To install the administrative tools on a computer running Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or on another computer, such as a management console from which you want to centrally manage Office Communications Server 2007 R2 servers and users, you can use the Deployment Wizard to install the administrative tools, including Response Group Service and Communicator Web Access. For a description of each of these tools, see Administrative Consoles in the Planning and Architecture documentation.
