Planning a Lync Site Topology
Greetings and welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching Planning a Lync Site Topology with Microsoft Lync Server 2013. The materials covered in this lesson are going to map to the course solution of Microsoft Lync Server 2013, Planning and Designing a Lync Topology. Some of the topics covered in this lesson will include central and branch site user distribution, associating workloads to business requirements, planning the Lync physical architecture, designing Lync SIP domains, and the Lync Server 2013 planning tool.

Planning Lync Server Support Infrastructure
Greetings and welcome to TypeScript. You're watching Planning Lync Server Support Infrastructure. In this video we will be looking at planning your Lync Server support infrastructure and let's start off by taking a look at our objectives. We're going to look at your internal certificate requirements with Lync Server. We will cover your external certificate requirements in a later video. We'll talk about load balancing, both DNS and hardware based, both of these work with Microsoft Lync Server and are supported by Microsoft. We'll cover the internal DNS requirements, your SQL Server requirements, the file store requirements, and we wrap up this video with a segment on IPv6 support. Let's take a look.

Planning Lync Servers
Greetings and welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching Planning Lync Servers with Microsoft Lync Server 2013. The content in this video is going to map to the core solutions of Microsoft Lync Server 2013, Planning and designing a Lync topology. The objectives are going to map to the component labeled Planning Lync Servers. So let's take a look at our objective overview. First of all, we're going to look at defining co-location of server roles. We're going to see where you can and where you can't co-locate your Lync Servers within your topology. I found this to be heavily tested on the Microsoft exam, so you may want to watch out for this. We're going to look at analyzing hardware requirements. We cover storage requirements for archiving and monitoring. We have a segment on determining your operating system version requirements and then we'll wrap it up with determination of our operating system dependencies.

Installing Lync Server 2013
Greetings and welcome to TrainSignal. You're watching Installing Lync Server 2013. In this video presentation we're going to be covering the content that maps to the Microsoft Lync Server core solutions of Microsoft Lync Server 2013 exam. The content will map over to the planning and designing a Lync topology section, planning Lync Servers. So throughout this video we're going to see how to author a topology, how to publish a topology, and also how to install our Lync Server. My design and installation of Lync Server is going to start off being very basic and as the class goes on we're going to build it up and provide high availability. So if you're just anxious to see those high availability features, we're going to be covering those inside of our high availability modules.
