OCS 2007 Standard Deployment - Three way IM (Conferencing) not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is driving me nuts!

     

    I'm trying to get OCS Standard Edition working. I've followed the deployment guide (twice) and I've got IM working between two users.When I try to add a third users Communicator 2007 fails to set up the conference. Live meeting doesn't work either:

     

    I get the following logged on the OCS Standard Server:

    Go to your certificate, I used IIS and right clicked my website and hit properties, went to "Directory Security" select View cert:  You need to go to "details" tab and select "edit properties" Enable all purposes for this cert needs to be ticked.

    This setting needs to be on all intermedia certs and parent certs, So after you verify your purchased cert has enabled all purposes go to the "certification path" tab and work your way up the tree selecting "view cert" and checking the details on each...

     

    We have godaddy so there are 4 including the one we've purchased and all intermediate, The very top of our tree was the problem, so in our case I selected the Certification path tab, highlighted the top most cert "calicert class 2 policy validation authority" and selected "view certificate" went to details tab, and hit "edit properties" checked the radio button "enable all purposes for this certificate"

  • FIXED!

     

    I didn't see that post, even after a LOT of searching. Blindness brought on by frustation maybe.

     

    You're a star! Thank you.

  • Chris,

    I work for a small business which is looking to setup OCS for only IM and I have a few questions

    I.  If it will be used for only IM why use 07.  Does LCS 05 provide the capability?

    2. If I do use OCS 07 Standard how many servers are needed.  Will they also need to be independent?  CAn we use a Virtual Server?

    I never used LCS 05 so can't really comment. However IM in OCS for more than two participants is actually treated as a conference from what I've seen.

     

    If you use Standard Ed. you will need 1 server if it's for internal use only. If you want to provide IM federation you'll need to deploy an edge server also. This must be a different server, you can't deploy the edge server role on the same machine with Standard Ed., you'll need Enterprise Ed. for this. However, if you use VMs then you could have them on the same physial server I guess - depends on your server spec and traffic.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • I received more info about the project today.  The goal is to impliment OCS enterprise.  The OCS server will be a virtual server on a server which has 4GB of RAM.  SQL 05 will be on a different server and we hope to have POC testing with IM completed by end of week.  Can you offer any suggestions regardung potentail problems?

  • Only that OCS is never supported on Virtual Environment

    But in your POC that should not be a problem as you are probably only using a limited number of users and only IM and presence will be tested.

     

    As soon as you want to test audio & video conferencing then you might run into problems

  • Question: How on earth does OCS know it's running in a VM? If that VM is a domain joined there's no difference surely.

  • It's not that the software 'knows' whether it's on a physical or virtual host, as it functions the same.  The 'support' statements boils down to whether Microsoft will official support that particular deployment as there can be problems inherent to vitalization (e.g. CPU cycle/time sync issues, performance overhead affecting time-sensitive audio/video communications, etc)

  • It should not be a problem with 3 users setup for the IM testing.  Granted we do have less then 100employees and virtual may not be the way to go when it goes live
