Deployment of Microsoft Lync Server 2010 requires the use of Topology Builder to define and publish the topology design. To identify the components required for your topology, you use Topology Builder to create and save a topology design. To publish and enable the topology, you need the internal servers to be represented by computer accounts in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). This is accomplished by joining the computers to AD DS. You also must have the file share created, and the person publishing the topology must have permissions to access the file share. For SQL Server setup to succeed, the SQL Server-based server must be online and the person publishing the topology must have permissions to access the instance that Topology Builder is setting up.
