Some users are not showing in Teams Admin Center

Some users are not showing in Teams Admin Center. Its a night mare to figure out the issue. The issue happened to be some users had lync / skype for business attributes enabled and disabled in the past. Even thought it was decommissioned gracefully one of the attribute was enabled with a value of SRV: was causing the issue.

How to quickly test you are in the same boat . Check for RTC attributes for working and not working user.

Get-ADUser vaishika -Properties * | FL Samaccountname,*rtc*

Please note that i don’t have lync or skype for business deployment in the environment so i cleared all the attribute for the not working users.

Never run this on a Lync or skype for business working user. It will screw their lync or skype for business credentials

Just took a backup of the values am going to clear.

Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties * -SearchBase "OU=01 Users,DC=azure365pro,DC=com" | Select-Object Samaccountname,msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator | Export-Csv BackupAttribute.csv

Clear the attribute for all users –

Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties * | Set-ADUser -Clear msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator

Specific Organizational Unit –

Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties * -SearchBase "OU=01 Users,DC=azure365pro,DC=com" | Set-ADUser  -Clear msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator


Take the CSV Filter the accounts and Clear the Attribute for specific users –

Import-Csv clear.csv | ForEach-Object{Set-ADUser $_.samaccountname -Clear msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator

For me msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator was causing the issue but it could be any of the below attributes causing the issue. Still the lync and skype for busines legacy links is following Teams . Nothing can’t be done.

  • msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator
  • msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled
  • msRTCSIP-InternetAccessEnabled
  • msRTCSIP-Line
  • msRTCSIP-OptionFlags
  • msRTCSIP-PrimaryHomeServer
  • msRTCSIP-PrimaryUserAddress
  • msRTCSIP-UserEnabled

  1. Hi Satheshwaran,
    You mentioned, but it should be noticeable to all, not to use the script if you have a SfB Hybrid environment. Or nobody will be able to sign-in 🙂

    The most probable situation is the SRV value on the field combined with the fact that your tenant is not configured with a ‘shared address space’
