Plist file over written when Lync 2011 for MAC starts

Hi I’m running into a very frustrating issue where the plist file is overwritten when Lync starts,
Trying this - to get Lync working with
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj945442(v=office.14).aspx
It can be done on Windows....
Ive Quit the Lync app from the task bar menu, Force quit from the apple menu, forced quit from Activity Monitor.
I’m using PlistEdit Pro. I have selected Save and then quit, reopened the plist to confirm changes are saved – yes.
launch lync and files/changes are over written……
Any suggestions?
Cheers
Mike

First, delete the following folders:
Users/Home Folder/Library/Caches/com.microsoft.Lync
Users/Home Folder/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Microsoft Lync History
Then, delete any corrupted or cached certificates. To do this, follow these steps:
Open the Keychain Access certificate management utility. To do this, in Finder, click
Applications, click Utilities, and then click
Keychain Access. Or, search for Keychain Access by using Spotlight.
In the left pane, click login, and then click Certificates.
In the right pane, find a certificate that's named Unknown or
Communications Server, select it, and then delete it.
Note You may have to unlock your keychain by using your password.
Close Keychain Access.
Restart  Lync for Mac.
Important  Before you perform the next step, try reproduce the issue by using a new test user account. If the issue doesn't repeat in the new account, then follow these steps:
Open Keychain Access Preferences, and then click Reset My Default Keychain.
Open Finder, locate the following folders, and then delete them:
/Users/Home Folder/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Microsoft Lync Data
/Users/Home Folder/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Microsoft Lync History

  • Contact pictures not displaying in Lync 2011 for Mac

    Using Lync 2011 for Mac I'm not seeing any contact pictures (including my own), though I can see them when signed into Lync 2013 on a Windows PC (7, 8.1, and 10 Technical Preview for Enterprises).
    My company uses O365 hosted Exchange and on premise Lync Server.
    I'm using OSX 10.10.1 (on a 2014 Air) and Lync for Mac 2011 14.0.10 (141024). I have AutoUpdate set to automatically check weekly and I manually checked (button at the bottom of Microsoft AutoUpdate) so I believe I'm running the current release.
    Logging in with another user account on my same Mac/Lync install has the same issue
    Another user account on their own Mac also has the same issue
    It's also worth noting that the same issue arises when signing into Lync for Android and iOS as well, but not on Windows (Lync 2013).
    Any thoughts? Thank you very much for your time and assistance.
    Also, my apologies for putting this question in this subforum, but I didn't see any main forum for Office for Mac or Lync 2011 or Lync for Mac at all. If there is such here on technet, please drop the link here and I'll move the thread.

    Hi abacus02,
    On mobile, you have no control over how photos are displayed. Lync Mobile can only display photos retrieved from Active Directory or SharePoint, it cannot display a photo from a URL. If a user
    is displaying a photo from a URL and there is a photo in AD, it will display the photo from AD. If there is no photo in AD, it will display no photo at all.
    About Lync for Mac, as I know Lync 2011 for Mac does not support high resolution images. Only in Lync 2013,
    In Lync 2013, when the user’s photo experience has been migrated to Exchange 2013 and they are using Lync 2013, high resolution photos can be used.
    So please tell us where the photos are stored, we need more information to troubleshoot the issue.
    Best regards,
    Eric

  • Lync 2011 for MAC and Lync 2013 Server Std

    Hello,
    We are using a Lync 2013 Std (single-server) as a POC.  It works fine for Windows-clients but I cannot connect using Lync 2011 for MAC from any MAC machine.
    Using automatic configuration, I cannot connect to the Lync server.
    Using manual configuration (I tried putting in just the server name and adding port 5061 to it, both to no avail) I keep getting 'Sign in to Lync failed.  Please verify your credentials and try again.'.
    Lync server is on the latest CU version with all components, MAC clients are on update 140321.
    I noticed that Lync tries to create the [email protected]main, but it seems not te be created.  It flashes by and disappears again when the client fails to login.  I have imported the Lync server certificate, issued by our windows 2012
    root CA, on the Mac clients and have stored it in the 'Login' container.
    Does anybody know if Lync2011 for Mac is supported for use with Lync server 2013 Std?
    Cheers

