Configuring MessageStats for Lync

Setting Up the Report Pack

The report pack collects information from an Skype for Business or Lync server through gathering tasks. Before you create a gathering task to collect the data, you must set up a connection to each Skype for Business or Lync CDR (Call Detail Recording) database instance from which you want to gather information. There should be only one database connection defined per Skype for Business or Lync pool.

After you have created a connection to the CDR database and, optionally, the Archiving database, you can create gathering tasks to collect information from the databases.

Connecting to a Pool

You must enter the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the Lync or Skype for Business pool, or the standard edition server, and set up a connection to the Archiving and CDR SQL database instances from which you want to retrieve data. You can also connect to a pool using one of its fully-qualified DNS aliases.

For Lync Server 2010, Microsoft has introduced different kinds of pools: front-end pools, A/V conferencing pools, mediation pools, and edge pools. When you are connecting to a Lync Server pool, the pool name refers to the name of the front-end pool.

When you set up the initial connection to the Archiving and CDR SQL Server databases, you must specify a SQL authentication account and password. The SQL account is required to perform gatherings from the CDR and Archiving databases and must have the following database role memberships in the CDR and Archiving databases:
