Start Services on the A/V Conferencing Server


Topic Last Modified: 2010-12-07

To successfully complete this procedure you should be logged on to the computer where the Lync Server Deployment Wizard is installed as a user who is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group or have the correct permissions delegated. For details, see Delegate Setup Permissions.

After you install the Local Configuration store, install the Lync Server components, and configure certificates on a stand-alone Audio/Video (A/V) Conferencing Server, you must start Lync Server 2010 services on the server. You can use the following procedure to start services on each A/V Conferencing Server in your deployment.

To start services on a stand-alone A/V Conferencing Server

  1. Log on to the computer where the Lync Server Deployment Wizard is installed as a member of the Domain Admins group and the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group.

  2. In the Lync Server Deployment Wizard, on the Lync Server 2010 page, next to Step 4: Start Services, click Run.

  3. On the Start Services page, click Next to start the Lync Server services on the server.

  4. On the Executing Commands page, after all services have started successfully, click Finish.


    The command to start the services on the server is a best effort method to report that the services have in fact started. It might not reflect the actual state of the service. We recommend that you use the optional step in the Deployment Wizard following Step 4 to open the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) and confirm that the services have started successfully. If any Lync Server service has not started, you can right-click that service in the MMC, and then select Start.
