Consider the following scenario:

  • You configure a call park orbit table that contains the # character or the * character in Number range in a Microsoft Lync Server 2010 environment.

  • A user tries to retrieve a parked call from a Lync 2010 client. The Lync 2010 client is paired with a telephone that is running Lync 2010 Phone Edition.

  • The user types an orbit number which contains the # character or the * character in the Type a name or phone number field on the Lync 2010 client, and then tries to dial it.

In this scenario, the user cannot retrieve the parked call.


This issue occurs because the protocol that is used to establish a connection between the Lync 2010 client and the telephone cannot handle the # character or the * character.


To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update:

2496325 Description of the cumulative update package for Lync 2010: April 2011


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
