Office communicator status not updating
It turns out that it was a user profile issue where the Cisco Jabber whether it was installed or not had been set as the Default IM App Provider.

From Tech Net’s description: “More often than not, the automatic synch between the user database and Active Directory will keep the information in the user database up to date.
The ALM function is fully integrated into the Jabber Client.
Using a Custom Tab on Jabber, the user opens an ALM control screen where he can either log in or log out his desktop phone.
