Deactivating a Communicator Web Access Server

Communications Server 2007 R2

Topic Last Modified: 2009-02-27

As your networking infrastructure changes, you might find it necessary to decommission a Communicator Web Access server. If the decommissioning is temporary, you can deactivate the server. By deactivating the server, you leave all of the Communicator Web Access files installed and you make it easy to reactivate the server later.

All of the virtual servers created on the Communicator Web Access server must be deleted before you can deactivate a Communicator Web Access server. For details about deleting virtual servers, see Deleting a Communicator Web Access Virtual Server.

By deactivating a server, you ensure that the computer will no longer function as a Communicator Web Access server. Deactivation also removes the server from the Communicator Web Access snap-in. However, this does not delete the Communicator Web Access files from the computer. To do that, you need to uninstall the software by using either Programs and Features (that is, on Windows Server 2008) or Add or Remove Programs (that is, on Windows Server 2003).

If you want to permanently decommission the server, you should first deactivate the server, and then use Programs and Features (that is, on Windows Server 2008) or Add or Remove Programs (that is, on Windows Server 2003) to remove the software.

  1. Log on to the computer that is running the Communicator Web Access snap-in. To deactivate a server, you must log on as a member of the local Administrators group and the RTCUniversalServerAdmins.
