View Details About a Service
Topic Last Modified: 2012-01-24
You can use Lync Server Control Panel to view details about each service that is running on a specific computer in your topology. You can view the status of each service and details such as the associated databases, ports, and dependent services.
To view details for a service
From a user account that is assigned to any of the predefined administrative roles for Lync Server 2010, log on to any computer in your internal deployment. For details about the predefined administrative roles available in Lync Server 2010, see Role-Based Access Control.
Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.
In the left navigation bar, click Topology and then click Status.
In the Status page, sort or search through the list and then click the computer that you want to view.
In the View Computer Detail window, sort the list of services, if necessary, and click the service you want to view.
Do any of the following as needed:
To see the latest status of that specific service, click Get service status.
To see the details for that specific service, click Properties and then click Close.
To return to the list of all computers in your topology, click Close.
If you have Edge Servers or Edge Server pools deployed, the Edge Server will be listed, but will always display a status of N/A. This indicates that the Lync Server 2010 Control Panel knows that you have an Edge Server or Edge Server pool, but due to credentials that the Lync Server 2010 Control Panel runs under, the status cannot be retrieved. Additionally, a listing of details about the services is not available. For security purposes, this is by design.
