Find out how many users are connected in Lync Server 2010

In OCS it was really simple to see how many OCS clients / users were connected to the pool and the version numbers of each client as well as the total number of enabled users.

To get the number of clients connected in Lync 2010, you need to do it via performance counters on the SQL server. Look at the SQLServer:User Settable performance counters for the backend SQL instance and add ‘user counter 1’ – this has the number of currently connected users.

To find the total number of Lync enabled users, use the “Get-CsUser -Filter {Enabled -eq $true} | Measure” Powershell cmdlet.

This seems to be another one of those things that was so easy in OCS but seems so much more difficult in Lync.
