Supported Server Role Collocation (2007 R2 Beta)

[This is preliminary documentation and is subject to change. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

This section identifies the Office Communications Server components that can be collocated on the same computer and the components that explicitly cannot be collocated. Any combination that is not identified has not been tested and is not supported.

The following table identifies the Office Communications Server roles that can and cannot be collocated. In addition to the server roles identified in the table, the following collocation scenarios are explicitly not supported for Office Communications Server 2007 R2:

  • Any server role on an Active Directory domain controller
  • Exchange UM and Office Communications Server
