I am setting up a lab environment with Lync 2013, VCS 8.1 along with an EX60 and Lync 2013 client. This is a very basic setup (no VCS cluster) just to demonstrate the integration capabilities. I do not have the interoperability license installed and am running in demo mode. I currently have two issues I am hoping you can assist with.
1. I can make calls from the EX60 to the LYnc 2013 client, but only get voice on both ends. I cannot get the video to connect.
Seconded what George has said. However if you use the Lync 2010 client you can at least see video working albeit at a poor resolution and using H.263. It is NOT the Lync server you need to worry about but the Lync client, so you can run Lync 2013 as the server and Lync 2010 client. You can download a 180 trial of the 2010 client from MS.

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
1) Login into the CLI of the Publisher.
