I'm trying to install OCS R2 on a Windows 2008 R2 Server. The install seems to go well up until it's time to start the services. Some start up no problem and the others throw an error. I've been told that I should be installing Lync instead, but it seems overkill for what we want. I'll I need is the internal instant messaging. Will note as we are a smaller outfit, Exchange 2010 and AD are also on this box. Not sure if this is best practice, just don't have other hardware to use.

Not sure why you can't do a selective install and just load the services you want.

Been kicking this around for a few weeks now, any input would be appreciated.

use the Install Wizard to go through the whole process... You can request and assign the certificates there...

You should use Lync btw - even if it is only for IM, since Lync 2013 is out, I'd hesitate twice to install a Software 2 Versions back...

If the only service you want to use is IM, why not use a new VM for that? - Then you won't have to worry about co-location...

Thanks guys I'm going to split this one. I went with Lync 2010 instead and while it still gave me some grief, the errors it gave were more informative.

There was a cert problem and that was because of my server name, don't use an underscore in the name. Once that was changed it installed fine.

So half for Ian for calling a cert problem and half for Smighty for suggesting a newer version which ultimately lead me to the issue.
