i have a problem publishing my Lync Server 2013 Topology
i was in the process of migrating from Lync Server 2010 to Lync Server 2013 on a brand new server,
Lync 2010 setup has had its issues but was functional in the last couple of months.
i was able to successfully install Lync 2013, configure my new pools and download and configure the 2010 Topology and also Publish the changes for a coexisting setup.
was also able to migrate users from 2010 to 2013, internally Lync is functional and on mobile devices.
the problem came in when i needed to start to remove the old server by reassigning the CMS to the new server as described on http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj688013.aspx
the command "Move-CsManagementServer" failed every time with "unable to open lis.mdf"
when i checked on SQL instance the database would not open, checked the path to verify and found it to be missing,..
since the 2010 setup has been working for a long time, it has not complained about this database and was just working.
unfortunately i do not have a backup of this database file so i went about to recreate the file using this command: “Install-CsDatabase -CentralManagementDatabase
-SqlServerFqdn fqdn.domain.co.za –SqlInstanceName” to re-create the store database lis.mdf
which succeeded on my 3rd retry of the command.
lis.mdf is available now,
from this point i am unable to manage my site using CS Control panel, when i download existing topology from Topology Builder it sees completely nothing as if its a brand new setup.
so i have to open from the last good file everytime.
cation on either server only sees the local server not the coexisting server.
publish Topology on the 2013 server fails with this message:
"Error: SQL version is not high enough. Minimum SQL Server must be major version 10 and minor version 50 and build 1600 (2008 R2) or higher. This SQL Server is major version 10, minor version 0, and build 5500."
in short I messed up my lync 2013 upgrade, and now need to republish my topology so that i can manage my Lync Server.
would really love to get it working again without needed to scrap everything.
