Migrate users from Lync 2013 to Skype for Business Online (SFBO)?

Frequent Contributor

Hello All,

Count me, first timer to perform migration of resources from Lync 2013 to Skype for Business Online.

Looking for valuable assistance to understand what are the checks to be performed.


Current Environment:

LYNC 2013

- No Enterprise Voice


- No Lync Edge Server

- Using it for LYNC based Chat and Screen Sharing service.



- Migrate the user`s LYNC contact list and LYNC groups (favorites, others)


Research performed so far:

a) Can perform the migration with the requirements without Lync Edge server.

b) For stage migration (few users part of Pilot group are migrated first) and later migrate most of the users) cannot be performed without LYNC Edge server.

c) Only LYNC contacts, groups can be migrated.

d) AD SYNC should be in place and replicating



Any pointer will be of great assistance.
