How to configure Lync Resource Kit for call forwarding

Question: How to configure Lync Resource Kit for call forwarding?

Answer:

To support call forwarding, you need to install Microsoft Lync Server Resource Kit.

  1. Install Microsoft Lync Resource Kit on default path.

  2. Create new Trusted Application pool in Lync Server (or you can use existing)
    New-CsTrustedApplicationPool -Identity lync2013.devlab01.com -Registrar lync2013.devlab01.com  -Site Site:LAbsite1
            E
    nable-CsTopology

  3. Add SEFAUtil in Trusted Application Pool
    New-CsTrustedApplication -ApplicationId sefautil -TrustedApplicationPoolFqdn lync2013.devlab01.com  -Port 7489
    Enable-CsTopology

  4. Verify the SEFAUtil is running correctly. To do this, run the SEFAUtil.exe from a windows command prompt (cmd) with administrator privileges to display the call forwarding settings of a user in the deployment.
    By default the tool will be located in: “…\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2013\Reskit”.

            To display the call forwarding settings of a user, use the following command:
    SEFAUtil.exe sip:user@sipdomain.com /server:lync2013.devlab01.com

    The call forwarding settings of the user should be displayed.

    User Aor: sip:user@sipdomain.com
    Display Name: <User Name>
    UM Enabled: False
    Simulring enabled: False
    CallForwarding Enabled: false
