last week I stop at installing Topology Builder.
this week you will start the Topology Builder tool and define the default Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) domain. Your deployment must include at least one central site and can include zero to many branch sites. A site represents a geographical location of your network and is a set of computers well connected by a high-speed, low-latency network, such as a single local area network (LAN) or two networks connected by a high-speed fiber optic network. Note that Lync Server 2010 sites are a separate concept from Active Directory sites and Microsoft Exchange sites.
At the installed topology builder machine, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Topology Builder.
In the Topology Builder wizard, on the Welcome to Topology Builder page, select New Topology and then click OK. (if you follow my last few post. we have export the topology from the planning tools, so we will use the exported tbxml)
Here right click the “Lync Server 2010” –> “Edit Properties”
Lync Server 2010 requires you to set up a simple Uniform Resource Locator (URL) for the administrative website.
On the Topology Builder, in the Navigation pane, right-click Lync Server 2010 and then click Edit Properties.
On the Edit Properties page, under Simple URLs, in the Administrative access URL box, type https://admin.theunify.net
Under Central Management Server, in the Front End server to install Central Management Server on menu, select pool01.theunify.net (MIAMI) and then click OK.
fill in the missing fields indicate at the left panel.
once done, it should look like the screen below.
Publish the topology.
Each time that you use Topology Builder to build your topology, you must publish the topology to a database in the Central Management Store (CMS) so the data can be used for deployment of Lync Server 2010 servers. You will see the list of things that will be performed when running this for the first time.
a. Switch to the Topology Builder.
b. Right-click Lync Server 2010 and then click Publish Topology.
It will take a moment for the Publish Topology wizard to appear.
On the Publish the topology page, review the actions that will be performed and then click Next.
On the Create databases page, verify that MIA-SQL.theunify.net is selected and then click Next.
On the Select Central Management Server page, verify that the front end pool menu displays pool01.theunify.net MIAMI and then click Next.
Wait as the topology is published. This will take about two minutes.
On the Publishing wizard complete page, verify that all steps show as Success. Under Next steps click the link to open the to-do list.
Review the Next Steps.txt file that opens and the instructions to run local setup on each server in the list and then close Notepad.
Back on the Publishing wizard complete page, click Finish.
Close the Lync Server 2010 Topology Builder
we will stop here and will continue next post.
