Troubleshooting Devices

Microsoft Lync Server 2010 provides new and updated tools for monitoring devices and troubleshooting device issues. For an overview, see Tools and Services for Managing and Troubleshooting Devices. Before you use troubleshooting tools, if you are deploying IP phones, it is important to understand devices connect to your network. For an overview see, How IP Phones Connect to the Network.
