Additional Server Installations (Command Line)

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 Server.msi is installed, most of the other servers can be installed simply by running the .msi file from the command line with whichever MSIExec parameters you choose to apply. The one exception is the Archiving Server installation file (ArchService.msi), which has one parameter: LOGSRVQ. This parameter receives the name of the message queue that will be used by the Archiving Server. If you specify a message queue that does not exist, it will be created. You need to specify this parameter only if you specify the /qr, /qb, or /qn parameter with MSIExec; otherwise you'll be prompted for this information.

Installation Prerequisites

Most of the servers have prerequisites that must be installed first. The two primary prerequisites are OCSCore.msi (Office Communications Server Core Components) and UcmaRedist.msi (Unified Communications Managed API 2.0 Redistributable). These components must be installed before any of the server roles. Here are the prerequisites for these installation files.

All supported configurations require that you install all four applications (Conferencing Attendant, Conference Announcement Service, Outside Voice Control, and Response Group Service), but you need to activate only the applications you will be using.

Windows Media Format Runtime is installed when SetupSE.exe or SetupEE.exe are run. However, if youre doing a command-line installation on 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008, youll need to install this feature manually.

To install Windows Media Format Runtime redistributable package on Windows Server 2003, run wmfdist64.exe from the command line. This file is located on the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 CD.

To install Windows Media Format Runtime on Windows Server 2008, run this command from the command line.
