The Invalid_AD_Phone_Numbers.txt file is not generated in the Address Book files in a Lync Server 2010 environment

Applies to: Lync Server 2010 Standard EditionLync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition

Symptoms


Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable the Enterprise Voice feature in a Microsoft Lync Server 2010 environment.
  • You create a new text file that is named Company_Phone_Number_Normalization_Rules.txt in the folder that contains the Address Book Server files. You configure appropriate rules in the file.
    Note
    • In Lync Server 2010 Standard Edition, the default location path for the Address Book Server files is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Web Components\Address Book Files\Files.
    • In Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition, the Address Book Server files are located in the shared folder in the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path that is configured during the deployment of the Lync Server 2010 environment.
  • You define one or more Lync 2010 users who have a telephone number. The telephone number cannot be normalized by the rules in the Company_Phone_Number_Normalization_Rules.txt file.
In this scenario, the Invalid_AD_Phone_Numbers.txt file is not generated.
