Hi

I would like to install Lync in my network only to evaluate and test. Is there a way to test it withourt installing the all server.

Thank you

Nope. And it does make changes to AD. Testing in production is never a food idea. Standing up a teat lab as VMs would be the way to go here, and take advantage of trial downloads. But you'll need to still stand up the full server setup to test properly.
