How to remove Lync 2010 Folder in Topology Builder after migration to Lync Server 2013

Answers

  • Hi there,

    well you can't remove this folder, since it is build by design to exist and remain in the Lync server 2013 topology builder, even  when performing a fresh installation of Lync server 2013. I believe this is for backward compatibility and for the fact that you can always install a Lync server 2010 in an existing Lync Server 2013 topology.

    so in brief the Lync Server 2010 Folder is not the same as the backcompatsite that we used to have while migrating from OCS

  • Ensure that you publish the Lync topology should there be any revisions in the latter. Unlike the OCS 2007 R2 Backcompat node, the node for Lync Server 2010 should not be deleted (and should not be deletable anyway for backward compatibility with this N-1 version). You should also save a local backup copy of the .TXML Lync topology file.
