Phase 9: Deprecate Servers
Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 will reach end of support on January 9, 2018. To stay supported, you will need to upgrade. For more information, see Resources to help you upgrade your Office 2007 servers and clients.
As you move users from a pool, you can deactivate and remove the Live Communications Server Front End Servers on the pool. After you have moved the last user from the pool, you can also remove the databases from the Back-End Database Server. As other server roles are removed from service, you can deactivate and remove the Live Communications Server 2005 software. For details, see Starting and Stopping Services and Deactivating Server Roles in the Administering Office Communications Server 2007 R2 documentation and “Deprecate Your Live Communications Server 2005 SP1 Servers” at https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=148538.
