For this example, the Monitoring and Archiving stores are collocated on the same instance as the Front End pool. The figure shows the Front End pool and the Monitoring and Archiving pools as dependent pools sharing the same SQL Server instance, rtc. When you modify the topology exported from the Planning Tool into Topology Builder, you must specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for both the Monitoring and Archiving Servers.

To edit FQDN for Monitoring and Archiving Servers
  1. Start Topology Builder: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Topology Builder.

  2. From Topology Builder and with the Redmond.tbxml open from the previous procedure, expand the Redmond node, and then expand the Monitoring Servers node.

  3. Right-click the default Archiving and Monitoring Server entry, and then click Edit Properties.

  4. Enter the FQDN of the Monitoring Server, and then click OK.

    In this example, the Monitoring and Archiving Servers are collocated on the same computer and thus share the same FQDN. When Monitoring Server and Archiving Server are collocated, their databases can be hosted on that same server as well, or located together on another server, or separated onto different database servers. For details about collocating Monitoring Server and Archiving Server, see Planning for Monitoring.
