Microsoft Lync 2010 server – preparation of OS

Today I started installation of Standard version of Microsoft Lync server. There are some prerequisites for OS where Lync server will run. Here is a quick step-by-step howto:

  • Installation of .NET Framework 3.5. Run following commands in Admin Powershell:
    • Import-Module ServerManager
    • Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core

Install .NET 3.5

  • In same Powershell windows run following command to install IIS Feature with all required components:
    • Add-WindowsFeature Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Net-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Log-Libraries,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Filtering,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Scripting-Tools,Web-Client-Auth

Install all IIS requirements


  • Install RSAT-ADDS by running following command in same Powershell windows:
    • Add-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS

RSAT-ADDS installation


  • Reboot server
  • We need to install Windows Media Format Runtime. We can do it by running following command from elevated command prompt:
    • %systemroot%\system32\dism.exe /online /add-package /packagepath:%windir%\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-Media-Format-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.7601.17514.mum /ignorecheck

Install WMFR


  • Press “Y” to reboot server again.

Tomorrow we will prepate Schema, Domain and Forest to support Lync 2010.
