After deploying Lync Server 2013, a federation route for this site is not configured. In order to use the federated route that is being used by Office Communications Server 2007 R2, Lync Server 2013 must be configured to use this route.

To enable the Lync Server 2013 site to use the Director and Edge Server of the BackCompatSite, use Topology Builder to associate the legacy Edge pool.

To associate the legacy Edge pool by using Topology Builder

  1. Open the pilot pool topology in Topology Builder.

  2. Select your Lync Server 2013 site.

  3. On the Action menu, click Edit Properties.

  4. Under Site federation route assignment, select Enable SIP federation, and then select the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Director, or the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Edge Server if no Director is listed.

    Edit Properties dialog, Federation route page

  5. Click OK to close the Edit Properties page.

  6. In Topology Builder, under the Lync Server 2013 node, navigate to the Standard Edition server or Enterprise Edition Front End pools, right-click the pool, and then click Edit Properties.

  7. Under Associations, select the check box next to Associate Edge pool (for media components).

  8. From the list, select the Edge Server interface for the BackCompatSite.

    Edit Properties dialog, General page

  9. Click OK to close the Edit Properties page.

  10. In Topology Builder, select the top-most node, Lync Server.

  11. From the Action menu, click Publish Topology, and then click Next.
