Lync Server 2013
 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-19

Before deploying Lync Server 2013 in a coexistence state with Lync Server 2010, you need to verify that Lync Server 2010 services have been configured and started. It is important to identify key services and features that exist in your legacy environment, prior to deploying a Lync Server 2013 pilot pool. Before deploying Microsoft Lync Server 2013 XMPP in a coexistence state with a legacy XMPP deployment, you need to verify the legacy XMPP services have been configured and started, and identify which federated partner the legacy XMPP configuration is supporting. Verifying your legacy Lync Server 2010 deployment entails the following:

  • Verifying the Lync Server 2010 services are started

  • Reviewing the topology and users in Lync Server 2010.

  • Verifying the federation and Edge server settings.

  • Verifying XMPP services and federated partners.

Verify Lync Server 2010 Services are started
  1. From the Lync Server 2010 Front End Server, navigate to the Administrative Tools\Services applet.

  2. Verify that the following services are running on the Front End Server:
