To install Web Scheduler
- 1. In the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Deployment Tool, run the WebScheduler.msi.
If you are installing this on an Enterprise Edition Pool, step 1 must be performed on every server in the pool that has Web Components installed on it. In addition, the load-balancer must be configured to use Client IP Affinity to ensure that multiple HTTP requests from a user reach the same server that the user logged on to at the start of the session.
- 2. Activate the Web Scheduler. Use the same user name and password that you used to activate Web Components on the computer to activate Web Scheduler by doing one of the following, as appropriate for the edition of Office Communications Server:
- Standard Edition. At a command prompt, issue the following command:
LcsCmd.exe /web /action:Activate /role:Meeting /poolname:<pool_name> /User:<user_name> /Password:<password>
Where pool_name is the name of the computer (for example, computer1) and user_name and password are the same credentials that you used to activate Web Components on this computer.
- Enterprise Edition. At a command prompt, issue the following command:
LcsCmd.exe /web /action:Activate /role:Meeting /poolname:<pool_name> /User:<user_name> /Password:<password> /guest:<guestuser> /guestpassword:<guestpassword>
Where pool_name is the name of the Enterprise pool name (for example, pool1). and user_name and password are the same credentials that you used to activate Web Components on this pool. For the guest user and guest password, use the same guest user account name and password that you used to activate Web Components on the computer.
The defualt Guest Account it RTCGuestAccessUser – This part held me up for a while.
LcsCmd.exe tool is located under %CommonProgramFiles%\Office Communications Server 2007 R2.If you do not remember the user name used to activate Web Components, use the following steps. Open IIS Manager (%SystemRoot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc), and then navigate to Local Computer, Application Pools, and LSGroupExpAppPool. Right-click LSGroupExpAppPool, click Properties, and then click the Identity tab. Note the user name under Configurable identity type. You only need the name part of the string. If the user name string is Domain\RTCComponentService, RTCComponentService is what you need to use in the activation procedure..
- 3. Do one of the following to configure an SMTP server:
- Run the WebSchedulerConfig.vbs script. For details, see “Using the WebSchedulerConfig.vbs Script” later in this guide.
- Go to the installation location for Web Components (by default, %systemdrive%\Program Files\Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Web Components), and then edit the Web.config files under the conf\int and conf\ext directories by using Notepad to change the SMTPServer value from an empty string to the FQDN of an SMTP server in the enterprise.
The SMTP server needs to permit the <domain>\RTCComponentService account to relay e-mail on behalf of any enterprise user.
- 4. Verify the Web Scheduler URLs. In a Web browser, go to https://<internal web FQDN>/conf/int and then to https://<external web FQDN>/conf/ext. In these URLs, the internal Web FQDN and external Web FQDN refer to configuration settings provided when you installed the Standard Edition server or Enterprise Edition Pool.
The conf/ext virtual directory must be exposed by an HTTP reverse proxy.
