To successfully complete this procedure, you should be logged on to the server as minimally a local administrator and a domain user who has membership in at least the RTCUniversalReadOnlyAdmins group.

The Lync Server Deployment Wizard is used to install the components that are necessary for each server role and to activate the server. This procedure walks you through the steps of deploying the Standard Edition server or the Front End Server in your infrastructure.

To install Lync Server components

  1. If the Lync Server Deployment Wizard is not running, start it on the server that you are setting up.

  2. Click Install or Update Lync Server System.

  3. In the Deployment Wizard, verify that Step 1: Install Local Configuration Store has a green check mark, which means that the step has been completed. If it is not complete, install the Local Configuration store on the server. For details, see Install the Local Configuration Store.

  4. To install the Lync Server 2013 components for the server, click Run next to Step 2: Setup or Remove Lync Server Components.

  5. On the Set Up Lync Server Components page, click Next to set up components as defined in the published topology.

  6. The Executing Commands page displays a summary of commands and installation information as it proceeds. When finished, you can use the list to select a log to view, and then click View Log.

  7. When Lync Server 2013 components setup completes, click Finish.

    If you are prompted to restart the computer (which may be required if Windows Desktop Experience was not already installed on the computer), do so. When the computer is back up and running, repeat this procedure, starting from step three (run Step 2 in the Deployment Wizard again).
