Configuring Lync Server 2013 andSkype for Business 2015

In Lync Server 2013 and Skype for Business 2015, both the Monitoring role and the Archiving role no longer exist as separate roles. Both the monitoring and archiving services are collocated on each Front End server. The monitoring and archiving services can share the same SQL Server instance.

The procedures are divided into the following parts:

As a prerequisite, you must have created a SQL instance which will be used to store the monitoring and archiving records. During configuration you will associate the SQL instance with the Front End Lync or Skype for Business server on which the monitoring, and if required, archiving services will run.

1. Associating the Store with the Front End Pool

You must associate a monitoring store (database) with the Front End pool. A single monitoring store can be associated with multiple pools.

The monitoring store is used to collect call detail recording (CDR). Call detail recording tracks the usage of the server activities such as Voice over IP (VoIP) phone calls; instant messaging (IM); file transfers; audio/video (A/V) conferencing; and application sharing sessions.

Optionally, if you want to include statistical size information in the IM reports, you can also associate an archiving store with the Front End pool.

Some steps in the procedures reference the Standard Edition Lync server. The same procedures are used for Enterprise Lync servers and for Skype for Business servers.

2
Select Standard Edition Front End and select the Lync or Skype for Business server.
3
Right-click and select Edit Properties.
4
Select the Monitoring (CDR and QoE metrics) check box and click New.

Optionally, you can also select Archiving and specify the same SQL store as the Archiving database.
9
Select Publish.

2. Updating the Lync/Skype for Business Server

Now you must update the Lync or Skype for Business server to include the monitoring and archiving store information.

2
In the Deployment Wizard, select Install or Update (Lync or Skype for Business) Server System.

3. Enabling and Configuring Monitoring and Archiving

Now you can enable and configure monitoring (CDR) and, if required, archiving.

1
Open the Control Panel and select Monitoring and Archiving in the left panel.
2
In the Call Detail Recording tab, double-click the Global default policy and ensure that Enable Monitoring of CDRs is selected.
3
Click Commit.
