You can use LCSCmd.exe to prepare and deploy AD DS. This is accomplished through actions in the following contexts:
- Forest – Prepare the Active Directory forest for Office
Communications Server, the schema-naming context, and the
- Domain – Prepare and create permissions for a domain, or
several domains, to host Office Communications Server and check the
validity of those actions.
- Server – Activate, check, deactivate, or perform diagnostics on
a computer or server acting in an Office Communications Server
Actions relating to AD DS must be performed against a specific domain. By default the action will take place locally. If you'd like to specify a different domain, follow the context with the FQDN. For example, to specify a domain when working with domain actions, use this syntax.
LCSCmd /domain:<FQDN> /action:<action>
