Installing the Communicator Web Access Snap-in

Communications Server 2007 R2

Topic Last Modified: 2009-03-06

Communicator Web Access (2007 R2 release) is not managed by using the Office Communications Server administrative tools. Instead, Communicator Web Access has its own management snap-in. The Communicator Web Access snap-in is not installed when Communicator Web Access is installed. Instead, you must install the snap-in either before or after you have installed Communicator Web Access.

Communicator Web Access snap-in does not have to be installed on a computer that is running Communicator Web Access. You can install the snap-in on an administrative computer instead of or in addition to your Communicator Web Access servers. However, the following restrictions apply:

  • Communicator Web Access snap-in can only be installed on a computer that is a member of an Active Directory forest where Office Communications Server 2007 R2 is already running.
  • Communicator Web Access snap-in can only be installed on a computer running a 64-bit version of the Windows operating system (this includes Windows Vista, as well as Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008).
  • The following software must be installed before you can install Communicator Web Access snap-in:
    • SQL Server Native Client
    • Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Service Pack 1
    • Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Core Components
    • Internet Information Services (IIS)

If you install Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Communicator Web Access 2007 R2 using the Setup wizard this prerequisite software will be installed for you. Otherwise, you will have to manually install this software before you can install Communicator Web Access snap-in.

When you install Communicator Web Access snap-in, you also install the Office Communications Server administrative tools. There is no way to install just Communicator Web Access snap-in.

You can install Communicator Web Access snap-in by using either of the following procedures:
