In Office Communications Server 2007 R2, the Application Server infrastructure has no configurable post-installation settings (during installation, the RTCComponentService service account is assigned and the service is set for automatic start with a dependency on Windows Management Instrumentation [WMI]). A WMI Class exists in the LCWMI provider for Application Server settings— MSFT_SIPApplicationServerSetting—but currently there is no data store for this class.

Because Application Server is a separate Office Communications Server 2007 R2 role, at the time of activation an msRTCSIP-ApplicationServer Service Connection Point (SCP) for each Application Server-role server is published in Active Directory Domain Services separate from SCPs of the other roles, such as the Front-End services and the Conferencing Servers.
