"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1.      If the pools are new and not yet defined, use Topology Builder to create the pools.

2.      In Topology Builder, right-click one of the two pools, and then click Edit Properties.

3.      Click Resiliency in the left pane, and then select Associated Backup Pool in the right pane.

4.      In the box below Associated Backup Pool, select the pool that you want to pair with this pool. Only existing pools that are not already paired with another pool will be available to select from.

5.      Select Automatic fail-over and fail-back for Voice, and then click OK.
When you view the details about this pool, the associated pool now appears in the right pane under Resiliency.

6.      Use Topology Builder to publish the topology.

7.      If the two pools were not yet deployed, deploy them now and the configuration will be complete. You can skip the final two steps below in this procedure.  (Steps 8 and 9)

However, if the pools were already deployed before you defined the paired relationship, you must complete the following two final steps.

8.      On every Front End Server in both pools, run the following:
<system drive>\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2013\Deployment\Bootstrapper.exe

This configures other services required for backup pairing to work correctly.

9.      From a Lync Server Management Shell command prompt, run the following:
Start-CsWindowsService -Name LYNCBACKUP

10.      Force the user and conference data of both pools to be synchronized with each other, with the following cmdlets:
Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync -PoolFqdn <Pool1 FQDN>
Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync -PoolFqdn <Pool2 FQDN>

Synchronizing the data may take some time. You can use the following cmdlets to check the status. Make sure that the status in both directions is in steady state.

Get-CsBackupServiceStatus -PoolFqdn <Pool1 FQDN>
Get-CsBackupServiceStatus -PoolFqdn <Pool2 FQDN>

Hope this helps...
