    A meeting is deactivated when the Focus instance of the meeting is removed from the front-end server. When a meeting is deactivated, all remaining attendees are disconnected, all transient state information is deleted from the server, and all resources allocated for the meeting from instant messaging, audio conferencing providers (ACP), A/V Conferencing Servers, or Web Conferencing Servers is released.

    A meeting can be deactivated any time after it is activated, in the following ways:

    ·         Organizer or presenters in the conference manually end the meeting.

    ·         Administrator temporarily disables the meeting organizer for Communications or deletes the meeting organizer’s user account from Active Directory.

    ·         Office Communications Server automatically deactivates a meeting after all participants in the meeting leave.

    ·         Office Communications Server automatically deactivates a meeting 24 hours after the last participant joined the meeting. If you want to change this setting, see the Office Communications Server 2007 Administration Guide.

    ·         Office Communications Server automatically deactivates a meeting after 10 minutes have passed without an authenticated enterprise user being in the meeting. If you want to change setting, see the Office Communications Server 2007 Administration Guide for step-by-step instructions.

    A deactivated meeting still exists in the backend meeting database and can be activated again before the meeting has expired.

    A meeting expires when the meeting data record is deleted from the backend meeting database and all content data associated with the meeting are deleted. After expiration, no participants, including the organizer, can join the meeting.

    In Office Communications Server, meeting expiration is controlled by two processes running on the front-end server and the Web Conferencing Server. The processes are automatic and based on an expiry time received from clients when the meeting is created. The expiry time is based on the criteria:

    ·         For a one time scheduled meeting, the expiry time is the scheduled end time plus 14 days.

    ·         For a recurring scheduled meeting with an end date, the expiry time is the scheduled end time of the last meeting occurrence plus 14 days.

    ·         For an ad hoc IM or A/V conference, the expiry time is 8 hours.

    ·         For a recurring scheduled meeting without a specified end date, no expiry time or the expiry time. Recurring scheduled meetings without a specified end date expire 6 months after the last meeting activation.

    The expiration process running on the front-end server deletes the meeting data record from the backend database after the expiry date if the conference is not currently active. The expiry time is communicated to each conferencing server involved at conference activation time. The Web Conferencing Server will delete all conference content data (including uploaded slides, whiteboard session, and shared notes) from the presentation file share, after the expiry time plus a 14 day grace period. This setting is configurable, see the Office Communications Server 2007 Administration Guide for details.
