Introduction
About Synergy SKY Meeting Server
New technologies have made it possible for enterprise collaboration solutions to work seamlessly together.
Today Skype for Business users and video conferencing users participate in joint meetings as standard, with
high-quality video, audio and content sharing. There are still some challenges, however, when it comes to the
user experience.
Joining a meeting using Skype is easy, but the video conference user has to dial the meeting address from a
video touch pad or a remote control. It may not even be possible to dial the address from an endpoint if the
meeting is hosted in Office365 (Skype Online). Automating the connection process is therefore of great value
to organizations.
Synergy SKY Meeting Server (SMS) solves this by automatically connecting video conferencing systems to
Skype meetings using Cisco One Button To Push (OBTP). The end-user simply schedules a new Skype meeting
in Microsoft Outlook and adds the required video conferencing systems. SMS manages the connection and
brings the OBTP information to the video endpoint. This removes the risk of typing errors, and ensures that all
meetings start on time.
SMS is shipped either as a Windows installer with a simple setup wizard that enables quick deployment, or as an
appliance.
The solution supports on-premise installations of Skype and Microsoft Exchange as well as Office 365.

How Synergy SKY Meeting Server works
This section gives an overview of SMS features and how the product works; configuration is explained in more
detail in the following chapters.
Feature overview
SMS supports the following feature set:
l
l
l
l
l
Booking Skype meetings using Outlook: SMS creates a Skype URI for the meeting that is sent as One
Button to Push (OBTP) to all video endpoints scheduled in the same meeting.
Booking one-time Pexip VMRs: the endpoints receive the URI as OBTP.
SMS can identify patterns in meeting room invitations so that the endpoint can be populated with OBTP
information for personal VMRs (e.g. meet.js@example.org).
SMS dials out to booked endpoints that don't support OBTP.
Emails containing the dial-in information for the meeting can automatically be sent to the meeting
participants.
Overall process from install to end user
1. After installation, video admins add the following information into the SMS configurator tool:
o Exchange server connection settings.
o MCU details (Pexip MCU that acts as Skype Gateway)
o Exchange video meeting room resources.
Page 4 of 21
Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
2. Users book a Skype video meeting from Outlook, inviting one or more meeting room resources.
3. SMS monitors the meeting rooms at the interval specified in Polling interval in minutes in the configurator,
to check if they receive a meeting invite :
a. Invitations sent to meeting room resources include a URI in this format:
sip:js@example.org;gruu;opaque=app:conf:focus:id:TTC86056
b. SMS rewrites that to a URI the meeting room endpoint can call eg: S4B.TTC86056.js@example.org
(this format is defined in Matching Rules in the configurator).
4. The rewritten URI is sent to the endpoint as OBTP ready for attendees to start the meeting.
5. The call is routed through Pexip to the Skype server, using a gateway rule on the Pexip MCU.
How the URIs are generated
Skype URIs for SMS should be based on your company dial plan.
In our example, our URI Prefix is S4B (for Skype for Business). We recommend using a prefix that easily
identifies these URIs on your network as Synergy SKY Meeting Server Skype for Business URIs.
The second part of the URI is the Skype Meeting ID, and the last part is the Skype User ID.
A URI created from our matching rule pattern looks like this:
URI Prefix
Skype Meeting ID
Skype User ID
Full URI
S4B
TTC86056
js@example.org
S4B.TTC86056.js@example.org
Page 5 of 21
Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
How the call is routed
There must be a Destination alias match in a gateway rule on the Pexip that corresponds to the matching rule
URI pattern so that when the endpoint dials the skype URI, it is routed correctly.
The protocol for this rule must be MS-SIP.
Destination alias match
Replace string
Protocol
S4B\.([a-zA-Z0-9]+)\.(.+@.+)
\2;gruu;opaque=app:conf:focus:id:\1
Lync (MS-SIP)
See Pexip documentation for more information on creating gateway rules.
Note: If calls go through a VCS, you need a search rule on the VCS to send calls corresponding with the prefix
of your URI pattern to Pexip (in our example, S4B).

Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
Exchange Room requirements
When deploying Synergy SKY Meeting Server (SMS), we recommend considering the following Microsoft
Exchange Room properties in order to unlock the full potential of the product.
The embedded test tool in the SMS Configurator can be used to verify most of these properties, and suggests
PowerShell commands to configure the rooms according to the SMS recommendations.
Property name
Function in Microsoft Exchange
Function in Synergy SKY Meeting
Server
Recommended Required
Setting
AddOrganizerToSubject
Specifies whether the meeting
organizer's name is used as the
subject of the meeting request.
When set to $true , Exchange
overwrites the subject of the
meeting with the name of the
organizer, which means SMS
displays the organizer's name
instead of the meeting title on the
touch panel of the video system.
$false
Yes, if you want
the meeting
name displayed
on the touch
panel.
$false
Yes, if you want
the meeting to
be displayed on
the touch panel.
$false
Yes, so that
your matching
rules work
correctly.
$true
Yes, so that
forwarding
invites from
external users
works correctly.
Valid input for this parameter is
$true or $false .
The default value is $true .
If you want the subject of the
meeting to be hidden, you can
select the Private flag when
booking the meeting in Outlook,
even if this property is set to
$false .
See also RemovePrivateProperty.
DeleteSubject
Specifies whether to remove or
keep the subject of incoming
meeting requests.
Valid input for this parameter is
$true or $false .
The default value is $true .
This parameter is used only on
resource mailboxes where the
AutomateProcessing parameter is
set to AutoAccept.
When set to $true , Exchange
deletes the subject of the meeting
which means SMS does not
display a meeting title on the
touch panel of the video system.
If you want the subject of the
meeting to be hidden, you can
select the Private flag when
booking the meeting in Outlook,
even if this property is set to
$false .
See also RemovePrivateProperty.
DeleteComments
The DeleteComments parameter
specifies whether to remove or keep
any text in the message body of
incoming meeting requests.
Valid input for this parameter is
$true or $false .
This parameter is used only on
resource mailboxes where the
AutomateProcessing parameter is
set to AutoAccept.
ProcessExternalMeetingMessages
The
ProcessExternalMeetingMessages
parameter specifies whether to
process meeting requests that
originate outside the Exchange
organization.
Valid input for this parameter is
$true or $false .
The default value is $false .
By default, meeting requests that
originate outside of the organization
are rejected.
When set to $true , Exchange
deletes the body of the meeting
invitation when booking rooms.
As the matching rules rely on
reading content in the body of the
email, this stops Regex and the
Skype URI External rule from
working in SMS.
When set to $false , Exchange will
not allow external users to book
Rooms resources.
However, a room is booked on
behalf of the organizer if a user
forwards an invite into a room.
This setting must therefore be set
to $true to allow internal users to
forward invitations to external
Skype meetings into their meeting
rooms, so that they can benefit
from easy calling into external
Skype meetings.
Note: Administrators can still
avoid external users booking their
rooms directly by using an internal
domain in the room’s alias (e.g.
meetingroom@synergysky.local)

Function in Synergy SKY Meeting
Server
Recommended Required
Setting
RemovePrivateProperty
The RemovePrivateProperty
parameter specifies whether to
clear the private flag for incoming
meeting requests.
When set to $true , Exchange
removes the Private flag when a
Room is booked as a resource in a
meeting flagged as Private in
Outlook. This means that the
meeting title is visible to everyone
for all meetings.
$false
No.
AutoAccept
Yes.
$false
Recommended:
configure so
that approval is
not required.
Valid input for this parameter is
$true or $false .
The default value is $true .
By default, the private flag for
incoming meeting requests is
cleared. To ensure the private flag
that was sent by the organizer in the
original request remains as
specified, set this parameter to
$false .
AutomateProcessing
The AutomateProcessing parameter
enables or disables calendar
processing on the mailbox.
