Deploy Skype for Business using Click-to-Run Tool and ConfigMgr 2012 R2

Hi folks,

Today I had to deploy Skype for Business for a Office 365 Business Premium Plan using ConfigMgr 2012 R2. This is a special O365 plan for a maximum of 300 users.

Normally with an E3 plan you can use a config.XML file with the lync product code entry called “LyncRetail”.

This is not working for all other plans like E1, E2, Business, BusinessPremium etc.! You have to change the product code to “LyncEntryRetail” otherwise you won’t be able to activate your Skype for Business installation.

This is how my config file now looks like:

<Configuration>

<Add OfficeClientEdition=”32″>
<Product ID=”O365BusinessRetail”>
<Language ID=”en-us” />
</Product>
<Product ID=”LyncEntryRetail”>
<Language ID=”en-us” />
</Product>
</Add>
<Update Enabled=”TRUE” />
<Display Level=”None” AcceptEULA=”TRUE” />
<Logging Name=”OfficeSetup.txt” Path=”%temp%” />

</Configuration>

Here you can find a list of all supported products: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2842297

 

Maybe this helps.

Cheers,
Al
