Installing the Monitoring Server
Topic Last Modified: 2010-11-08
The Lync Server Deployment Wizard uses the configuration file generated by Topology Builder to install the files required for Monitoring Server.
To install a Monitoring Server
On the computer on which you want to install Monitoring Server, log on using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group, is a domain user account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, and has access permission for the SQL instance for the Monitoring database (or an account with equivalent user rights).
Start the Lync Server Deployment Wizard.
In the Lync Server Deployment Wizard, click Install or Update Lync Server System.
In Step 1: Install Local Configuration Store, click Run.
The Lync Server Deployment Wizard reads the configuration information from the Central Management store, which you defined using Topology Builder, writes the XML configuration file to the local machine.
In Step 2: Setup or Remove Lync Server Components, click Run.
The Lync Server Deployment Wizard installs the Lync Server components specified in the XML configuration file stored on the local machine.
If you are running Monitoring Server as a stand-alone server role on the computer, you can skip Step 3: Request, Install or Assign Certificates. There are no special certificate requirements for the deploying Monitoring Server.
In Step 4: Start Services, click Run.
Before you start the services, verify that the LcsCDR database and QoEMetrics databases were created in the SQL Server instance that you specified for Monitoring Server. The two databases are used to store call detail recording (CDR) and Quality of Experience (QoE) data.
