Add 3rd Front End to exsiting pool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have 2 Front End servers in our enterprise pool. Now I have read that best practise is to have 3 or more Front Ends in your pool.

    As we have performance issues on our Vmware hosted vms, so my idea is to add an extra front end but then a physical one. Is that possible

    Mixing virtual and physical Lync servers in the same pool is not supported.

    All Lync server roles in a pool must be deployed either all physical or all virtual, except for the scenario of a virtual Front End Server and a physical SQL Server Back End Server.

    Here is an article for your reference

  • You can add a physical front end.

    I have a question for you. Did you follow the Microsoft best practices for virtual Lync servers when deploying the first two front ends? Does each virtual front end have two hex core processors that are dedicated?
