Complete the tasks in this section at the central site. If you’re deploying a Survivable Branch Server, skip the first task.

Before you perform the tasks in this section, the following conditions must be in place:
  • Lync Server must be set up at the central site.

  • An installation technician at the branch site must be added to the RTCUniversalSBATechnicians group.

In addition, we recommend that you do the following:
  • Deploy a DHCP server at each branch site to enable clients to obtain IP addresses.

  • As an alternative to deploying a DHCP server at each branch site, enable Lync Server DHCP on the Survivable Branch Appliance or Survivable Branch Server by using the Lync Server Management Shell cmdlet Set-CsRegistrarConfiguration –EnableDHCPServer $true. For details, see the “Hardware and Software Requirements” section of Branch-site resiliency requirements in the Planning documentation.
