Lync Server 2010 Monitoring Management Pack updated

New version 4.0.7577.203 of the MP for Lync Server 2010. There are not so many changes:

  • Added functionality to support co-existence of management packs during migration from Lync Server 2010 to Lync Server 2013. For more information, see Coexistence with Lync Server 2013 Management Packs.
