At work I have become the "lead" Lync person. The clients are Lync 2013. I was digging around our installs and found Lync 2010 server. So I want to get the big picture and setup a Lync server and test Lync users in a Lab environment. I plan to have a Lync server on a switch that is off the network, and have a few test clients.
I have never setup a Lync server, and was guessing that I would need to setup a Windows 2008 server, then install Lync server on the windows server. Does that sound right?
