Event Log - OCS Applications Module -Office Communications Server startup is pending RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im trying OCS for my company.

    I installed OCS trial 2007 standart to Server 2003 Ent Turkish SP2. I cant signin with communicator.



    Services OK

    Cert Ok

    SIP account OK


    Only I saw something in event log:


    Code Snippet

    OCS Applications Module


    Office Communications Server startup is pending.

    Some configured critical applications have not yet registered.
    For script only applications ensure that the application is available in the path specified in the MMC, and that no errors are reported by the Office Communications Server Script-Only Applications Service. For non-script only critical applications ensure that they are configured to register on server startup.



    What can I do ?

  • Run the OCS validation wizard first and check for errors

  • That's a pretty common error, basically meaning some OCS feature tried starting before a dependent service started. You can usually ignore it. I'm going to guess you have some other type of configuration issue. Is your DNS set up correctly? SRV record registered?

  • Hi


    Let me explain


    I saw that I miss steps for:


    Delegating Server Administration

    Delegating User Administration


    Im now using Windows Server 2003 R2 TR trial and OCS 2007 Trial.


    I deployed AD for intranet. This server is root and only server for my domain


    Server Name: server

    Domain: temuhnet (not temuh.net) for local intranet only.


    My Proccess List as I did

    1. installed Server Update
    2. installed IIS with ASP.Net
    3. installed 2.0 Framwork, C++ 2005
    4. Deployed AD with default Configuraiton of DNS and turned AD to 2003 Mode
    5. Beginning installing OCS as in OCS Admin Guide
    6. AD Preperation ALL OK with success and Verified

    At Delegate Setup and Administraion

    I created OCS Admins group as OCS administer group (as a member of RTCUniversalUserAdmins,RTCUniversalServerAdmins)


    Created Services accounts as





    I did Delegate Setup Tasks with success


    Second step I cant do Delegate server administration code

    I use this Code:

    Code Snippet
    LcsCmd /Domain:temuhnet
    /TrusteeGroup:OCS Admins
    /ComputerOU:OU=Domain Controllers




    lcscmd gives :


    The initial separator / was not found on switch Admins

    ERROR (0xC3EC7944): One or more unexpected arguments were found.

    Type lcscmd /? for help using this command.


    What is wrong?

  • I had this same problem, and i felt like a real doorknob once I figured it out..


    In your Command Line Syntax, wrap parameters whose values have spaces in them with double quotes. for example, the line you are failing is where

    Code Snippet
    /TrusteeGroup:OCS Admins



    is. Change this to

    Code Snippet
    /TrusteeGroup:"OCS Admins"



    , and re-run the command. You will get a new error that says The initial separator / was not found on switch Controllers, so obviously you will need to do the same for

    Code Snippet
    /ComputerOU:OU="Domain Controllers"



    . Fix, and re-run the command. This time, the command should succeed. I also referenced the HTML log it writres into : C:\Documents and Settings\YOURCURRENTUSERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\1\ (look for the newest file by mod date) , and that is actually somewhat helpful. Other than that, your syntax is perfect.


    I hope this helps someone.
