Change Call Forwarding Number via SEFAUTIL in Lync 2013

Here is a handy command that you can run on your Lync Server to change the call forwarding number of a Lync User

Please Note: You must have the Lync 2013 Resource Kit installed and have deployed SEFAUTIL as a CSTrustedApplication (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj945659.aspx)

You will need to change the value in Red to match your environment

If the Lync user already has a Call forwarding number set up and you wish to change it , run the below command:

sefautil /server:poolname.domain.com
SIPAddressOfUser@risual.com
/setfwddestination:+44123467891

If the user doesn’t have call forwarding enabled, you can enable with the below command:

sefautil /server:poolname.domain.com
SIPAddressOfUser@risual.com
/setfwddestination:+44123467891 /enablefwdimmediate

And finally if you want to disable call forwarding completely for a user run:

sefautil /server:poolname.domain.com
SIPAddressOfUser@risual.com /disablefwdimmediate

Hope this is useful J
