Complete the following tasks at the central site. If you’re deploying a Survivable Branch Server, skip the first task.

Before you perform the tasks in this section, the following conditions must be in place:
  • Microsoft Communications Server 2010 must be set up at the central site.

  • An installation technician at the branch site must be added to the RTCUniversalSBATechnicians group.

In addition, we recommend that you do the following:
  • Deploy a DHCP server at each branch site to enable clients to obtain an IP addresses.

  • Enable clients to discover the Survivable Branch Appliance or Survivable Branch Server through DHCP, in case DNS is not available. For more information see the section “Hardware and Software Requirements,” in Branch-Site Resiliency Requirements, in the Planning Guide.
