Error in Skype for business “Create Skype meeting failed. Please make sure that Skype for Business is running and signed-in and try again”
I saw an error when a user with outlook 2016 and windows 10 tried to create a Skype meeting and this message error showed up.

After check the policies configured for this user in the server, I thought it was an outlook issue related, because all policies were configured correctly.

My Troubleshooting was:
  • The first step check the Add in in outlook and verify if it was enabled. The add in was already enabled and the issue persists.
  • The second was recreate outlook and Skype profiles but the problem still was there.

As the user has two pools in Skype, I moved the user to the second pool and it solved the problem.

Now the user is able to create Skype meetings from outlook.

I hope this information helps.
