Now that Skype for Business server has introduced the ability of migrating Online users I’d thought I’d see how the process works in my lab
Note: As I discovered, the same restrictions regarding management of Domain Admin/Protected group members applies here too, this means you get a nice error message if you try and use the Control Panel to move a Domain Administrator.
First we find our user
After selecting the user, you follow the same procedure as if you are moving a user between pools, in this case you instead select the Move selected users to Skype for Business Online instead
Note: During testing I migrated a user homed on a Lync Pool straight to Skype Online without having to migrate to Skype For Business server first.
When you try and edit the user in the on-premise control panel you see a similar screen to Lync