This parameter takes the following
values:
l
l
l
None Both the resource
booking attendant and the
Calendar Attendant are disabled
on the mailbox.
AutoUpdate Only the Calendar
Attendant processes meeting
requests and responses.
AutoAccept Both the Calendar
Attendant and resource booking
attendant are enabled on the
mailbox. This means that the
Calendar Attendant updates the
calendar, and then the resource
booking assistant accepts the
meeting based upon the
policies.
By setting this property to $false
you can hide the title on meetings
that are booked as Private in
Outlook, while showing the title of
all other meetings.
Meetings that are booked in Room
resources are stored as Tentative
unless this setting is set to
AutoAccept.
Tentative meetings are not
processed by SMS, as you can
book multiple tentative meetings
within the same time interval in
one resource.
The default value on a resource
mailbox is AutoAccept.
The default value on a user mailbox
is AutoUpdate , but you can't change
the value on a user mailbox.
AllRequestInPolicy
AllRequestOutOfPolicy
RequestInPolicy
RequestOutOfPolicy
These parameters specify whether
to allow users to submit policy
requests.
Valid input for these parameters are
$true or $false .
The default value is $false .
Meetings booked in Room
resources that are configured with
either of these properties that
require meetings to be approved
by a delegate, will not be
processed by SMS until they are
approved.
This will lead to a significant delay
for the meeting organizers, and is
therefore not recommended.

Page 10 of 21
Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
Configuring Synergy SKY Meeting Server
All configuration of the Synergy SKY Meeting Server (SMS) is done using the configuration tool.
Task 1: Launching the configuration tool and installing the
service
1. Start the configuration tool by double-clicking on the SMS icon on the desktop.
Note: On startup, the server checks for updates, so if you do not have internet access configured on the
server, you will see an error here.
2. Click Install Service to install the SMS service on the server - once installed this button disappears from the
configuration tool.
The Start and Stop buttons are used once the service is installed to stop and start it, as necessary.

Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
Task 2: Configuring the General Settings
Fill in the fields in the General Settings tab as follows:
Section/Field name
Description
Contact
Contact details for the administrator who should receive notifications of any problems in the platform, for
example if SMS fails to push OBTP information to endpoints.
Admin Contact Name
The name of the administrator.
Admin Contact Email
The email address of the administrator.
Exchange Connection info
The Exchange Web Service (EWS) details for your Exchange environment.
EWS Url
The Exchange Web Service (EWS) URL: if using Office 365, then you can normally use the default value
already populated here: https://outlook.office365.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx
EWS Service Account Username
The username of the EWS service account.
For details of the permissions required for the service account, see "Requirements" on page 7
EWS Service Account Domain
The domain of the EWS service account.
EWS Service Account Password
The password of the EWS service account.
MCU Connection info
A Pexip Infinity Management Node is required so that SMS can launch outbound calls to non-OBTP
systems, and provision one-time Virtual Meeting Rooms (VMRs) when booking non-Skype meetings.
MCU address / hostname
The address of the Pexip Management Node. Will normally start with https://
MCU Username
The username of an admin account on the Pexip Management Node.
MCU Password
The password of an admin account on the Pexip Management Node.
TMS Connection info (optional)
Optionally you can add Cisco TMS to your SMS; this is of value if the video systems are configured with
dynamic IP addresses (DHCP) in your environment. SMSwill then query TMS for updated IP addresses if it is
unable to connect to the video systems. Adding TMS also makes it easier to add video systems, as they
can then be selected from a list instead of having to enter their IP addresses manually.
Cisco TMS address / hostname
The hostname or IP address of the TMS server. This could be prefixed with either http:// or https://. SMS
assumes TMS is installed on the default web application named /TMS (e.g. http://tms.company.com/tms).
Cisco TMS Username
The username of a Site Administrator in TMS. The username would normally be prefix with the NETBIOS
domain (e.g. company\admin).
Cisco TMS Password
The password of a Site Administrator in TMS.
Task 3: Testing that email is working
Click Test notification email to send a test email to the Admin Contact Email address using the EWS Service
Account defined in the sections above.
