The following procedure describes how you can configure the Channel Server settings in the Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat Configuration tool. The configurable settings are the log level and pool communications port.
The Channel service produces a troubleshooting log file. This log file is located in the installation folder, under Logs. You can change the log level of the service dynamically without the need to restart the service.
You can also change the pool communications port. All servers in the Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat pool use the server pool to communicate with one another, sharing data and other information such as chat history and Channel service settings. The server uses the pool communications port to connect to the server pool. The default setting for this port is 8011.
