View a List of Computers Running Lync Server 2010
Topic Last Modified: 2012-01-24
You can use Lync Server 2010 Control Panel to view a list of all the computers that are running Lync Server 2010 in your topology and see the service status of each. You can sort the list by computer, pool, or site.
To view a list of computers running Lync Server
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.
On the Status page, do any of the following as needed:
Sort the list by clicking the Computer, Pool, or Site column heading, and then clicking the up arrow or the down arrow.
Click Refresh to view the most up-to-date list.
Search for a specific computer by typing the computer name in the search field.
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. For security purposes, this is by design.
