Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Security Guide about the role of Active Directory Domain Services in Windows Server networks, see the documentation for the version of the operating system you are using. Lync Server 2010 uses Active Directory Domain Services to store: Global settings that all servers running Lync Server 2010 in a forest require. Service information that identifies the roles of all servers running Lync Server 2010 in a forest. Some user settings. Active Directory Infrastructure Infrastructure requirements for Active Directory include the following: Operating system requirements for domain controllers Domain and forest functional level requirements Global catalog domain requirements For details, see Active Directory Infrastructure Requirements in the Deployment documentation. Active Directory Domain Services Preparation Note: We recommend that you deploy global settings to the Configuration container instead of the System container. This does not enhance security, but can result in scalability improvements for some Active Directory Domain Services topologies. If you are migrating from Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and have used the System container but plan to use the Configuration container, you MUST move the settings in the System container BEFORE you do any upgrade preparations. To migrate your System container settings to the Configuration container, see Office Communications Server 2007 Global Settings Migration Tool at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=145236 . When deploying Lync Server 2010, the first step is to prepare Active Directory Domain Services. Preparing Active Directory Domain Services for Lync Server 2010 consists of the following three steps: Prepare Schema . This task extends the schema in Active Directory Domain Services to include classes and attributes specific to Lync Server 2010. For details about preparing the schema, see Running Schema Preparation in the Deployment documentation. For details about the schema, see Active Directory Domain Services Reference in the Deployment documentation Prepare Forest This task creates global settings and objects in the forest root domain, along with the universal service and administrative groups that govern access to these settings and objects. For details about preparing the forest, see Running Forest Preparation in the Deployment documentation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
