Microsoft Senior Support engineers walk you through real-life support cases, giving you an insider’s view into the systematic approach they use to troubleshoot Lync Server issues.
These short videos focus on specific tasks and show you how to accomplish them for Microsoft Lync Server 2010.
Most hosted meetings have fewer than 250 participants, but what if you need to host larger meetings? The published maximum size of a conference hosted on Microsoft Lync Server 2010 in a shared pool (a pool that hosts all Microsoft Unified Communications workloads including IM/Presence, Conferencing, and Enterprise Voice) is 250 users. However, Microsoft Lync Server can support meetings with up to 1000 participants using Lync Server Audio/Video Conferencing service, which includes sharing PowerPoint presentations. Support for these large meetings requires a dedicated Lync Server 2010 pool configured to support large meetings. The pool must be managed in a way that ensures hosting of only one large meeting at a time. For additional information about scalability considerations and implementation requirements for a dedicated pool for large meetings, including topology, hardware, software, and configuration requirements, as well as best practice recommendations for supporting large meetings, see the white paper: Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Support for Large Meetings in the Microsoft Download Center.
