DemoTechEd:

IVC-0589

Time to check Smile When I log in as my own demo account, I get the following results when entering d:

IVC-0587

I don’t see DemoTechEd!

When Annelies does the same thing, she only gets DemoTechEd:

IVC-0583

It is still possible for Annelies to add a user as a contact when entering the correct SIP-Uri, as you can see below for user2@lync.local:

IVC-0584

IVC-0585

IVC-0586

  • Is there a 3rd party product that goes beyond what technet.microsoft.com/.../gg429725.aspx & msRTCSIP-GroupingID  provides for Lync 2010 which would prevent them from using email contact information or manual entry of contact or phone number information. Please let me know at Lowell.Livingston@acgov.org or lowelllivingston@hotmail.com - Thanks!

  • This attribute can also be set on Distribution lists to include them in the lookups.
    Also, don't forget the Update-CsAddressBook command to speed up the process, and forcing the client address book to update for testing using the method here: http://windowsitpro.com/lync/q-how-can-i-force-my-lync-clients-update-their-address-book.
