3. Enabling Call Detail Recording (CDR)

For your Lync server, you enable call detail recording (CDR) by setting the global properties for the associated forest. CDRs are logs of usage statistics from conferences, instant messaging, and phone sessions that take place across your Lync servers.

1
In the Start menu, select Lync Server Control Panel.
2
Select Monitoring and Archiving in the list on the left side of the panel.
3

Configuring Lync Server 2013 or Skype for Business 2015

As of Lync Server 2013, 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. In Skype for Business Server 2015, monitoring is enabled or disabled on a pool-by-pool basis.

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 records. During configuration you will associate the SQL instance with the Front-End Lync server on which the monitoring 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 Lync server activities such as Voice over IP (VoIP) phone calls; instant messaging (IM); file transfers; audio/video (A/V) conferencing; and application sharing sessions.

In this procedure, the Standard Edition Server is referenced. The same procedure is also used for the Enterprise version.

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.
