Change link to monitoring reports in Lync2010 Control Panel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We've deployed a pilot Lync 2010 deployment and added the monitoring role on a separate box (lets call it MON1). MON1 currently hosts the Monitoring role and the SSRS 2008 R2 instance. The SSRS Databases are stored on a different server (DB1).

    Initially we'd access the reports by clicking on the 'View Monitoring Server Reports' from the Home tab of the Lync control panel. That would render the reports fine and the  URL would be something like  'http://MON1/ReportServer/xxx'. We;ve since implemented SSL and a proper DNS host entry (LyncReports.domain.com) for the SSRS instance. I can access the same Lync 2010 reports just fine by going to https://LyncReports.domain.com/ReportServer/xxx, but the URL in the Control Panel is still pointing to the stale http://MON1/ReportServer/xxx URL.

    Any idea on how I can change the URL the Lync 2010 Control Panel points to for reports? I looked around in the Lync control panel and the topology builder, but was unable to find a solution. Am I missing something obvious?

    Cheers,

    Maxim

  • So I figured this out via PowerShell  following this article : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg425776.aspx

    Conveniently the example at the bottom is the exact command required for changing the reports URL. However, in my case I had to change a bit more than just the server names. Here's what worked for me:

    Set-CsMonitoringServer -Identity "MonitoringServer:MON1" -ReportingUrl "https://LyncReports.domain.com/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?/LyncServerReports/Reports%20Home%20Page"
