How NOT to install the Lync 2010 Mobility and Autodiscover Services

The Lync Server 2010 Mobility and Autodiscover services were released last night (McxStandalone.msi) with the documentation (LS_Mobility.doc)

Firstly read the documentation if you don’t Lync Mobile won’t work as to get it to work is a bit of a minefield!

If you just happen to be trying to workout why it’s not working, do you remember this screen?

If you do you then should have never seen this and this is where you’ve gone wrong!

For people who are about the install then STOP right here!, just click cancel and end the installation and read the manual! (LS_Mobility.doc)

If you just happened to keep clicking next until you reach finish, then yes the binaries were installed but web components on the external web site are missing see below:

You should have copied the McxStandalone.msi to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Lync Server\Deployment\cache\4.0.7577.0\setup

and then at the Lync Shell, run C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Deployment\Bootstrapper.exeand you should have seen this:

But this is one of a number of steps required to get Lync Mobile running.

So go and read documentation!
