Botched Publish

    Question

  • We're migrating to 2013 from 2010 and all we've done is attempted to publish the topology for the very first time. It failed as it couldn't create the backend database. No front ends installed or anything yet.

    Can we delete the added 2013 topology pieces and start anew, we're wanting to change the name of the pool, db, etc.. OR are we stuck and need to do some sort of deep cleanup in AD and the like?

    Thanks.

    1. Topology builder deploys it's configuration to the Central Management Store, not to AD.
    2. The location of the Central Management store IS stored in AD.

    So if you cleanup the Topology builder you will empty your Lync Topology stored in CMS. If you want to remove everything, I think you will like following blog post:

    You also need to remove Lync software on the server where you prepared the first standard edition (and where the CMS is installed now)

  • as Ruben Nauwelaers wrote, delete the 2013 stuff with the topology builder and publish the topology is enough. All 2013 enviroment should be deleted from the CMS. The CMS is hosted on your Lync 2010 database.

  • If the topology is not published, you don't need to delete anything.

    If some wrong configuration is publish to the AD, you can start the topology builder again and remove this entries.

    You can delete the new 2013 configuration in the topology and publish this topology.

  • Well, I think its partly published, as when I open Builder and do download from current, I see the 2013 pieces (front end, file store, database, etc)..

    So if I delete those and republish there is nothing I would need to do under the covers in AD and such?

  • Hi Esteban,

    Please try to delete Lync 2013 in topology and publish it to test first.

    If the issue persists, please delete the information in AD and try again.

    Best Regards,

    Eason Huang
