Two pools in the same domain cannot see each other, why? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    How can I have two pools communicating with each other in the same domain?

    One sinlge forest, one single domain, MyDomain.com, two LCS2005 w/SP1 servers, one pool on each server, pool1 and pool2.  DNS includes A and SRV records for both pools.  Certificates from Internal Stand-alone CA have been deployed and MTLS is being used.  In AD User Account properties I can see the two pools and I can choose which one to assign to the user which is a good thing.  However when trying to see users from the other domain, they always appear as Offline.

    I have followed MS white papers for the deployment so far.  Just for the record, pool1 is pre-existing and I just brought pool2 up recently.  Eventually I will decommision pool1 and keep pool2 but I would like to have them up and running together for a while.  The reason for the whole thing is using a different name for the pool.  Apparently I could not rename the existing pool so I had to create a new one.


    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Chris

  • Check your certificates and see if you have SAN on them.  I had to change my certificates and add subject alternate names.

  • Make sure you have these two hotfixes installed on your LCS05 server.

  • That's done and I do have communication between the two pools.  I do appreciate your help and I will mark this one as answered.

    However when I try to access the properties of the new pool in the old pool's LCS snap in, I get this error:

     

    Live Communications Server Snap-in cannot read some of the proxy information from Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).  Close Live Communications Server property pages, restart WMI, and then try again.

     

    Needless to say that I have restarted WMI plus rebooted the servers.  Not good enough on Google.  I am so close to get this thing working.  Any ideas?

     

    Regards,

    Chris
