We're in the process of designing a basic lync deployment with our current exchange 2010 platform. I've been doing a lot of searches but its hard to tell what may be the best avenue. I was hoping someone who has a similar setup or knows more then I do might have some ideas. Things I'm looking for are:
1. I know I can run all of the lync roles on one server, however how about the Archive server, can it be ran on the same server as the lync software installation?
2. Can the SQL DB be run from the machine as well?
3. If I run Lync 2013 with Exchange 2010 can I still use the archiving capability?
4. I know it requires w2k8r2 but does it require Enterprise or Standard?
Thanks in advanced!
