Remove Lync Server 2010 Files from Servers (Except Central Management Server)

Lync Server 2010
 

Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-12

You must perform the following steps on each computer on which a Microsoft Lync Server 2010 server role was installed, EXCEPT FOR the Central Management Server. To remove Lync Server 2010 files specific to the server role, run the Lync Server Deployment Wizard. The Lync Server Deployment Wizard removes Lync Server 2010 files, except for the Lync Server 2010, Core Components which are used by the Lync Server Deployment Wizard. Remove the Lync Server 2010, Core Components after the Lync Server Deployment Wizard has finished.

warningWarning:
Do not remove the Lync Server 2010, Core Components from the server that holds the Central Management Server role.
importantImportant:
When you remove a role or change the configuration of a computer in Lync Server Deployment Wizard, the changes must replicate to the servers in your topology. If the replication is not complete, the Lync Server Deployment Wizard may not remove the files and deactivate the server. You must confirm that replication has been successful before proceeding. For details, see Confirm Local Configuration Store Replication Status.
noteNote:
The following files, which are not specific to Lync Server 2010, will not be removed:
  • Microsoft Server Speech Recognition Language files

  • Microsoft Server Speech Text to Speech Voice files

  • Microsoft SQL Server files

  • Microsoft Unified Communications API 3.0 files

  • Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable

  • Visual J# 2.0 Redistributable

  • Windows Server files such as IIS (Internet Information Server)

  • Any other files that are not specific to Lync Server 2010

For details about how to remove these files, see Remove Prerequisite Software From Lync Server.

The process of removing the installed files reverses the changes made during installation. Registry entries, most directories under the Program Files directory, and local users created by the installation of the packages are removed, which limits the amount of clean up.

  1. Log on to the local computer as a member of the Administrators group or Domain Admins group.

    noteNote:
    Log on to the computer that you want to remove from the deployment.
  2. Start the Lync Server Deployment Wizard: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Deployment Wizard.

  8. To remove the Lync Server 2010, Core Components, you Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    In rare cases, Step 2: Setup or Remove Lync Server Components is unavailable in the Lync Server Deployment Wizard. In this situation, use this procedure to remove Lync Server 2010 files.
