A Lync Server 2010 pilot stack includes a Front End pool or a Standard Edition server, an Edge Server, and a Director. When migrating an Office Communications Server 2007 deployment to Lync Server 2010, you deploy the Edge Server and Director concurrently with the pool deployment. Therefore, when merging a legacy Office Communications Server 2007 deployment that includes an Edge Server, the setting This Access Edge is used for federation and public IM connectivity should be selected, provided that server is configured for federation and public IM connectivity. For details, see Deploy Lync Server 2010 Pilot Stack.
