High Availability with Lync Server 2010 Sandard Edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the Technet Microsoft's Library it is written that : " The Standard Edition server is designed for small organizations, and for pilot projects of large organizations. It enables many of the features of Lync Server 2010, including the necessary databases, to run on a single server. This enables you to have Lync Server functionality for a lesser cost, but does not provide a true high-availability solution. If they go on to fully deploy Enterprise Voice and remove the PBX system, they should provide high availability for their voice solution by deploying a second Standard Edition server or moving to a Front End pool.  If you want to accommodate more users or provide some high availability capability for Enterprise Voice (at a minimum cost), you could add another Standard Edition server to this topology."


    So is it possible to provide High Avalability in STD Lync Server ?? And what is a  false high Avalability ???

  • Hi,

    You can configure 2 Standard Edition server as a backup registrar in case a failure happens on the primary registrar.

    This new feature was introduced especially for voice resiliency. However, there are some features not available for the users connected to backup registrar. Please check the following thread for an overview.
