Lync 2013 Topology Publishing Fails

I am trying to publish my topology in Lync 2013 server on a Windows 2008R2 box.  I receive the error when the topology get to the "Check Machines Not Moved" Action.  The error is as follows:

ComputerPoolChange: A computer cannot move between pools while either pool has Lync Server services installed.
ComputerPoolChange: Computer "testlync-fe01.domain.local" moved from pool "testlync-fe01.domain.local" to pool "lyncpool.domain.local".
ComputerPoolChangeResolution: Remove all Lync Server services from both pools and deploy this change before moving computers.
Error: Moving computers from one cluster to another is not permitted. You must remove and add in separate steps.
Error: An error occurred: "Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deployment.DeploymentException" "Moving computers from one cluster to another is not permitted. You must remove and add in separate steps."

I have no clue what the hell this means.  I have searched the specific error for two days and can't seem to get a half-way decent answer.  I was sent to a 100 page document for Lync 2010 that didn't provide anything but more questions.  

Any help would be most appreciated.

Looks like you have an existing topology with a Lync server assigned to one pool. And the topology you are trying to publish has that Lync server assigned to another pool. You can't move a machine from one pool to another while Lync is installed on the server being moved. You must uninstall all Lync Server services on that server, then make the change, then re-install the Lync Server components you want.
