    • Error was resolved by not running PS as administrator

    • Hi, is this possible to restore the backup taken from an On-premise Lync 2013 environment into SfB online ?
    • Was able to migrate. Many Thanks.

    • Thanks so much for Working great adding users. When we help a staff member add some sensible contacts by hand, we often show them how to add a distribution group (or mail enabled security group), like the one for their team or site. Adding the distro list means they have a continually updated list of who's in their team, always there in Skype.
      Is there anything I can put in the CSV to tell the script that the SIP/email address is for a distro list that I want to add as a group, rather than trying to add it as a contact? Doing it through the GUI I just type the email address for the group into the search field, right click on the group name and click "Add to Contacts List".
