  1. 1. SESSION CODE: UNC317<br />Microsoft Communications Server “14”: Management Experience<br />Joachim Farla<br />UC Community Engineer<br />e-office<br />
  2. 2. CS 14 Manageability Lifecycle<br />Datasheets<br />Product overview<br />SCOM 2007 R2 pack+<br />Monitoring Server+<br />Synthetic Transactions* <br />CS 14 Planning tool+<br />Planning Guides+<br />Topology Builder*<br />Setup (Local)*<br />Migration tools (PowerShell)*<br />CS 14 Control Panel*<br />PowerShell*<br />* new in CS 14<br />+ significant enhancements in CS 14<br />
  3. 3. Planning<br />
  4. 4. Central Management<br />Top customer issues before CS 14:<br /><ul><li>Configuration spread across AD, SQL, local store
  5. 5. Edge has no access to AD, manual config needed
  6. 6. Deployment validation occurs post-deployment
  7. 7. No way to validate planned changes before they take effect
  8. 8. Out of sync – policies, configuration. </li></ul>With Central Management in CS 14:<br /><ul><li>Schematized definition (Xml docs) of deployment topology, configuration of CS components & Policies.
  9. 9. All documents managed by central store (SQL database)
  10. 10. All writes (changes) happen against central store data. Eliminate “out of sync” problems.
  11. 11. Read-only copies of data are replicated to all topology nodes (including Edge).
  12. 12. Validation happens before changes are “published”. Eliminate misconfiguration.</li></li></ul><li>Central Management Store (CMS)<br />Configuration Change - Workflow<br />CMS<br />CS 14 server1<br />2<br />4<br />1<br />3<br />5<br />Administrator makes changes through CS PowerShell/UI Interfaces.<br />Master Replicator generates a snapshot of the new configuration.<br />File Transfer Agent replicates the snapshot to all computers in the deployment .<br />Local Replicator Agent notified of new snapshot available. Loads it into the database and reports back status.<br />Status is transferred back to master and replication status is updated.<br />
  13. 13. Topology Model<br /><ul><li>Global CS Deployment: is a collection of Sites
  14. 14. Sites are made up of Pools
  15. 15. Pools host:
  16. 16. Services (such as IM, Conferencing, VoIP)
  17. 17. Users</li></li></ul><li>CS 14 Planning Tool<br />Prescriptive guidance for deploying CS 14 :<br />Workloads<br />Scenarios/desired UC modalities.<br />Datacenter characteristics.<br />Users <br />Usage model built-in<br />Voice users <br />External/Internal users<br />Topology<br />Servers, Hardware Profiles, Ports to be opened<br />Export to:<br />Visio, Excel, Topology Builder tool<br />
