Prepare Domain . This task adds the necessary access control entries (ACEs) to universal groups that grant permissions to host and manage users within the domain. This task must be completed in all domains where you want to deploy servers running Lync Server 2010 and any domains where your Lync Server users reside. For details about preparing the domain, see Running Domain Preparation in the Deployment documentation. 9

Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Security Guide For an overview of the complete process for preparing Active Directory and the rights and permissions required to perform each step, see Active Directory Infrastructure Requirements in the Deployment documentation. Universal Groups During preparation of the forest, Lync Server 2010 creates various universal groups within Active Directory Domain Services that have permission to access and manage global settings and services. These universal groups include: Administrative groups . These groups define the fundamental administrator roles for an Lync Server network. During forest preparation, these administrator groups are added to Lync Server infrastructure groups. Service groups . These groups are service accounts that are required to access various services provided by Lync Server. Infrastructure groups . These groups provide permission to access specific areas of the Lync Server infrastructure. They function as components of administrative groups, and you should not modify them or add users to them directly. During forest preparation, specific service and administration groups are added to the appropriate infrastructure groups For details about the specific universal groups created when preparing AD for Lync Server, as well as the service and administration groups that get added to the infrastructure groups, see Changes Made by Forest Preparation in the Deployment documentation. Note: Lync Server 2010 supports the universal groups in the Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008 for servers running Lync Server 2010, as well as Windows Server 2003 operating systems for domain controllers. Members of universal groups can include other groups and accounts from any domain in the domain tree or forest and can be assigned permissions in any domain in the domain tree or forest. Universal group support, combined with administrator delegation, simplifies the management of a Lync Server deployment. For example, it is not necessary to add one domain to another to enable an administrator to manage both. Role-Based Access Control In addition to creating universal service and administration groups and adding service and administration groups to the appropriate universal groups, forest preparation also creates role- based access control (RBAC) groups. For details about the specific RBAC groups created by forest preparation, see Changes Made by 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.
