new project! I’ve been working on installing lync 2010 in my environment. Here’s some prelim notes. I’ll update as I go.

Running the Console:

I attempted to launch the console both with the start menu link directly on the server and by going to https://servername/cscp

both gave me the following error.

Could not load type System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpModule

What it boiles down to was that the IIS server was installed AFTER  .net  framework 4. The fix is simple. re-register aspnet and IIS.

aspnet_regiis.exe -iru

Adding users:

You cannot add users via the console who already belong to the domain admin’s group. You’ll have to do it via powershell. To make it easy – for those of us who are new at powershell – you can use the Lync Server Management Shell right in the start menu.

Enable-CsUser -Identity "User Name" -RegistrarPool "Name.of.your.server"
-SipAddressType SamAccountName  -SipDomain "domain.local"

Please note that you can change the SamAccountName to use whichever method you like to generate sip address type. the ref link below has options.
