How can I configure the Administrative Portal to get a Teams Chat/IM client get to a Skype for Business client?
I have a test group that cannot send IM messages to Skype for Business.
I am currently setup in Islands Mode.

@David Kampif you are using Island Mode a chat initiated in Teams will land in Team and a chat initiated in SFB will land in SFB.
If you want a Teams Chat to Land on to sfb, you need to ensure that the SFB users TeamsUpgradePolicy is set to SfBOnly or SfBOnlyWithNotify.
Through the portal you can only configure Org wide settings. To configure for individual users you will have to do it via powershell
Down load Skype for Business PS - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=39366
In Powershell create a connection
$userCredential = Get-Credential
$sfbSession = New-CsOnlineSession -Credential $userCredential
Grant-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy -Identity user1@yourTennantDomain.com -PolicyName SfBOnlyWithNotify

@Maruthi Gadde This sounds like a lot of administration to perform.
It sounds like if I want to slowly roll our users to Teams I must Manually touch each of our accounts two times. Once so that migrated Teams Clients can continue IM'ing with SFB and again after they are put onto Teams to put them in Teams mode. We have almost 4000 accounts.
It would appear our Clients will need to Keep both applications open during a transition period.

@David Kamp Have you considered changing your org-wide setting to Skype for Business? That way, you only need to touch each account once to move it to Teams Only mode. If you do this, users wouldn't have to keep both applications open (indeed, they would only be able to sign in to Skype for Business or Teams, depending on whether they were in SfB or Teams mode). If you have any users who specifically need to be able to be signed in to both applications at once, you could put them into Islands mode individually.

If I put the Org-Wide setting to SFb then an IM from Teams to Sfb would work?
and an IM from Sfb to Teams would also work.
Assuming the End user only logs into their client of choice (which hopefully would be Teams).
And after getting everyone On Teams make the Org-wide setting Teams Only mode.
Does this sound like it would work or am I missing a potential step?
