Having the access tokens updated ahead of time simply speeds up the move process later on and prevents you from having to reboot servers after Step 7 below. Lync Pool Failover To recap, Lync Server did provide primary and backup registrar pools but this was primarily to assure voice resiliency in the event of a central site failure.
Use this information only if you are going between non-paired pools within the same server version tofor example or if you are moving CMS from one server version to another tofor example. When you establish a pool pairing that includes the pool hosting the Central Management store, a backup Central Management store database is set up in the backup pool, and Central Management store services are installed in both pools.
The other counters are available for further diagnosis when problems occur. A Microsoft accredited engineer while onsite will analyze the data, review the findings, provide recommendations, focus on knowledge transfer, and build a remediation plan with your staff and your Technical Account Manager TAM.
This will drain the server, ensuring other pool members handle any new connections, and stop the Lync services once the server is fully drained. Failed to open the explicitly specified database. Important Notes so now that you understand how Lync utilize Windows Fabric and how does it work, give you some notes that you keep in mind As mentioned before Microsoft recommend using 3 front ends when deploying Enterprise pool, if you cannot deploy 3 front ends, then use two standard edition pools with pool pairing Windows Fabric is a kind of failover cluster, and it need an odd number vote like a witness-servers to maintain the Pool-level quorum According to TechNetfollowing table show the total number of Front ends needed to be running in a pool to maintain the Pool-Level quorum Lync server still need SQL backend, and if for any reason the SQL backend is unavailable, Lync Front Ends goes into survivable mode after 30 minutes.
Master changes cannot be made while CMS is not available.
While the risk of man-in-the-middle attacks within the corporate network exists, it is relatively contained as compared to exposing the traffic to the Internet. I have preferred using the first solution. If you watch carefully enough then you can follow along with the execution of the T-SQL scripts and see the results as they happen in real-time.
We do not need to failback the CMS database anymore and it is fine to leave it running on the second Pool Lync Note that there are unauthorized errors for the webticketservice, but it looks like they have no consequence on the client.
Right now I am not going to use the dialin or the admin simple URLs in the lab. Also, an error message is displayed in the System Output Window for each service that is not installed and thus whose monitoring cannot be performed: If you watch carefully enough then you can follow along with the execution of the enablement and see the results as they happen in real-time.
Initiating a Pool Failover It's now time to test the pool failover scenario. Now that we agree on the terminology, let me give you a very short explanation of the purpose of this service: Figure Summary The import process can take a few minutes: The assumption that data centers of an enterprise are protected behind the corporate Intranet is standard.
Find the appropriate workflow iii. Then select the "Associated backup Pool" checkbox and from the drop down list, select the other FE server as shown below: Click [Finish] to start the import.
Play the welcome prompt using TTS or default music. In the picture, you can see the logging for the WebInfrastructure component, that is the most relevant for the passive authentication process Lync Store App The Windows 8 — Lync Store App works as expected, redirecting you to the AD FS forms page and then allowing you access to Lync see picture In the following image you can see the related WebInfrastructure logging Lync for IPad The IPad clients works well as the Windows store app when we deploy passive authentication.
A pair of important notes: I took my account out of the Domain Admins group, logged out, and back in using my LyncAdmin user. Adding a user account into the Domain Admins group makes changes to the way advanced security permissions are propagated and inherited by a user account.
From the source pool, user data and conference content are exported from the local storage, zipped, transferred to the target Pool, where it is unzipped and imported to local storage.
If you choose to remove the databases, log on to one of the old front end servers, open the Management Shell with UAC elevation and run one of the following PowerShell cmdlets: This process can take a few minutes the configuration file is rather large.
If the pool hosting the Central Management store fails over, the Central Management store is failed over as well. Conference content includes Microsoft PowerPoint uploads, as well as whiteboards used in conferences. The Backup Service ensure that all the necessary information in one pool pair is replicated to the other pool pair.
If you watch carefully enough then you can follow along with the execution of the move and see the results as they happen in real-time. Along future posting here I will go more in details about each steps how to configure, how to manage and how to read the traces and understand problems.
It is usually c: Dave Simm's Blog Welcome to my tech blog. Step 6 — Update Topology Once the databases are successfully installed, topology must be updated to prepare for the new CMS location.At Lync Active, we believe in the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle.

I also found the following errors in the application event log Login failed for user 'OS\ltgov2018.com'. Reason: Failed to open the explicitly specified database. On each Lync Front End there runs the ltgov2018.com service (Front End Service).
Every 60 seconds the ltgov2018.com executable will crawl Active Directory for changes (more on this in a minute). The Backup Service is a data replication mechanism introduced in Lync Server that transfers user data and conference content between two paired Front End pools continuously across two data centers for disaster recovery purposes.
Jan 07, · This existing Active Directory attribute is used by the voice components in Lync Server, for contact objects only, for the purpose of routing calls to the unified messaging auto-attendant and subscriber access numbers.
