CWA activation wizard doesn't detect OCS in the domain RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I have OCS2007 EE installed on the network.

    But on every server that i tried do install CWA 2007, the activation wizard returns the message:

    "Setup has not detect Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 in the Domain"

     

    Using Microsoft Network Monitor i can see that de wizard is query AD for LDAP objects, so there might be some missing value on it (?)

    The installation log doesnt contain any error about it

     

    Is there anything i can do to debug where is the problem?

    you can check OCS installation with this command line:

     

    Consider this example:

     

    OCS Domain Controller: ocsdc.contoso.com

    OCS Global Catalog: ocsdc.contoso.com

    OCS FE Server: ocsfe.contoso.com

     

    lcscmd /ServerSurprisecsfe.contoso.com /Action:CheckLCServerState /Role:EE /RefDomain:Contoso.com /RootDCSurprisecsdc.contoso.com

     

    Check the HTML file after completing the command.

     

    See if you get any errors or warning related to AD objects for OCS.

     

    lastly check your Global catalog server placement and if it is reachable from the server' you tried configuring for CWA.

     

    And i hope you are on RTM now...

    I'm on RTM...

     

    Here's what happened:

    after moving all user from LCS2005 to OCS2007, i deactivated all 2005 servers and an Domain Unprep to (remove previous RTc groups and ACE's).

    This procedure has Unprep some settings of OCS2007.

     

    LCSCMD /Action:CheckLCServerState returned OK, but a deeper look inside the html log revealed some missing domain ACE settings.

     

    Running OCS2007 DomainPrep again solved the problem.

     

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    We had the same issue after upgrading to Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1. E2K7 SP1 upgrades the forest and modify some OCS attributes so we needed to re-run OCS forest preparation before activating CWA.

     

    See you Smile
