Lync Server 2010 reporting using Quest MessageStats (Part 3)

This is part 3 of a multi-part blog series looking at Lync Server 2010 reporting using Quest MessageStats

Disclaimer: I do not work for Quest Software, nor do I recommend using Quest MessageStats to report against Microsoft Lync Server 2010

For the next couple parts we will have a look at installing Quest MessageStats for reporting against Lync Server 2010

In my environment I installed MessageStats and all its components on a single server including SQL server, however do read the user guide for how best to install it for your environment for performance reason the MessageStats database should not share a SQL instance with any OCS or Lync databases.
