The “Default Policy” is the active global policy applied at the forest level with the standard setup of Office Communications Server 2007. This policy neither permits web conferencing or sharing of desktop and program by default. The Live Meeting options when inspected from the client end will be greyed out (Content / Share / Share a Program and Share Your Desktop).
To turn on this feature, start the OCS 2007 MMC, highlight and right-mouse click on the forest. Select Global Properties, Meetings tab, locate Default Policy (under Policy Definition) and click Edit. Check the “Enable web conferencing” option (if not already done) then put a tick against “Enable program and desktop sharing”. Toggle the desired radio box that applies to non-Active Directory users if needed.
On this same dialog, you can enable 2 other options “Allow presenter to record meetings” and “Enable IP audio”.
Once these steps are taken, the inaccessible options will be enabled in addition to a new, third menu option “Start Remote Desktop Sharing” on the Live Meeting client.
