You can use the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Validation Wizard during or after deployment of a server role.

Server roles that you can validate include Front End Servers, Web Conferencing Servers, A/V Conferencing Servers, and Web Components Servers. Using the Validation Wizard requires that the server is activated and initial configuration tasks, such as configuring certificates and Domain Name System (DNS), have been completed.
