Enabling a user for unified messaging in Exchange 2013

We should firstly enable the user for Lync by going to the Lync Server Control Panel >> Users >> User Properties >> Ensure "Enabled for Lync Server" is ticked >> Choose a SIP address, Telephony, Dial Plan and so on.

We will now enable unified messaging for a mailbox user from the Exchange Management Shell:

Enable-UMMailbox -Extensions 100 -SIPResourceIdentifier "user@contoso.com" -Identity "user@contoso.com" -UMMailboxPolicy "MyMailboxPolicy"

We can then confirm this with:

Get-UMMailbox -Identity "User Name" | FL

And finally check the connectivity for the newly enabled user:

Test-CsExUMConnectivity "User Name"
