Step-By-Step Guide to Deploying Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition

The installation of Lync Server 2010 is a fairly task-intensive process. In this article, I will walk you through each of the tasks, at a step-by-step level, required to deploy a Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition Server lab environment. The focus of this article is the following:  Prepare the Lync 2010 Enterprise Edition Server Infrastructure o Set Up Enterprise Edition Hardware and System Infrastructure o Create Service Accounts o Install Prerequisite Software o Prepare Active Directory Domain Services for Lync Server 2010 o Grant Setup and Administration Permissions o Add DNS Records o Create the Lync File Share Define the Topology for Lync 2010 Enterprise Edition Front End Pool in Topology Builder o Configure Simple URLs Publish the Topology Setup the Lync 2010 Front End Server and Front End Pool o Install the Local Configuration Store o Install Front End Servers o Request, Install, and Assign Certificates o Start Services Install Monitoring and Archiving o Install the Local Configuration Store o Setup the Monitoring and Archiving Server o Start Services o Deploy Monitoring Server Reports

Lab Overview
The lab that I will be building in this article is fairly straightforward. There are four servers in this lab – the domain controller, an Enterprise Edition Front End Server, a SQL Server Back End Server, and a Monitoring/Archiving Server. The domain controller has the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) and DNS Server roles installed. The Enterprise Edition Front End Server has Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition installed. The Back End Server has SQL Server 2008 SP1 installed. The Monitoring/Archiving Server has Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition and SQL Server 2008 SP1 installed. The following figure provides an overview of this lab environment.

The lab environment that I am building in this article will provide internal IM and Presence, as well as Monitoring and Archiving. There are no additional features that the lab will provide upon the completion of these steps. However, additional features can be added thereafter. I did have some specific requirements when I built this lab, which translated to some additional configuration. These include:     The back-end database needs to be on a dedicated named instance as opposed to the default instance. The Monitoring Server role and the Archiving Server role need to be collocated on the same server. The Monitoring and Archiving databases need to be separated from the back-end database; I decided to host these databases on the Monitoring/Archiving Server. The Monitoring and Archiving databases need to be installed on separate, dedicated named instances.
