A Director has an inbound dependency from the Edge Server or Edge Server pool. The dependency is defined as the Next hop pool on the Edge Server configuration in Topology Builder. To remove the Director or Director pool, you must redirect the next hop dependency to another Director or a Front End Server in your deployment. For details, see Redirect the Edge Server Next Hop Server. If you do not remove the next hop dependency, an error message appears.

To delete the stand-alone Director or Director pool

  1. Log on to the computer where Topology Builder is installed as a member of the Domain Admins group and the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group.

  2. Start Topology Builder: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Topology Builder.

  3. When Topology Builder prompts you to select the source of the Lync Server 2010 topology documents, select Download Topology from existing deployment, and then click OK.

  4. In Save Topology As, type a name for the topology document in File name, and then click Save.

  5. Expand the Director pools, right-click the Director or Director pool to delete, and then click Delete.

    If you accidentally delete the wrong object and you have not published the topology yet, right-click the Lync Server 2010 node, click Download Topology, and then click Yes in Confirm Download Topology.
  6. Publish the topology, check replication status, and then run the Lync Server Deployment Wizard as needed.
