To remove the Monitoring Server, you need to change or clear the dependency on the associated Front End pool, Front End Server, Survivable Branch Appliance and Survivable Branch Server. You edit the properties of the Front End pool, Front End Server, Survivable Branch Appliance and Survivable Branch Server to remove the dependency. After you clear the dependency and delete the server in Topology Builder, you are notified that the associated database store object in Topology Builder will also be deleted.

To remove the Monitoring Server association

  1. Log on to the computer where Topology Builder is installed as a member of the Domain Admins group and the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group.

  2. Start Topology Builder: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Topology Builder.

  3. When Topology Builder prompts you to select the source of the Lync Server 2010 topology documents, select Download Topology from existing deployment, and then Click OK.

  4. In Save Topology As, type a name for the topology document in File name, and then click Save.

  5. In Topology Builder, expand Enterprise Edition Front End pools, Standard Edition Front End Servers, or Branch sites, based on where the Monitoring Server is defined.

  6. If you have Survivable Branch Server associated, expand Branch sites, expand the branch site name, and then expand Survivable Branch Appliances.

    Survivable Branch Appliances in the user interface applies to both Survivable Branch Server and Survivable Branch Appliance.
  7. Right-click the pool, server, or device that is associated with the Monitoring Server, and then click Edit Properties.

  8. In Edit Properties, under General, under Associations, clear the Associate Monitoring Server check box, and then click OK.

  9. Repeat the previous step for any other pool, server or device associated with the Monitoring Server.

  10. Right-click the Monitoring Server, and then click Delete.

  11. On Delete Dependent Stores, click OK.

  12. Publish the topology, check replication status, and run the Lync Server Deployment Wizard as needed.
