IM and Presence Service Integration with Interdomain Federation Capability of Microsoft Servers
You can integrate IM and Presence Service with the interdomain federation capability of Microsoft servers.
Microsoft servers support interdomain federation with remote enterprises or public IM providers. This interdomain federation capability is still available to Microsoft Lync or Microsoft Office Communicator users when partitioned intradomain federation is configured between the Microsoft server and IM and Presence Service.
Furthermore, you can configure IM and Presence Service so that users who migrate to an IM and Presence Service supported client can still use the interdomain federation capability that is configured on the Microsoft server.
For information about configuring interdomain federation on IM and Presence Service, see Interdomain Federation for IM and Presence Service on Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Interactions and Restrictions
- Do not use email for federation when you have an integrated interdomain and partitioned intradomain federation deployment. Email address for federation is not supported in deployments where partitioned intradomain federation is configured. Email address for federation is also not supported for interdomain federation if your deployment uses the interdomain federation capabilities of Skype for Business/Lync/OCS. Confirm that email address for federation is not enabled anywhere in the deployment in these deployment scenarios.
When partitioned intradomain federation with the Microsoft server is enabled, it is also possible to configure both SIP-based and XMPP-based interdomain federation to remote domains on IM and Presence Service. However, this federation capability is available to users on IM and Presence Service supported clients only.