Task 4: Creating Matching Rules
After configuring the General Settings, you need to create matching rules.
The matching rules in SMS allow you to define how calendar bookings should be processed.
As an example, you can create rules that define that SMS should do the following:
1. Look for personal VMRs in invites from internal users.
2. Look for Skype invites from all users.
3. Create a one-time VMR if neither 1 or 2 apply.
Page 12 of 21
Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
Configuring the General Rules
Configure the General Rules as follows:
Field
Description
Internal email domains
Specify a comma separated list of the email domains your organization uses. This list is used to determine whether
a meeting room invitation is sent from an internal or external user. It is also used to determine which users are
internal and external when sending out connection information emails. (e.g. synergysky.com, synergysky.eu,
synergysky.us)
Create VMR meetings
When this box is ticked, SMS will provision one-time VMRs in Pexip when a meeting is booked in a videoconferencing-enabled meeting room, and none of the rules in the rule list are met. This is then seen as a “default”
rule with the lowest priority. The VMRs will be provisioned with an alias and pin codes as defined in Conference
Settings, and dial-in information will be sent out as configured.
Page 13 of 21
Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
Creating the rules
First, select the type of rule you want to add from the Add Rule dropdown menu:
Rule type
Description
Skype URI Internal
This rule makes SMS look for Skype invites in hidden text in the invite.
This will normally work for all Skype meetings when the invitation is sent internally in the organization. The
information may however be lost if the email jumps multiple Exchange servers, or when the invite comes from
someone outside the organization.
This rule can only be added once.
Skype URI External
This rule analyzes the Hyperlink in the body of the invitation to find the URI of the Skype meeting. This will work in
most environments, both internally and externally, but is slower. It is therefore recommended to use this as a
fallback rule with lower priority than the Skype URI Internal rule.
This rule can only be added once.
Regex Rule
This rule enables you to use Regex to define how you want SMS to work. You can define your own pattern
matches, and differentiate between invitations from internal and external organizers.
You can define both matching patterns and replace patterns to transform the URI when required.
This rule can be added multiple times.
Configure the remaining fields as follows:
Field
Description
Priority
The priority defines the order in which the rules are applied. The lowest number gives the highest priority. (E.g. 1 is
processed before 5).
Applies to
This setting defines whether the rule applies to internal, external or all invitations.
Matching value
This field defines the Regex rule for matching data. This setting only applies to Regex rules. (e.g.
\d@company.com will match all URIs starting with a number and ending with @company.com )
Replace value
This field defines how the matched data should be transformed before being sent to the endpoint.
The default for Skype URIs is:
S4B.(SkypeMeetingId).(SkypeUserId)@(UserDomain)
where:
l
l
l
SkypeMeetingId = alphanumeric meeting Id found in every Skype meeting invite
SkyperUserId = the userpart of the organizer’s Skype SIP URI
UserDomain = the domain in the organizer’s Skype SIP URI
The value \0 uses the entire matched value, while \1 matches the first pair of parenthesis and so on.
Example:
Matching Value: Id: (\d)
Replace Value: \1@video.company.com
Email body: Conference Id: 123456789
URI = 12346789@video.company.com
NOTE: For Organizations with a Pexip Gateway hosted by a Service Provider, the recommended pattern would
be:
S4B.(SkypeMeetingId).(SkypeUserId)_(UserDomain)@serviceProvidersDomain.com
This allows the Service Provider to strip away their domain and replace the underscore with @ before sending the
call through the Pexip Gateway..
Page 14 of 21
Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
Testing, editing and deleting rules
Click the large Test button in the Add Rules area of the Matching Rules tab to launch the Regex Test Tool. The
tool will help you identify any errors in your regex by testing a Matching Value and Replace Value towards a
text field:

Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
Task 5: Adding Rooms
This tab is where you choose which meeting room resources in Exchange should be monitored by SMS. The
Microsoft Exchange User service account requires Full Calendar Access to these rooms. For more details see
"Requirements" on page 7.
