Secondary Extension Feature Activation (SEFAUtil) allows Lync administrators to configure call forwarding settings on behalf of other users and query their call routing settings. Below are the steps for implementing SEFAUtil on an existing Lync Front End server:

  1. Login to Frontendserver.domain.com, download and install Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Resource Kit Tools Download Here
  2. From the Lync Management Shell, run Get-CsSite to find your SiteId. As you can see from the example below, in the test lab our SiteId is Tokyo:

New-CsTrustedApplicationPool –id Frontendserver.domain.com –Registrar Frontendserver.domain.com -site $Site.SiteId
