Lync 2010 Client Group Policy Documentation

Good morning,


Microsoft has just released the Lync 2010 Client Group Policy Documentation to the Microsoft Download Center.


Here are the details :


Overview :

System administrators can provide the appropriate registry settings for Microsoft Lync 2010 clients by using an administrative template (.adm) file to define Group Policy settings. Administrative template files contain specific information about which Group Policy settings the application implements, where settings are stored, and how to configure settings.


This download package contains the Lync 2010 administrative template file (Communicator.adm) and spreadsheet that documents the Group Policy settings for Lync 2010 clients.
