Walk Through – Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Voice Functionality (Part 9 – I)

Hi Lets continue the deployment of Lync.

Today I’m going to talk about how to configure Enterprise Voice function and it will cover below function in Lync Server 2010. This will break into 2 parts.

Part I

  1. Edit the topology to include the PSTN gateways.
  2. Publish the new topology.
  3. Create Dial Plans
  4. Create Normalization Rules

Part II

  1. Configuring Voice Policies and PSTN Usages
  2. Configuring Routes and Site Trunks
  3. Configuring Call Park
  4. Configuring the Unassigned Numbers Feature
  5. Configuring Users for Enterprise Voice
  6. Testing and Verifying Enterprise Voice Functionality

OK… let start!!

On the Lync FE, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Topology Builder. On the Topology Builder page, click Download topology from existing deployment, and then click “OK”

In the Save Topology As window, save the file on the Desktop as EV.tbxml, and then
click Save.

Walk Through – Lync Server 2010 & Exchange Server 2010 OWA Integration (Part 8)

 

last post, we finish off the deployment of the Lync server. now I going to walk through the integration of Lync and Exchange 2010 OWA. so that you can IM using OWA and also see the presence of the users.

Since the Exchange and Lync server that we installed is using Windows Server 2008 R2, we must install the UCMA 2.0 and OCS 2007 R2 web services. to do this, we need to download some files

UCMA 2.0 : http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=198175 (this is a Unified Communications Managed API 2.0 Core runtime)

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Web Service Provider : http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=199440 (this content four files after you unzip: CWAOWAASSP.msi, Donnetfx35setup.exe, UcamRedist.msi and vcredist_x64.exe.

PrtScr capture_3

Lastly, OCS 2007 R2 Hotfix Web Service Provider : http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=199437

PrtScr capture_2

Once you have downloaded all the files, we can start to do the installation and integration.

First, we start with UCMA 2.0

Double click the setup file for UcmaRuntime.exe, and click “Run”

PrtScr capture_4

Click “Install”

Second, install the OCS 2007 R2 Web Services. go to the folder “Web Service Provider Package Installer”, by default packages are extracted to the folder C: \ Web Service Provider Package Installer.

you are require to run the service in command prompt as administrator.

PrtScr capture_5

Locate the file CWAOWAASSP.msi and execute it.

PrtScr capture_6

after installed. we run the CWAOWASSP.msp hotfix.

PrtScr capture_7

after all installation is done. now, power up the Exchange Management Shell. and enter the following command.

Get-ExchangeCertificate | fl

PrtScr capture_8

and look for Thumbprint field with IIS service and copy the result to a notepad. also remember the Certificate Subject, when we configure the list of authorized hosts in Lync Server will have to configure the Certificate Subject to the name of the authorized host and create the Trusted Application Pool with this name.

image

In Exchange Management Shell commands are run

Get-OwaVirtualDirectory | Set-OwaVirtualDirectory-InstantMessagingServerName Name> Server Lync> InstantMessagingCertificateThumbprint <Thumbprint-Client Certificate Access> $ True-InstantMessagingEnabled InstantMessagingType-1

PrtScr capture_12

after we have run the command, do a iisreset.

PrtScr capture_13

next is Lync turn.

go to Lync Server, open the Lync Management Shell and run Get-CSSite

PrtScr capture_14

take note of the Site ID.

next, we create the Trusted Application in Lync Server. you can create using Power Shell or Topology Builder.

New-CsTrustedApplicationPool –Identity <Certificate Subject Name of Client Access> –ThrottleAsServer $true -TreatAsAuthenticated  $true -ComputerFQDN <FQDN Server Exchenge> –Site <SiteID> –Registrar <Lync Pool Server> –RequiresReplication $ false

after that, run Enable-CsTopology to apply the setting.

Next, is to configure the ports. this port can be any available port

New-CsTrustedApplication -ApplicationId <application name> -TrustedApplicationPoolFqdn Name> Certificate Subject Name of Client Access> -Port <port number>

PrtScr capture_17

run last time of Enable-CsTopology.

you may also want to reference to http://blog.schertz.name/2010/11/lync-and-exchange-im-integration/

Now, login to Exchange OWA. you will be able to see the presence of the user and you can also IM to the user.

That all for now, see you next time!!

Walk Through – Lync Server 2010 Deployment (Part 4)

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)

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_5

Here right click the “Lync Server 2010” –> “Edit Properties”

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_6

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.

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_7

fill in the missing fields indicate at the left panel.

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_8

once done, it should look like the screen below.

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_9

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.

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_24

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.

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_11

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.

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_12

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

MIA-LS on HOST2 - Virtual Machine Connection_26

we will stop here and will continue next post.
