Lync server 2010 multiforest RRS feed

  • Pregunta

  • We have our own private cloud formed by 3 forrests, 2 of them are used to create linked mailboxes, therefore all present accounts are disabled and they only replicate against the DC to get validation and GPO´s. That is up and running perfectly.

    The remaining forrest is configured with user mailboxes and it has it´s accounts enabled and fully configured.

    The main issue is the following,

    There´s an installed Lync Server 2010, but as there is only one, it creates a Domain Federation which ends up with a common list letting users from Forrest A talk to users from Forrest B. 

    Is there a way  of making some kind of filter or segmentation of users in order not to let them accross Forrests?Or should I install a Lync Server per Forrest? 

    In case Lync Server per Forrest is the correct way, will the 3 of them be able to share the same exchange server 2010? Would it be necessary to set up an Edge server for each Lync server?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Xabi, The integration Microsoft Lync with Microsoft Exchnage in your scenario is valid and you have not any problems, The Edge Server is only to connect remote users with the FrontEnd Lync, in your case is recomended that you will install a edge server.  Cheers.
