Step 4: Start Services

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 will reach end of support on January 9, 2018. To stay supported, you will need to upgrade. For more information, see Resources to help you upgrade your Office 2007 servers and clients.

After you have configured your certificates, you are ready to start the QoE Monitoring service. This step can be completed now, or it can be completed later, but it must be completed before you can start monitoring media quality.

Confirm that the Active Directory changes have replicated before you start the services. For more information about the Active Directory changes that occur when you deploy Office Communications Server, see the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Active Directory Guide.

To start the services

  1. In the Deployment Wizard, at Step 4: Start Services, click Run.

  2. On the Welcome to the Start Services Wizard page, click Next.

  3. On the Start Office Communications Server 2007 services page, review the list of services that were found on the computer, and then click Next.

  4. When the wizard has completed, select the View the log when you click Finish check box, and then click Finish.

  5. In the log file, verify that <Success> appears under the Execution Result column. Look for <Success> Execution Result at the end of each task to verify each service started successfully. Close the log window when you finish.

After you finish these tasks, you are ready to associate the QoE Monitoring Server with Office Communications pools and Mediation Servers whose media quality it will monitor.


If a service does not respond to the wizard in a timely fashion, the log file will show that a service did not start successfully. If the log file shows that one or more services failed to start, run the Start Services Wizard again.