    Hi,
     To clear cached data and corrupted certificates in Lync, you can do the following steps:
    First, delete the following folders:
    Users/Home Folder/Library/Caches/com.microsoft.Lync
    Users/Home Folder/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Microsoft Lync History
    Then, delete any corrupted or cached certificates. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Open the Keychain Access certificate management utility. To do this, in Finder, click Applications, click Utilities, and then click Keychain Access. Or, search for Keychain Access by using Spotlight.
    2. In the left pane, click login, and then click Certificates.
    3. In the right pane, find a certificate that's named Unknown or Communications Server, select it, and then delete it.
    Note: You may have to unlock your keychain by using your password.
    4. Close Keychain Access.
    5. Restart Lync for Mac.
    You can refer to Lync Mac for Lync Server online, but similar for Lync on-premises:

  • Lync 2011 for MAC not connecting externally to On-Premise Lync 2013

    Hello,
    Hopefully someone has some idea on this or a better direction for me to follow. So currently I have an issue where Lync 2011 for MAC clients will not connect when external to my On-Premise Lync 2013 servers. Everything to do with my Windows based clients
    and even cell phone based client’s works just fine. It is currently only Lync 2011 for MAC which will not correct externally.
    I did initially have the logon problem internally as noted by other posts online when using an internal CA certificate with Lync. But with the internal certificate imported onto the MAC when internally connected Lync 2011 will login just fine. Now in my
    setup I do have a TMG server that clients are connecting to that forwards the connections onto my Lync servers when connecting externally. When I review live real time logs to see what’s connecting to the external URL for Windows based clients I can see them
    connect in on port 443 no problem.
    But with the MAC I don’t see any attempt from it to connect to the URL like I see with the Windows clients. Now below is what shows up in the Microsoft-Lync.log generated by the MAC. Now initially looking at the log I thought my problem was the fact when
    Lync 2011 tires to connect when external that it was doing so on port 5061 which we don’t have open. So I tired entering external.mydomain.com:443 in for my external server in the setup.
    And while rechecking the log after doing so shows like it is now trying to connect on port 443. When reviewing TMG I again see no connection attempt by the MAC to connect to the Lync external url or on port 443. Further research so far into the problem has
    come up empty on the subject. And most other cases where people report problems connecting externally they are using some form of online service like Office 365. So at this point I am not even sure if Lync 2011 for MAC is supposed to work externally with On-Premise
    Lync 2013 deployments or not. If anyone has an thought’s or idea’s please share them as at this point I am stuck on this issue.

    Hi Nicholas Sayewich,
    I tested in my lab and without any problem.
    I also use TMG as Reverse Proxy and without configuring SRV records (My ISP don’t support SRV), after importing the root certificate onto MacBook, I can sign into Lync everywhere(internal
    and external).
    Please make sure that the certificate is set up to
    Always Trust .

  • Lync 2011 for MAC searching contacts

    Hi,
    I have problem to search contacts in lync 2011 for MAC at more than one company, however Lync 2013 for Windows can searching contacts with the first letter.
    Do you know about Microsoft Lync 2011 for Mac Bug?

    Can you add the contact by searching the SIP address?
    Please check if the files GalContacts.db and GalContacts.db.idx are updated in Lync users’ profile folder.
    I guess these files are not updated.
    If this issue happens with several Lync users, you can copy these two files form users’ profile folder to replace the ones in problem Lync users’ profile folder to confirm that.
    Try to run the command Set-CsClientPolicy –Identity -AddressBookAvailability WebSearchOnly, then sign out Lync for Mac and sign in, check if you can search the contacts.

  • Lync 2011 for Mac

    Client has Lync 2011 for Mac on a MacBook running mavericks and it crashes right after I log in and am getting the EXC_BAD_ACCESS error.
    I have tried all of the suggestions I could find on the internet already and nothing has worked. I have even tried the RTM, SP2, and 14.07 version. I would try other versions but can't find them anywhere to download
    Here's the kicker - they have Lync 2010 (all latest updates installed). If I log into our environment which is Lync 2013 using a test account it works just fine. Also if I log in using a test account from a different environment that also has Lync 2010 it
    also works just fine. So it seems it is some kind of interaction between the client and their server environment that is causing the crash and not something locally on the client machine. None of the logging I have done shows anything of value.
    Does anyone have any ideas why it would work using other environments but not this one?

    Did you mean that you can use the same Lync 2011 for Mac on the same computer to sign in successfully to connect other Lync Server?
    That is exactly what I mean. On the same computer using the same client I can successfully connect to two other Lync server systems and it doesn't crash at all. So what on the Lync server of this one system would cause it to crash?
    Please try to create a new user account, then login with the new user account, sign in with Lync 2011 for Mac again.
    I tried that as well and I got the same problem with the client crashing right after I sign in.

