Prior to deploying the Lync Server 2013 pilot pool, you must update the DNS Host A entries for the pilot pool. To successfully complete this procedure, you should be logged on to the server or domain at minimum as a member of the Domain Admins group or a member of the DnsAdmins group.

To configure DNS Host A records
  1. On the Domain Name System (DNS) server, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click DNS.

  2. In the console tree for your domain, expand Forward Lookup Zones, and then right-click the domain in which Lync Server 2013 will be installed.

  3. Click New Host (A or AAAA).

  4. Click Name, type the host name for the pool (the domain name is assumed from the zone that the record is defined in and does not need to be entered as part of the A record).

  5. Click IP Address, type the IP address for the Front End pool.

  6. Click Add Host, and then click OK.

  7. When you are finished, click Done.
