Delegation of setup and administration has changed in Microsoft Lync Server 2010. Specific tasks still require that users performing those tasks be members of one or more specific groups, but you can now use role-based access control (RBAC) to grant privileges by assigning users to pre-defined Lync Server administrative roles.

Before you start deploying an Archiving Server, ensure that the appropriate user rights and permissions are in place, and that any users that you want to assign to a specific RBAC role have been assigned to that role. For details about the user rights, permissions, and roles for deploying an Archiving Server, see Archiving Deployment Overview, which is available in the Planning documentation and the Deployment documentation. For details about RBAC, see Role-Based Access Control in the Planning documentation.
