Preparing the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Collaboration Service for use with Microsoft Lync Server 2010

If you plan to install the BlackBerry® Collaboration Service for use with Microsoft® Lync™ Server 2010, you must verify that the computer that you install the BlackBerry Collaboration Service on includes the required items.

Before you install the BlackBerry Collaboration Service, you must perform the following actions in the order that they are listed below:

  1. Install and enable Microsoft® .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (if you installed Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0, visit support.microsoft.com to read article 2224981 before you continue).
  2. For the following steps, use the install packages included with Microsoft Lync Server 2010 installation files. You can find the files in Setup\amd64.
    1. Install Microsoft® Visual C++® 2008 Redistributable Package (vcredist_x64.exe).
    2. Install Microsoft® SQL Server® Native Client (sqlncli_x64.msi).
  3. For the following steps, you need to download the software from the Volume Licensing Service Center at www.microsoft.com.
    1. Install Microsoft® Unified Communications Managed API 2.0 Core Redist 64-bit (ucmaredist.msi).
    2. Install Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 R2, Core Components (ocscore.msi).
  4. Install the required certificate in the Personal Certificate folder for the local computer account. You must choose the Web Server Certificate template and specify the following information:
    • For the Subject Name, type the FQDN of the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 pool.
    • For the Subject Alternative Names, type the FQDN of the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 pool and the FQDN of the computer that you install the BlackBerry Collaboration Service on.
    • For the Friendly Name, type OCSConnector.

The BlackBerry Collaboration Service supports Microsoft® Unified Communications Managed API 2.0 and must use Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2, Core Components to take advantage of the backwards compatibility of Microsoft Lync Server 2010 with Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API 2.0. The BlackBerry Collaboration Service does not support using ocscore.msi or ucmaredist.msi from the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 installation files.

To download the install packages, visit the Microsoft Download Center or the Volume Licensing Service Center at www.microsoft.com.
