The changes you can make to a server role are governed by the configuration that is implemented in Topology Builder and then published to the Central Management store. Each server role has a local read-only copy of the Central Management store, which is updated with changes from the writable copy of the Central Management store by way of the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Replica Replicator Agent.
If you have made changes to a role or have removed a server completely, the changes must be published and replicated to the local configuration management service on each server. To confirm that the local replica is up to date and has replicated the changes made to the Central Management store, use either Lync Server Control Panel or the Lync Server Management Shell.
To confirm replication status in Lync Server Control Panel
Log on to the computer where Lync Server Control Panel is installed as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group or with the necessary user rights as described in Delegate Setup Permissions.
Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.
In the left navigation bar, click Topology.
In Status, under the Replication column, note the status of the deployed servers. A green check mark indicates that the server is consistent with the Central Management store, and a red X indicates that the server’s local configuration store is not in sync with the Central Management store.
Important: Some members of the topology display a status of N/A. These are components (for example, PSTN gateways) or servers (for example, the Back End Server in an Enterprise Edition deployment) that do not have a local configuration store and do not participate in the replication process. Tip: If you have made a recent change, such as publishing an updated topology, the servers need time to replicate the changes. Click the Refresh button in Lync Server Control Panel (that is, do not press Refresh or the F5 function key for a refresh of the Web browser) until the server replication status appears as a green check mark. Depending on the network connections and the load of servers, this may take time to fully sync all servers with the replicated updates.
To confirm replication status using the Lync Server Management Shell
Log on to the computer where Lync Server Management Shell is installed as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group or with the necessary user rights as described in Delegate Setup Permissions.
Open the Lync Server Management Shell and then type the following:
The command outputs the status of servers in the deployment. If the UpToDate value is True, the local replica of the Central Management store is in sync. If the UpToDate value is False, the local replica is not yet in sync with the Central Management store.
Warning: If the value of the UpToDate value is false, you can recheck the replication status by reissuing the Get-CsManagementStoreReplicationStatus command. Do this by either retyping the command into the Lync Server Management Shell, or use the command history of the Lync Server Management Shell by pressing the Up Arrow key on the numeric keypad and pressing enter when Get-CsManagementStoreReplicationStatus appears at the prompt.
