Topic Last Modified: 2012-09-29

After deploying Lync Server 2013, you need to configure a federation route for your site. In order to use the federated route that is being used by Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013 must be configured to use this route.

To enable the Lync Server 2013 site to use the Director and Edge Server of the Lync Server 2010 deployment, use Topology Builder to associate the legacy Edge pool.

  3. On the Actions menu, click Edit Properties.

  6. Click OK to close the Edit Properties page.

  7. In Topology Builder, under the Lync Server 2013 node, navigate to the Standard Edition server or Enterprise Edition Front End pools, right-click the pool, and then click Edit Properties.
