IIS Requirements for Enterprise Pools and Standard Edition Servers
Topic Last Modified: 2009-03-04
For both Standard Edition servers and Enterprise pools, the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 installer creates virtual directories in IIS for the following purposes:
- To enable users to download files from the Address Book Service
- To enable computer-based clients, such as Office Communicator, to obtain updates
- To enable Web conferencing
- To enable users to download meeting content
- To enable unified communications (UC) devices to connect to Device Update Service and obtain updates
- To enable users to expand distribution groups
- To enable phone conferencing
- To enable response group features
The following table lists the URIs for the virtual directories for internal access and the file system resources to which they refer. The file system folders to which the virtual directories refer are described in Storage Requirements.
