User in a lobby receives incorrect information when they are denied entry to a conference in Lync 2013

Consider the following scenario:
  • User A schedules a conference in Microsoft Outlook or uses the Meet Now option to start a conference in Microsoft Lync 2013.
  • User A configures restricted entry for the conference.
  • User B clicks the conferencing link to try to join the conference.
  • User B enters the lobby, and then user A denies user B access to the conference by using the lobby UI.
In this scenario, user B is removed from user A's lobby UI. However, user B's Lync 2013 client still displays user B in the lobby, together with the following message:
Hello. You're in our virtual lobby, so make yourself comfortable. The organizer will let you in soon.
This issue occurs because of an incorrect enumeration value.
