Failing over the Edge pool used for Lync Server federation in Lync Server 2013
Topic Last Modified: 2012-09-17
If the Edge pool where you have Lync Server federation configured goes down, you must change federation to use a different Edge pool for federation to work.
Failing Over the Edge Pool Used for Lync Server Federation
On a Front End server, open Topology Builder. Expand Edge pools, then right click the Edge server or Edge server pool that is currently configured for Federation. Select Edit properties.
In Edit Properties under General, clear Enable federation for this Edge pool (Port 5061). Click OK.
Expand Edge pools, then right click the Edge server or Edge server pool that you now want to use for Federation. Select Edit properties.
In Edit Properties under General, select Enable federation for this Edge pool (Port 5061). Click OK.
Click Action, select Topology, select Publish. When prompted on Publish the topology, click Next. When the Publish is finished, click Finish.
On the Edge server, open the Lync Server Deployment wizard. Click Install or Update Lync Server System, then click Setup or Remove Lync Server Components. Click Run Again.
At Setup Lync Server components, click Next. The summary screen will show actions as they are executed. Once the deployment is done, click View Log to view available log files. Click Finish to complete the deployment.
If the site containing the failed Edge pool contains Front End Servers that are still running, you must update the Web Conferencing Service and A/V Conferencing Service on these Front End pools to use an Edge pool in a remote site that is still running.
