In a Microsoft Lync hybrid deployment, when you try to move a user to Microsoft Lync Online by using Lync Online PowerShell, you receive the following error message:

Before you try to move the user to Lync Online, the user must be enabled for both Lync Server on-premises and Lync Online. The solution is to sign in to the Office 365 admin center and then assign the user a license for Lync Online. For more information about how to assign a license to a user, go to the following Microsoft website:
Assign or remove a license


After you assign a license, you may receive the error that is mentioned in the "PROBLEM" section until the user is fully provisioned for Lync Online. This can require up to 30 minutes in some cases.

Still need help? Go to the Office 365 Community website.
