OCS 2007 R2 Assesment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have to start working on a project where in we are moving the users from OCS 2007 R2 to Lync Server 2010. I have to start with the OCS 2007 R2 assesment. I am not sure if there is any tool available to help me do that. Also, the customer is using all the features of OCS 2007 R e.g - Chat Server, Archiving and Monitoring, CWA, Mediation Server, Edge Server.

    I will really appreciate if anyone can please share the tool(s) and also if possible share the list of questions I need to ask from the customer.

    Thanks and Regards

  • So u should know all policies and settings from the customer, right?

    There is a command in Lync Power Shell

    Import-CsLegacyConfiguration

    but only after including OCS 2007 R2 in Lync topology.


    About questions:
    1. What OCS Roles do they use.

    2. Domain Topology

    3. Externat Access (do they have TMG?)

  • Hi,hp.harpreet,

    You can use LCScmd.exe to backup and export OCS setting and I think OCS Best Practise Analyze tool will also help you understand the customer's OCS environment more clearly.Here is some information about OCS backup for your reference http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd572905(office.13).aspx.

    Regarding the list of questions,I think A_Filatov has give the key points for you,and you can add some more question according to the BPA results or something else you considered.

    Regards,

    Sharon

  • Thanks for the information. I have gone through this document. It only tells about the migration approach.

    My scenario is that I have very limited (almost null) information about the customer's OCS 2007 R2 environment. I need to send some questionaire to them to extract as much information as possible.

    I am looking for that list of questions.
