Lync Web App is a new Silverlight based web browser client that allows participants to join meetings hosted on Microsoft Lync Server 2010. It is primarily used by users that do not have Lync 2010 installed.
A user initiates the meeting join process by clicking the Join Online Meeting link in the meeting invite or calendar item, clicking the Join Online button in the Microsoft Outlook reminder window or by copying the meeting URL into the browser and activating it. The meeting URL is based on SimpleUrl defined on the sever and could be on the form https://meet.inframss.dk/tu27/7Q3DSSYV, where meet.inframss.dk is the SimpleUrl, inframss.dk is the SIP domain, tu27 is the organizer and 7Q3DSSYV is the meeting id.
When the meeting URL has been activated the Lync Server runs the join launcher. The main steps performed by the join launcher are:
As can be seen from above it is not possible to use Lync Web App, if you already have one of the other clients installed. Fear not – there is a trick If you append ?sl= to the meeting URL, i.e. like https://meet.inframss.dk/tu27/7Q3DSSYV?sl=, the join launcher will launch the above web page and enable you to select Lync Web App no matter which clients you have installed.

Jens>Hi Serkan, I quickly tried to repro it in my lab, but it worked for me. My recommendation is for you to open a support incident with Microsoft Support.
how if I deploy the LWA in the multi site?
how to point the meet.domain.com to FE server in different site?

How can these be prevented? This is a flaw. We dont want our customers to be able to do this.
