The Lync Server Deployment Wizard uses the configuration file generated by Topology Builder to install the necessary files and set up the Archiving Server.

If the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable and the Visual J# version 2.0 Redistributable are not already installed on the computer, the installation wizard prompts you to automatically install them. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1, Message Queuing, Windows PowerShell version 2.0, and Windows Installer version 4.5 must already be installed on the server that you are deploying as the Archiving Server, and SQL Server must already be installed on the server on which you want the archiving database server to reside. The following procedure assumes that all the prerequisite software has already been installed. For details about prerequisite software installation, see Installing Lync Server 2010 Prerequisite Software.

To install an Archiving Server

  1. On the computer on which you want to install Archiving Server, log on using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group, is a domain user account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, and has access permission for the SQL instance for the Archiving database (or an account with equivalent user rights).

  2. Start the Lync Server Deployment Wizard from the Lync Server installation media.

  3. On the first page of the Lync Server Deployment Wizard, specify the installation location (by default, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010).

  4. On the License Agreement page, review the license agreement, select the I accept the terms in the license agreement check box to proceed, and then click OK.

  5. On the Welcome page, click Install or Update Lync Server System.

  6. In Step 1: Install Local Configuration Store, click Run.

    The Lync Server Deployment Wizard reads the configuration information from the Central Management store, which you defined using Topology Builder, and writes the XML configuration file to the local computer.
  7. On the Configure Local Replica of Central Management Store page, click Retrieve directly from the Central Management Store (Requires read access to the Central Management Store).

  8. In Step 2: Setup or Remove Lync Server Components, click Run.

    The Lync Server Deployment Wizard installs the Lync Server components specified in the XML configuration file stored on the local computer.
  9. Skip Step 3: Request, Install or Assign Certificates, because there are no certificate requirements for the Archiving Server.

  10. In Step 4: Start Services, click Run.

    Before you start the services, verify that the LcsLog database was correctly created in the SQL Server instance you specified for Archiving Server.
  11. Click Exit.

  12. When the installation completes, click Finish.
