OCS 2007 R2 and Web Scheduler RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have successfully installed OCS 2007 R2  on Server 2008 64 bit  and I am trying to install an additional component which is called "Web Scheduler". I get the following error when I attempt to install it, 

    "Product: Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Web Scheduler -- Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Web Components Server must be installed first. Installation cannot continue."

    I have installed the "Web Components Server" and validated the installation but "Web Scheduler" program does not recognize it as installed. I am thinking that this is a 32bit app and that is why it is not working.  I downloaded the program from here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=96B42DC8-E769-4EFD-B7A6-ECA03058F8AD&displaylang=en

    Any idea on how I can get this installed or another solution for managing OCS Live Office Meetings. Thank you for your time.

  • We would have to wait for Microsoft to release an updated version that works with OCS 2007 R2

  • Is there an R2 version of the web scheduler?

  • Currently no. The original word from the dev team was that there wouldn't be an R2 version of the Web Scheduler. However I've heard they are now reconsidering it.

  • I hope they are reconsidering. we currently rollout 2007 R2 and we need to have the web scheduler available for our users....

  • There is one in the works for R2, it was not abandoned.  No word on when it will be made available yet, but keep an eye out for something.

  • I didn't know such tool existed! Thanks. Which other Web Components is available for OCS R2 ?
    Is there a tool that list all existing Office Communications Server 2007 R2 conferences, all the user of live meeting, and allow an adminstrator to shutdown any live meeting sessions ? Web-Scheduler is limited, it's list only conferences that were organized by a specified user.

  • I have a quick question about installing this thing. I am seeing on http://technet.microsoft.com/hi-in/library/dd425201(en-us,office.13).aspx that i can only colocate the web components role with the Archiving and Monitoring server roles. However, when I look at me OCS Admin snap-in, I see web components is clearly running on the front-end. Can someone clarify (or point me to some instructions) on where/how to install the web scheduler? Info from Microsoft seems to be a little sparse.

  • Hi Paul,

    in a Standard Edition deployment, all necesairy roles are installed on the default front-end server.
    The Web Scheduling tool will also be implemented on your single std edition server, or on ALL your enterprise edition servers that have the Web components service installed.

    Info on MS Site is indeed not complete, however once you download and install the .msi on your OCS server, you will find a very nice document in your resource kit folder, explaining further setup to activate and use the functionality.

    hope this helps

  • FYI, the ReadMe doc is actually not dropped in the resKit folder, but it put in the Web Components\Conf folder.  Here's the default path:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2\Web Components\Conf\OCS_ResourceKit_WebScheduler_Readme.doc
