Configuring the Compliance Service for Group Chat Server

Lync Server 2010
 

Topic Last Modified: 2011-07-13

After completing of the Group Chat Server setup wizard, the Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat Configuration tool wizard opens, which you use to set up the Compliance service.

  1. On the Installed Services page, click Next.

  2. On the Group Chat Database page, perform the following steps:

    • In the Server box, specify the server on which the Microsoft SQL Server database was created for Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat (for example, groupchat.contoso.com\sqlserver2008.

    • In the Database box, specify the name of the database instance (for example, groupchatdb).

      noteNote:
      This information should be the same as the information entered for the Lookup service, Channel service, and Web service. The installer must locate the primary Microsoft Lync 2010 Group Chat database so that it can retrieve shared settings that are needed for this phase of the deployment.
  3. Click Next.

  4. On the Compliance Database page, perform the following steps:

    • To use the same server that contains the non-compliance database, select Use Group Chat Database for compliance data.

    • To use a dedicated database, type the location in the Server\instance box, and type the database name in the Database box. Leave the Use Group Chat Database for compliance data check box clear (that is, do not select this check box).

  5. Click Next.

  6. On the Database Settings page, review the information about the state of the Lync 2010 Group Chat and compliance databases, and the Group Chat Server services, and then click Next.

  7. On the Compliance Server page do the following:

    • Under Windows Service Credentials, specify the user name and password for the service account, which must be a member of RTCComponentUniversalServices (for example, lolaj@contoso.com).

    • Under Configured Adapters, select the appropriate adapter from the provided list, or add a new adapter by clicking Add.

      Compliance adapters are required to archive compliance data in a folder. After clicking Add, the New Compliance Adapter dialog box opens.

      noteNote:
      Group Chat Server currently supports the following compliance adapters: Akonix, Assentor, Facetime, and the default. The default adapter type is XML, which does not require any custom configuration.
  8. In the New Compliance Adapter dialog box, do the following:

    • In Name, specify a name for the compliance adapter.

    • In Output Directory, click Browse to navigate to the location where you want to store the XML files generated by the compliance adapters.

      noteNote:
      The Compliance service account must have administrator rights and permissions (read and write) to access this folder.
    • Under Options, do the following:

      • To place the output in separate files for each channel that has activity during the specified time interval instead of in one large file for all channels, under Options, select the Produce separate output files for each channel check box.

      • To create a separate file to record what files are uploaded or downloaded from Group Chat Server channels during the time interval, select the Produce additional output files to record file upload/download events check box.

      • To perform additional queries against the Group Chat database, select the Requires full user details from non-compliance database check box. This action fills in more details for each user mentioned in the output file. It decreases performance on the Compliance service in favor of having more information in the output file.

      • To run additional queries against the Group Chat database, select the Requires full channel details from non-compliance database check box. This action fills in more details for each chat room that is mentioned in the output file. It decreases performance on the Compliance service in favor of having more information in the output file.

    • To edit the configuration of the adapter, click Edit Custom Configuration.

      noteNote:
      This configuration should either be left blank, or it should contain a valid XSLT transformation script that will manipulate the standard XML output into the text output of your own design. To produce the standard XML output, leave the configuration blank.
    • In the Conversation interval in minutes box, specify the length of a conversation for this adapter. Each output file will contain a set of chat messages spanning the specified conversation interval. To minimize the number of compliance output files, specify a longer conversation interval.

    • Click OK.

  9. Click Next.

  10. In the Compliance Server page, which refreshes with the new adapters added, click Next.

  11. In the Installation Summary page, which lists the components of the installation, click Finish.

  12. In the Installation Complete page, which contains the message <compliance account> is granted log on as a service, click Close.
