Installing the Lync 2010 Monitoring Role

Quick and dirty post.. sorry.

When installing the Lync monitoring role, if you receive an error like the following:

Running script: C:\Windows\system32\cscript.exe //Nologo "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\DbSetup\RtcCdrDbSetup.wsf" /dbexists /sqlserver:thegid-lync.thegid.local\MONITORING /serveracct:thegid\RTCComponentUniversalServices /logsize:1024 /verbose

Open SQL Server Configuration Manager > SQL Server Network Configuration > Protocols for <SQL instance> and ensure that TCP/IP is enabled. Restart the SQL instance after enabling it.

Also if you have issues running the “Deploy Monitoring Server Reports” open Reporting Services Configuration Manager > Web Service URL and ensure that you are able to browse to the Report Server Web Service URL.
