After you install the Local Configuration store on your Front End Servers, install the Lync Server 2010 components, and configure certificates on a Front End Server, you must start the Lync Server 2010 services on the server. Use the following procedure to start services on each Front End Server in your deployment.

To start services on a Front End Server

  1. In the Lync Server Deployment Wizard, on the Lync Server 2010 page, click Run next to Step 4: Start Services.

  2. On the Start Services page, click Next to start the Lync Server services on the server.

  3. On the Executing Commands page, after all services have started successfully, click Finish.

    The command to start the services on the server is a best effort method to report that the services have in fact started. It might not reflect the actual state of the service. We recommend that you use the step Service Status (Optional) immediately following Start Services to open the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) and confirm that the services have started successfully. If any Lync Server service has not started, you can right-click that service in the MMC, and then click Start.
