Complete the tasks in this section at the central site. If you’re deploying a Survivable Branch Server, skip the first task.
Before you perform the tasks in this section, the following conditions must be in place:
Lync Server must be set up at the central site.
An installation technician at the branch site must be added to the RTCUniversalSBATechnicians group.
In addition, we recommend that you do the following:
Deploy a DHCP server at each branch site to enable clients to obtain IP addresses.
As an alternative to deploying a DHCP server at each branch site, enable Lync Server DHCP on the Survivable Branch Appliance or Survivable Branch Server by using the Lync Server Management Shell cmdlet Set-CsRegistrarConfiguration –EnableDHCPServer $true. For details, see the “Hardware and Software Requirements” section of Branch-site resiliency requirements for Lync Server 2013 in the Planning documentation.
