Hello folks! This is my first of many IT blog posts, mainly to help me remember stuff, but you may glean some useful stuff off of it too.
At my work, we are currently rolling out a new Lync phone system, and this quirk started showing up with several users. This is what I did to solve it...
First! Make sure the user hasn't actually disabled their picture on their Lync client. You don't want to waste time on a more complex fix that will essentially do nothing if they have their photo hidden.
In rare cases, the contact list may be corrupted because of an invalid character in an "out of office" message or because a lingering deprovisioned contact exists. To resolve this problem, force a contact list update to make sure that your information is synchronized. To this, follow these steps:
You can use the very nifty command line tool, PSEXEC to dump all of the ipconfig settings into a text file! You can download PSTOOLS (Including PSEXEC) here.
To do this, open up the command prompt by clicking "Start" then searching for "cmd."The command prompt icon will show as "cmd." Right-click it and run as administrator.In the command prompt, type in the following command...
"psexec \\* ipconfig /all > c:/output.txt"
PSEXEC will display a message telling you that it is enumerating the domain. This may take a while!
Once it has finished, a text file called output.txt will appear on the root of the C drive containing the ipconfig settings of every windows machine on the domain.
