Hello,

I would like install Lync server on a test server however looking at the Microsoft minimum requirements looks like I will need a very powerful server to install all rolls on one machine.

Has anyone had experience installing Lync on 1 or more fairly low spec servers? If yes what’s the absolute minimum I need to get things working, not bothered about performance as only a few users will be using it for testing...

Thanks for your help

i just gone through this cycle before.
in order to test lync 2010 properly, you will need a AD, exchange 2010, sharepoint 2010, pki and etc.

SBS2011 fit the first server and lync 2010 fit the second server.

Sbs2011 need a minimum 4 gb of ram
Lync also need around the same.

64bit is a MUST. so your low spec servers do not able to run 64bit windows, forget about them.


you can try to build your SBS2011 in 4GB then drop it to 2GB after installation
but again, it is hassle.

And you need workstation as well, (at least 2 to 3 windows 7 workstation that able to join to this domain).


of course, really depends on your scope of testing, the above scenario able to test alot of things around collobration of LYnc with sharepoint and exchange