  • Lync 2011 for Mac - "sign in failed, service not available"

    I can't sign on to Lync 2011 for Mac at all. I'm running OS X 10.7.2, Lync 14.0.1 (so yes, I've installed the patch) and regardless of what else I do I get the message: 
    "Sign in to Microsoft Lync failed because the service is not available or you may not be connected to the internet."
    Obviously I'm connected to the internet, I've checked the firewall settings and the 3 other troubleshooting articles on the Mac Lync site.  I've deleted the "unknown" certificate from Keychain that some people talked about being the source of their
    issues, but no luck.  What's going on here?  

    Hi amoss,
    Any update?
    It may due to Root CA is not trusted.
    You should trust the correct Root CA in the Keychain Access on your Mac machine.
    In addition, provide this
    troubleshooting guide for reference. Hope helps.

    Hi,
    As the issue happen only for Lync Mac client, so it should be the of Lync Mac client.
    You can try to perform a Clean Uninstall for Mac Lync client and then test again.

  • Lync 2011 for Mac not saving conversation history on outlook 2011

    I have MS Office 2011 on my MAC. I have noticed the conversation history is saved on the MS Lync History folder on the MAC. However the outlook mailbox folder called " conversation history "  is not updated with this info. Any idea what could
    be happening ?
    OS : 10.9.5
    Lync : 14.0.9
    Outlook : 14.4.4
    MS Exchange server 2013.

    Hi,
    For Office 2011 on MAC, the Conversation History isn’t stored in Outlook.
    The conversation history is stored in the path: /Users/<username>/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Microsoft Lync History

  • Lync 2011 for Mac with iMessage on OSX inbound and outbound calls fail

    Running Office 14.4.9 updates and many before that.  If you activate or deactivate an iMessage account using the built-in Messages application, Lync can no longer make or receive calls.  Calls received will automatically go to voicemail. 
    Outbound calls just ring and ring.  The phone setting in Lync were all three set to Lync as well.
    The only way I've found them to work is to following the first instructions at the following link:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/kbview/2691870?wa=wsignin1.0
    Log on to your computer by using administrative credentials.
    Exit Lync if it's running.
    Drag the Lync application to the Trash.
    To remove your existing Lync preferences, delete the following files:
    Users/username/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.Lync.plist
    Users/username/Library/Preferences/ByHost/MicrosoftLyncRegistrationDB.xxxx.plist
    Users/username/Library/Logs/Microsoft-Lync-x.log
    If you activate or deactivate an iMessage account steps 1-4 must be performed, otherwise, phone calls fail.  One additional annoyance I've noticed is that Lync tends to hand with a red X on the icon in the dock when this happens as well.  You must
    use the terminal and do 'pkill Lync' in order to close it.

    Hi MSGuest,
    Can you install the latest update and then check again ?

  • Why are missing items when import pst files to Outlook 2011 for mac?

    Hello.
    After installing Office 2011 for Mac I configured Outlook and it was allright.
    But when I tried to import a pst file from the old laptop who has Office 2007, I found that in the Outlook 2011 Inbox I have only ~60% items comparative with the Outlook 2007 Inbox.
    From Microsoft Office forums I've got an answer that there are indeed some reports with missing items when import pst in Outlook 2011 but the solution they gave me (create folders in Inbox before import) doesn't work.
    Do you know something about this kind of problems?
    Is it a feature in Outlook 2011 which automaticaly select/delete/combine items based on the similarity between them or based something else?
    Have you an ideea how to finally use this macbook and in the same time all my old emails?
    Thanks.

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks for this-yes, eventually, I do send/receive fine, once I've poppedd my passwords in. 
    I think you are right in that BT seem to be having unique server/login issues...at least this is what I've read elsewhere too.
    Iroonically, this AM I opened my new Mac and have *not* been asked for passwords so perhaps the changes I made in the settings yesterday (keychain reset in Mac) and also changing it from smtp.....to mail.btinternet.com solved the issue...who knows? All I know is this last week I've nearly lost the will to live on more than one occasion, from the transition from PC Windows Live Mail to Outlook for Mac.

