About this guide

This guide provides an overview of Lync Connector and its requirements, and includes full instructions on how to install, configure, and use Lync Connector to archive Lync Server instant message transcripts to Enterprise

About Lync Connector

Veritas Enterprise™ Lync Connector is an application that archives the transcripts of on-premises Microsoft Lync Server and Skype for Business Server instant messages and conferences to Enterprise

Lync Connector requires a Lync Server or Skype for Business Server configuration that archives the conversation transcripts to a Lync Server - or Skype for Business Server - archiving database. For simplicity this database is referred to throughout this guide as the Lync archiving database.

Lync Connector performs scheduled synchronizations between the Lync archiving database and Enterprise, typically every hour. In each synchronization Lync Connector extracts the conversation transcripts from the database in email format, and after validation and processing it forwards the transcripts to Enterprise using SMTP.

Lync Connector includes a console interface through which you can configure, manage, and monitor the Lync Connector synchronizations.

Lync Connector does not provision Enterprise archive accounts. Lync content is archived to users' archives only if the archive accounts already exist in Enterprise You must use another solution such as CloudLink to provision archive accounts.

  • Instant messages

  • Conferences, including attachments such as handouts, whiteboards, and polls

Lync Connector does not currently support the archiving of the following Lync content:
