The location won't be published after you update it in VDIv2 in a Skype for Business 2015 (Lync 2013) environment

Applies to: Skype for Business 2015Microsoft Lync 2013


Assume that there are two users, user A and user B. At first, user A signs in Microsoft Skype for Business 2015 (Lync 2013) in a Citrix environment. Then user B signs in the client in a normal environment. In this situation, if user A sets the custom location, user B cannot see it. Then, if user A disconnects the Citrix Xendesktop (The client is still running on VM), user B can see the custom location.

This issue occurs because when you determine whether the location should be published, you only check whether the user is in VD1v1 or not.


To fix this issue, install the February 7, 2017, update (KB3161988) for Skype for Business.

Note Lync 2013 was upgraded to Skype for Business in April 2015.
