You can use LCSCmd.exe to install and activate three Edge Server roles in the perimeter: the Access Edge Server, A/V Edge Server, and Web Conferencing Edge Server. You can activate each server role together or you can activate individual server roles on different servers. Office Communications Server 2007 R2 requires that all of these server roles be consolidated on the same Edge Server.

Use the following syntax example to install Edge Servers.

Copy Code
LCSCmd.exe /Server[:<Server FQDN>] /Action:Activate
/Components:{AP,DP,MR} /Password:<Account Password> /Role:AP
[/User:<Account Name>] [/RefDomain:<Domain FQDN>]
[/PDCRequired[:{TRUE|FALSE}]] [/GlobalSettingsDC:<FQDN of a
global settings domain controller>]  [/DC:<domain controller
FQDN>] [/GC:<Global Catalog FQDN>] [/Global:{Configuration
| System}] [/GroupDomain:<Group Domain FQDN>]
[/GroupDomainDC:<Group Domain domain controller FQDN>]
[/User:<Account Name>]  [/NoStart[:{TRUE|FALSE}]]
[/Force[:{TRUE|FALSE}]] [/L:<log file path>]

Such as:

Copy Code
LCSCmd.exe /Server /Action:Activate /Role:AP /Components:AP,DP
/Password: My$tr0ngPwd
