Lync 2013 pre-requisite install

This weekend I setup my lab to have a little play with Lync 15 Beta. I had hoped that the Lync installer had been updated since 2010 and would add the required windows features as it went along but apparently not.

Having setup and installed the required features and rules I created a Powershell script based on what roles and features I’d needed to install to complete the Lync setup.

Note: This script is very rough and ready and might include more than you need for your deployment, like the AD tools (required to extend your schema) so you might want to take them out depending on your topology (Just remove the last few entries from where it says RSAT). It’s meant more for my personal refrence that anything else!

Add-WindowsFeature FileAndStorage-Services,File-Services,FS-FileServer,Storage-Services,Web-Server,Web-WebServer,Web-Common-Http,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Static-Content,Web-Health,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Log-Libraries,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-Performance,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Dyn-Compression,Web-Security,Web-Filtering,Web-Client-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-App-Dev,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Net-Ext45,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Asp-Net45,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Mgmt-Tools,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Scripting-Tools,NET-Framework-Features,NET-Framework-Core,NET-Framework-45-Features,NET-Framework-45-Core,NET-Framework-45-ASPNET,NET-WCF-Services45,NET-WCF-TCP-PortSharing45,Server-Media-Foundation,MSMQ,MSMQ-Services,MSMQ-Server,User-Interfaces-Infra,Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra,Server-Gui-Shell,Windows-Identity-Foundation,PowerShellRoot,PowerShell,PowerShell-V2,PowerShell-ISE,WoW64-Support,RSAT,RSAT-Role-Tools,RSAT-AD-Tools,RSAT-AD-PowerShell



To create a list of installed features you can use:

Get-WindowsFeature | where {$_.installed} | export-csv installedroles.csv

And then export the first column from the CSV file for re-use.