This table explains the fields and buttons on the Rooms tab:
Section/Field name
Description
Available Rooms in Exchange
This list shows a list of Exchange Room Lists from your Exchange environment.
Room lists are special address books in Exchange that only contain Rooms.
If no room lists are shown, ask your Exchange administrator to create one for you based on the examples
below.
Once a list of Room Lists is shown, double-click a list to open it. You can then double-click rooms to add
them to the Selected Rooms list.
Example for creating room lists in PowerShell:
$RoomAlias = Get-Mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails RoomMailbox -Filter {Office -eq
'HQ'} | select -ExpandProperty Alias
New-DistributionGroup -RoomList -Name 'HQ Meetingrooms' -Members $RoomAlias
$RoomAlias = Get-Mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails RoomMailbox | select -ExpandProperty
Alias
New-DistributionGroup -RoomList -Name 'All Meetingrooms' -Members $RoomAlias
Selected Rooms
This list shows which rooms are added to SMS. They must be “connected” to video systems in the Video
Systems tab before they can be used. Double-clicking rooms in this list will remove them.
Refresh Room list from Exchange
This button is used to refresh the room list from Exchange.
Note: It can take up to 15 minutes before a room list is visible here after adding a room list in Exchange.
Add Exchange room manually
Click this button to add rooms from Exchange manually.
This is done by providing a display name and an alias for the room.

Page 18 of 21
Synergy SKY Meeting Server Installation and Configuration Guide
Configure the fields in the Conference Settings tab as follows:
Section/Field name
Description
Connection Details
Conference Start Buffer (Minutes)
The start buffer defines when VMRs are provisioned and can be dialed into, and it defines when
the green button in the OBTP message can be pressed on the video system.
Conference End Buffer (Minutes)
The end buffer defines when the VMRs are de-provisioned and the remaining participants are
disconnected.
Retry count on dial outs
The retry count controls how many call attempts are made to dial-out video systems if the initial
connection attempt fails.
Retry delay between
The retry delay controls how long SMS will wait between the dial out attempts per participant.
VMR information
If you have specified that SMS should create one-time VMRs, this is where you define the
numeric alias number range and domain so the VMRs can be reached via an IVR from
telephones.
Conference Alias Range Start
This defines the start value of the number range used to create the URIs (e.g. 900000 ).
Conference Alias Range End
This defines the end value of the number range used to create the URI (e.g. 9999999).
Conference Alias Domain
This defines the domain of the URI.
Send Conference Notifications
This section defines who should receive a dial-in information email when one-time VMRs are
booked.
To edit the email templates, go to
C:\SynergySKY\SynergySKYEnterpriseScheduling\emailTemplates and manually edit the
templates using an HTML editor. See "Configuring Email templates" on the next page.
Note: The email domain list in the Matching Rules tab is used to determine which guest
participants are internal/external.
Organizer
The organizer of the meeting will receive the dial-in information email.
Internal guests
Internal guest participants in the meeting will receive the dial-in information email.
External guests
External guest participants in the meeting will receive the dial-in information email.
Generate Pin Codes
This section defines whether the one-time VMRs should be configured with pin codes.
The pin codes are included in the emails that are sent out to the Organizer and internal/external
guests.
Note: If using pin codes, you must update the email templates to ensure that the host pin is not
sent to guest participants.
Host pin
A 4-digit pin code will be randomly generated for each one-time VMR for hosts to use to start the
meeting.
Guest pin
A 4-digit pin code will be randomly generated for each one-time VMR for guests to use to join the
meeting.

Task 8: Adding a License
Add a license for your SMS installation, obtained from www.synergysky.com.
You can use SMS with up to 3 video systems without a valid license, but a valid license is required to unlock the
full potential of the product.
Task 9: Configuring Email templates
There are 4 types of email that are sent out to users from SMS:
Type of email
Description
Recurrence error
Sent to the meeting organizer when a recurring meeting is booked from Outlook - recurrence is not
currently supported in SMS.
