About the Updates
We are excited to announce that System Center Advisor is now compatible for Lync 2013 environments!
Yes, we have upgraded the System Center Advisor to handle Lync Server 2013 details. Now you can see all the Lync server 2013 related details are discovered by System Center Advisor and you will also receive alerts related to Lync Server 2013.
Some of the important detection we added in this release includes:
New features were introduced in Lync Server 2013 that aren't available in Lync Server 2010. System Center Advisor doesn't recognize these new features when it performs queries against a Lync Server 2010 CMS. For System Center Advisor to fully recognize and report these new features, the CMS server must be hosted by a Lync Server 2013 pool.
If you have mixed Lync environment with Lync server 2010 and Lync server 2013 servers and CMS master in on Lync Server 2010, please plan to move the CMS master role to a Lync server 2013.More details for CMS migration http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj688013.aspx.
If you already have the CMS Master on Lync Server 2013, you are all set to receive alerts related Lync Server 2010 and Lync Server 2013.
For those of you running System Center 2012 Operations Manager, you can now view System Center Advisor alerts in the operations manager console. This simplifies the process of installing agents and allows you to view all alerts in one central location. To learn more about the System Center Advisor Connector for Operations Manager, see Viewing System Center Advisor Alerts.
