Lync Server 2010
 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-02-02

Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat must be installed on a computer where Internet Information Services (IIS) is configured to support anonymous access to the website and uses an account that has administrator rights and permissions on the file repository folder specified during installation. The following procedure describes how to correctly configure the IIS settings.

noteNote:
For details about configuring the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates, see Configuring the Web Service IIS Certificate for Group Chat Server.

  1. Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager snap-in: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  2. In the console tree, expand the local computer, expand the Sites folder, and click the application for the website (MGCWebService).

  3. Double-click Authentication, click Anonymous Authentication, and under Actions, click Enable. Anonymous Authentication is now enabled.

  4. Again, click Anonymous Authentication, and under Actions, click Edit. In the Edit Anonymous Authentication Credentials box, select Specific user, and click Set. In the User Name and Password boxes, specify the credentials for an account that has administrator rights and permissions on the file repository folder.

  5. In the User Name and Password boxes, specify the credentials for an account that has administrator rights and permissions on the file repository folder.

    importantImportant:
    This must be an account with RTCComponentUniversalServices rights and permissions because the account needs to access the file repository and Message Queuing. You can use the Channel service account for this purpose.
