No, not at all.  I just wasn't sure based on the name of the server in the screen shot.  Was more just asking.  Exchange is only needed for Voice Mail for Enterprise Voice deployments.

First, if you plan on only having a single server and have no plans to expand beyond the one than installing a Standard Edition server might make more sense.  If you have already done the design process and know that enterprise edition server is what you need that is fine also.  I've installed many single server enterprise edition pools with the knowledge that some day I was going to add a second server - so there isn't anything wrong with that design either.

As for the direction question.  The pool is the logical name of your virtual pool that represents all front-end servers that will be associated to it.  So your pool should not be an existing server name or anything like that.  I like to use something like ocspool01 or something like that.  The domain will remain the same.  The Pool FQDN should fill in automatically for you but it would simply be ocspool01.domain.local for example (assuming domain.local is the domain).  You should also create an A record in DNS for the pool FQDN and point that at the same IP address of the server.  In a multiple server Enterprise deployment than you would point the DNS record at the HLB VIP - but you didn't mention any HLB's.

The last one is the SQL instance.  This is the SQL 2005 or SQL 2008 instance you plan to install OCS into.  By the books, this should be a new and empty instance of SQL.  It cannot be running on the same server as the enterprise front-end server either.  So if you had a SQL server that was using the default instance, than you would just enter the server name.  If you built the SQL 2005/08 server with a named instance, then you would go with server name\instance name as specified during the install.

Now, if you want to run SQL on the same server as the front-end then you will want to install Standard instead.  Standard will install SQL Express on the server for you but does limit you to a single server in your pool (i.e. no high availability).

Thanks,

Richard

You can install OCS 2007 (or 2007 R2) on a single server using the Standard Edition Deployment.  This would give you internal IM, Presence, PC-to-PC Audio and internal Live Meeting.  If you want external people to connect to your deployment then you would also need to deploy an OCS Edge Server in addition. The edge servers role is to provide external access to authenticate into Live Meeting, login to OCS externally without VPN.  (Additionally, not super clear at times in the docs but you would also need a reverse proxy server like ISA, TMG, F5, etc. to provide reverse proxy access to the front-end server.)

As for the install of an OCS 2007 standard edition server may I suggest to check out this site:

http://www.ocspedia.com/FE/OCS_Install.htm

It has a pretty good step-by-step including screen shots of the install.

Thanks,

If you aren't going to have more than 5000 users and don't need/desire high availability in this install, I would do Standard Edition.  Less complex and doesn't require an external SQL server.

Thanks,

The second screen shot is where the issue is.  <mssqlserver> is that something you typed in or did it auto-fill that information?  So just a couple of questions.  You created a separate SQL database on the server "Exchange"?  Or did you just do reporting services on that server?  Also, just to verify, you aren't trying to install OCS on an Exchange server?

If you created your own SQL server instance, than the last box should be something like servername\instancename.

Or in your case:

Exchange

There isn't going to be an instance name in your case as it looks like you used the Default Instance name when you installed SQL.  Just don't have enough information with the one screen shot, so worst case it would be EXCHANGE\MSSQLSERVER.

Thanks,

Richard
