Decommissioning the on-premise Lync server

Steel Contributor

Hi all

 

So I finished migrating all my on-premise Lync Server 2013 to Skype for Business Online and then switched them to Teams only.

 

How do I go about decommissioning / uninstalling the on-premise Lynce Server 2013??

 

I can't seem to find any documentation anywhere on the WWW.

Hi @RealTime_M365 

 

Thank you for the link. You are awesome!!

 

@RealTime_M365 Hi Satish.

 

Hope you well. Quick one.

 

So I ran all the steps in this guide:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/archive/blogs/fasttracktips/decommissioning-skypelync-on-premises

 

After running all these steps do I just remove the server from the domain and that's it?

Hi @Navishkar Sadheo 

 

That's Correct. Now you can remove the servers.

@RealTime_M365  Hi

 

If I read this KB Microsoft says "....Do not run Disable-CsUser in the on-premises environment..." and "....Clearing the on-premises msRTCSIP attributes after you have migrated from on-premises could result in loss of service for users!"

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/hybrid/cloud-consolidation-disabling-hybrid

 

I have always run disable-csuser and checked in legacy portal that users turn into in cloud users and never had any issues.

Feels strange that old users in on-prem has these attributes defined but new users probably not will have any of these attributes set..
