I want to setup a test enviroment for Lync 2010 in my AD enviroment. I am currently running LCS 2005 SP1.

 I don't want to migrate users to it i just want to test. Do i need to do anything in particular if i DON'T want to migrate users?

The two systems will be independent of each other.  What you will not want to do is change any of the SRV records for automatic login but otherwise you will not be able to IM between the system, see the users or anything.

The funny thing about LCS 2005 to 2010, since a direct upgrade is not supported, when you try to move users with the Move-CSLegacyUser (which is for 2007 and 2007 R2) won't even work for your enabled LCS 2005 users.  So when you do want to get to the actual process of moving people, you will need to do it via PowerShell and you will lose the contacts in LCS if you move directly from LCS 2005 to 2010.
