Then we update the server with the latest patches from Mircosoft Update.
Then we start to install the prereq for the Lync server. They are :
Message Queuing Server
I also like to install telnet client on the server. It's nice to have.
We also need to Download the last .Net framework 4.5 http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkId=256375
and Powershell 3.0. Then we need to install Silverlight and run the windows update again.
Then we need to add this to the IIS on the frontend.
- Static Content
- Default Document
- HTTP Errors
- .NET Extensibility
- Internet Server API (ISAPI) Extensions
- ISAPI Filters
- HTTP Logging
- Logging Tools
- Windows Authentication
- Request Filtering
- Static Content Compression
- IIS Management Console
- IIS Management Scripts and Tools
- Anonymous Authentication (This is installed by default when IIS is installed.)
- Client Certificate Mapping Authentication
Then we starts the installation!
We accept the lisence and goes on.
The first we start to do is to prepare AD. Running update on Schema, Domain and Forrest. Normaly when i does that I like to stop the replication for the AD so if this goes wrong I have only messed up one server and then I can do a complete restore from the system backup that I have taken.
When that is done we can reboot and turn on the replication again so that this will push it out to the other servers.
Building the topology
We have now updated the AD and will go on. We install the tools so that we can get the topoloy up. We downloads and store a local copy.
Then we define the SQL store for the standard edition and the fileshare. Remember to define the share on the server as well and to share it to the users in AD.
A new thing on Lync server is that we can and must install the Office web apps server.
After this we are done and can now publish the topology.
The we run an install of the Lync Server2013 preview.
Time for a coffee.
Prepare the first server
The first is like Lync2010 we does install local replica of the CMS on this new frontend server.
Then we boot the server and start to Setup and remove server components.
Then we reboot the server and does the certificates.
Then we starts the services and hope they comes up.
Moveing users from old Lync2010 to Lync2013
We can use Lync Controlpanel or Powershell to move users. Since there is some new features about Lync 2013, I will show a picture that shows how move users.
first find the user you like to have as your test users.
Then choose your new pool and the users are moved.
Be aware that the users can't be a part of the domain admin or other admin groups to be moved. I will recomend that your admin users is not Lync users.
Well that was it and a bit later I will tell you all how to dedeploy Lync2010.