  • Fetching of attached files delayed, minutes-hours in Outlook 2011 for Mac from Exchange online

    Hi,
    I have an annoying problem I would be grateful if someone could solve.
    I run Outlook 2011 for Mac which is synced towards Microsoft Exchange online. Everything works well except when there are attached files in incoming emails.  Sometimes it can take up to hours before an attached file is available (the email as such is
    available immediately), however luckily it is mostly done within 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile the notification bar switch between "Awaiting synchronisation for this folder" and "Fetching attached files...". There is no actual difference between
    larger and smaller files and there is also no problem sending emails with attached files, they are sent immediately.
    I have tested in different locations with good connections to rule out unstable internet connection without success.
    Thanks for any help with this issue!

    Hi,
    Since this is the forum supporting Office for Windows, if you want to receive more information about Office 2011, I recommend you post this problem in Office for Mac forum:

  • I recently upgraded to Lion and i find that my computer is running slow and applications are crashing.  For example I have Word 2011 for Mac and it crashes all the time I end up losing my work.  It often happens when I'm in notebook trying to record.

    i recently upgraded to Lion and i find that my computer is running slow and applications are crashing.  For example I have Word 2011 for Mac and it crashes all the time I end up losing my work.  It often happens when I'm in class using notebook and when I press record my computer starts thinking and it freezes.
    Also, I feel that it overheats often and my battery runs out pretty quickly.  I had the macbook (black) and this never happened before.  I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if there is something with my computer.I bought my computer summer 2010, I don't think this should be happening. Please Help......

    This is exactly what keeps happening to mine too.  I was at a conference taking notes, and I was
    using the Notebook template, and doing some audio recording simultaneously.  About 3 hours into the conference (not consistently recording, but on and off with the sessions) my file wouldn't save anymore, saying something like "File cannot be modified while in use with another program" and "Invalid file name" when I would go back into my folder to look for it). I tried installing some updates from Microsoft, and when I restarted, I was at least able to open my old notes again, and so far it looks like the audio was working.  However, today at the conference, the same thing happened again, but I wasn't actively recording any audio (though after I had copy and pasted my second file of notes into the original, I went back to using it after re-naming it). 
    Does the crash happen to you under similar cirucumstances?  The update might help a little, but it is definitely not the solution.  Does anyone have any solutions?  Lion shouldn't be this buggy... I moved to Mac to get away from the garbage of bugs and compatibility issues...

  • Inserting a .wmv file into a powerpoint 2011 for mac

    When I try to insert a wmv file in powerpoint 2011 for mac I get the following error.  "Powerpoint couldn't insert a movie from the selected file.  Either the file is non standard or Quicktime is not installed properly."    I do have Flip4Mac installed.  I also tried to rename the .wmv file as a .mov file.  Thanks in advance for your help.

    I do have Flip4Mac installed.  I also tried to rename the .wmv file as a .mov file.
    Do you have the $29 (or greater) Flip4Mac decoder component installed? Changing the file extension at the Finder level does not change the data type contained within the file nor the file container type. If you want the WMV data in an MOV file container, you must use the QT 7 Pro (or MPEG Streamclip) "Save As..." option (together with the decoder component) to partially expand the WMV data (file will be noticeably larger) and place the expanded data in a "real" MOV file container.

  • So when I installed the most recent updates for microsoft office 2011 for mac, my ical info disappeared.  Still have the info on my Office calendar but it's no longer on ical.  It's also been removed from my phone.  How can I get outlook to sync with ical

    When I installed the recent updates for Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac, my iCal calendar was wiped out, as was the calendar on my iPhone.  I'd rather use iCal than Office and was attempting to phase Office out altogether.  Now, all of my information is on the Office calendar but not iCal.  The iCloud version of my iCal calendar is not up to date.  In any event, I couldn't figure out how to send that info to the iCal on my mac or my phone.  How can I sync my Office calendar info to iCal?  If that's not possible, how can I get my Office calendar to sync with my iPhone?  All of my sync services are set up in iTunes and on my phone.  This happened to me once before and I spent hours on the phone with Apple and on the web trying to work it out.  I NEED MY CALENDAR!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    As that's not an Apple product, you may get more help by using Microsoft's Office for Mac forums:
    Office for Mac forums
    The other concern I have is that Office 2011 requires an Intel-based Mac and you posted in the older iMac (pre-Intel or "PPC") forums. If you have an Intel-based iMac (Apple menu > About this Mac..." will say "Intel" if you do) then I think you'll get faster and more accurate ansers to other questiosn in the Apple forums for newer iMacs here:
