Error in skype for business “Create skype meeting failed. Please make sure that Skype for Business is running and signed-in and try again”

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. 

Can’t send IM to chat groups "A server error occurred, please contact your administrator"

“A server error occurred, please contact your administrator” message error on Skype for business client.

If you are trying to send a message to a chat group and get this message error: “A server error occurred, please contact your administrator” maybe it’s a SQL problem, to confirm this you can run the follow command in a Skype for business Front End server:

PS C:\> Get-CsUserPoolInfo UserAffected

You can see to which server is connected

PrimaryPoolPrimaryRegistrar


As well you can hold the Ctrl key and right click on the Skype for business icon in the task bar



And check “Skype for business server” field to get the server name.

Once you get the Skype for business server, Go to Event viewer and check the errors, you will find the error “LS User Store Sync Agent” with Event 57005

The transaction log for database ‘rtcxds’ is full due to ‘LOG_BACKUP’.

or Event 9002 “The transaction log for database ‘rtcxds’ is full due to ‘DATABASE_MIRRORING’.”


It means you need to back up the rtcxds database.

Go to your backend SQL server, right click on rtcxds database, all task. Backup.
In the Backup type choose Transaction Log.

Add a destination and click on OK button.

After back up the DB you will be able to send IM to the chat groups.
