Each time you use Topology Builder to build your topology, you must publish the topology to a database in the Central Management store so that the data can be used to deploy Lync Server 2013. Use the following procedure to publish your topology.

To publish the topology

  1. Start Topology Builder: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2013, and then click Lync Server Topology Builder.

  2. In Topology Builder, in the console tree, right-click Lync 2013, and then click Publish Topology.

  3. On the Welcome page of the wizard, click Next.

  4. On the Topology Builder found a CMS store page, click Next.

  5. On the Create other databases page, click Next.

  6. When the status indicates that database creation succeeded, do the following:

    • To view the log, click View log.

    • To close the wizard, click Finish.

      If this is a new installation of an Edge Server or Edge pool, you must export the Edge Server configuration from an existing Front End Server, Front End pool, or Standard Edition server. To export the configuration, see Export Your Topology and Copy It to External Media for Edge Installation. You will import the configuration file from the external media or network share during the setup and deployment phase of the Edge Servers through the Lync Server Deployment Wizard.

      Once the Edge Servers are operational and the local configuration management store database is replicating with the internal deployment, subsequent updates to the Lync Server 2013 configuration will be published and replicated to the Edge Servers.
