Topic Last Modified: 2015-04-09
You can download the Microsoft Lync Room System Administrative Web Portal from the Microsoft Download Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=324044.
To install the Lync Room System Administrative Web Portal, use the following steps.
Configure the Trusted Application Port by running the following cmdlet in Lync Server Management Shell:
Set-CsWebServer -Identity POOLFQDN -MeetingRoomAdminPortalInternalListeningPort 4456 -MeetingRoomAdminPortalExternalListeningPort 4457
To install the Meeting Room Portal, download LyncRoomAdminPortal.exe and then run it as an administrator.
Open the Web.config file from the following location:
%Program Files%\Microsoft Lync Server 2013\Web Components\Meeting Room Portal\Int\Handler\
In the Web.Config file, change the PortalUserName to the username created in Step 2 under the section “Configuring Prerequisites for Lync Room System Admin Portal” (the recommended name in the step is LRSApp):
<add key="PortalUserName" value="sip:LRSApp@domain.com" />
Because the LRS Admin Portal is a trusted application, you do not need to provide the password in the portal configuration. If this user is using a different registrar than local registrar, you need to specify the registrar for it by adding the following line in the Web.Config file:
<add key="PortalUserRegistrarFQDN" value="pool-xxxx.domain.com" />
If the port used is other than 5061, add the following line in the Web.Config file:
<add key="PortalUserRegistrarPort" value="5061" />
