I my prevoius post we installed the first frontend server and started the services for the first time.
As with all new Lync Servers it’s very important to keep the updated with the latest fix from Microsoft
So lets start by updating the first frontend server with CU2 (http://exchangepro.dk/updates/lync/lync-2013-updates/).
Download the “LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe”
Right click on the file and select “Run as administrator”
Click “Install Updates”
Click NO to reboot
Close the Update
After an Lync update has been installed, the Lync databases needs to be updated.
This is done this way:
Right click on Powershell and select “Rune as Administrator”
Because we have deployed a SQL 2012 mirroring cluster there is a little bit more work to do:
First we drop the databases on the mirror server
Uninstall-CsMirrorDatabase -DatabaseType Application -SqlServerFQDN SQL01.exchangepro.local -SqlInstanceName RTC -DropExistingDatabasesOnMirror –Verbose
Then we update the databases on the primary SQL server
Install-CsDatabase -ConfiguredDatabases -SqlServerFqdn SQL01.exchangepro.local –Verbose
The we install the mirror database again
Install-CsMirrorDatabase -DatabaseType Application -SqlServerFQDN SQL01.exchangepro.dk -SqlInstanceName RTC -FileShare \exchangepro.localLyncFileStore -Verbose
Update the CMS database
Install-CsDatabase -CentralManagementDatabase -SqlServerFqdn SQL01.exchangepro.local -SqlInstanceName RTC -Verbose
On a standard frontend server the below commands is the only one that is needed:
Install-CsDatabase -ConfiguredDatabases -Update -SqlServerFqdn sql01.exchangepro.local
After a couple of minutes when the database update is finished, you can reboot the server.
When the server has rebooted, you should run windowsupdate and install all updates from Microsoft, includes updates for SQL Server 2012.
When the server is updated, we are now ready to create our first user in Lync.
We start by creating the account in AD.
Give your Account a name
And a Password
Now open Lync Server Control Panel
Ups we forgot the Silverlight
Click on the Link and install Silverlight
Back in the Lync Server Control Panel hit F5.
Navigate to Users
Click on Enable Users
Type the account you created before and click Find
Select the account and click OK
Select the frontend pool name
Because the test account don’t have an mailbox yet, I select that the SIP address should be the SAMAccountName@exchangepro.dk
Click on Enable
Your first Lync Account has now been created
Now lets try the Lync Client
Ups, my test computer don’t trust my certificate from the lab
I will need to install the root certificate in my computer
I will install the root certificates in “Trusted Root Certification Authorities” in the local computer store.
Back in the Lync Client I now get a prompt for password, which I expected because my computer is in another domain:
And bingo, we are signed in:
In the next posts we will continue to install more Lync Servers, and configure Lync.
