  • Hello Haiyang Ju,

    - You first have to go to the CWA snapin, through your Administrative Tools.
    - Then Stop the CWA service by rightclicking on it and selecting stop.
    - Rightclick your servername and click Deactivate.
    - Uninstall CWA from your control panel.

    After this you can install it on another server. This is fairly easy, except for the certificates. The most easy way to make an MTLS certificate is by running your current OCS management tools, make a certificate with it and not assign it. After this you have to export this cert and import it on the new server. See this guide for more information: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS_Live_Communications_Server/Q_24034409.html

    After creating the MTLS certificate, you need to create a SSL certificate by using this command:
    D:\Setup\amd64\LcsCmd.exe /Cert /Action:Request /sn:im.domain.local /san:im.domain.local,download.im.domain.local,as.im.domain.local /ca:<servername>\<service name> /OU:OCS /org:<organisation> /country:<country> /city:<city> /state:<state> /friendlyName:CWA_Certificate /exportable:TRUE

    Good luck!
