No delegation relationship in Lync 2013 (Skype for Business) even though you're a delegate in Outlook 2013

Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • You've been added as a delegate in Microsoft Outlook 2013.
  • The EnableExchangeDelegateSync parameter of the delegator's client policy is set to $True.
  • The EnableDelegation parameter of the delegator's voice policy is set to $False.
  • Neither the delegator nor your accounts are enabled for Enterprise Voice (EV).
  • MAPI information on the Microsoft Lync 2013 (Skype for Business) client Configuration Information page shows MAPI Status OK.
  • You aren't displayed in the Delegates group in the Lync 2013 (Skype for Business) contact list.
  • The delegator isn't displayed in the People I Manage Calls For group in Lync 2013 (Skype for Business) contact list.
In this scenario, you can't create a Lync (Skype for Business) meeting for the delegator in the Outlook client.
Cause
This issue occurs because of a conflict in delegation parameter settings between the client policy and the voice policy that are assigned to the delegator.

The Lync 2013 (Skype for Business) client can add you as a delegate only if both the EnableExchangeDelegateSync parameter of the delegator's client policy and the EnableDelegation parameter of the delegator's voice policy are set to $True.
Resolution
To fix the issue, use one of the following methods:
  • Method 1:
    • Make sure that the EnableExchangeDelegateSync parameter in delegator's the client policy is set to $True.
    • Make sure that the EnableDelegation parameter in the delegator's voice policy is set to $True.
    • Remove and re-add the delegate relationship if necessary.

    Note
     This is the recommended solution because it requires the least amount of administrative effort.
  • Method 2:
     
    The appropriate administrator can manage delegator and delegate relationships by using the SEFAUtil.exe tool. For more information, see Resource Kit tools documentation.
More information
