Verify Topology Information
Topic Last Modified: 2012-09-26
The first step in verifying the merge completed successfully is to view the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 topology information that you merged with Lync Server 2013. In Topology Builder, the BackCompatSite node displays the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of each Office Communications Server 2007 R2 pool and server that you merged.
In your Office Communications Server 2007 R2 environment, open the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 administrative tool and note the FQDNs of the legacy pools and servers.
In your Lync Server 2013 environment, open Topology Builder and then expand the BackCompatSite node.
Verify that the FQDNs for the pools and servers that you merge are displayed.
Note: You do not see any information in BackCompatSite for server roles that are collocated on a Front End Server or Standard Edition server. Only server roles that are required for interoperability between Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and Lync Server 2013 are shown.
You can also use Lync Server 2013 Control Panel to view your merged topology. In Lync Server 2013 Control Panel, you can see each server FQDN, pool FQDN, and site name for your merged topology. Merged servers have a Site name of BackCompatSite.
Open Lync Server 2013 Control Panel.
On the Status tab, verify that servers and pools you merged appear by looking for BackCompatSite in the Site column.
To see more detail about a merged pool, use the Get-CsPool cmdlet. In addition to the information that is available in Topology Builder and Lync Server 2013 Control Panel, this cmdlet displays the services that run on the Lync Server 2013 pool.
|When you publish the topology after running the Merge wizard in Topology Builder, conference directories are merged to Lync Server 2013. Conference directories can be verified by running the Get-CsConferenceDirectory cmdlet.|
