Installing a new Exchange 2013 deployment on an existing domain with questionable history. The existing domain had untold number of previous Exchange deployments with remnants scattered throughout Active Directory. After using ADSI edit to manually remove all instances of the old Exchange servers, running a schema prep runs in to an error about an existing Active Directory Connector. Microsoft suggests (TechNet) disabling the ADC service on the running computer, then uninstalling the service using the exchange server installation CD. In this situation of course the detected ADC was probably on a computer that was long ago trashed or removed.
Continuing from my previous post on integrating an existing Polycom system with Microsoft Lync 2010, I will run down the process for integrating a Polycom RMX bridge. The process is much more difficult than integrating the Polycom endpoints as it requires creating a trusted application within the Lync server, running some shell commands, generating certificates and RMX configuration changes. Once the integration is complete you can create SIP enabled meeting rooms accessible by Lync users and Polycom endpoints alike.
