Depending on your topology, you can migrate Lync Server 2010, Group Chat to a single server or multiple servers. For details about available topologies andthe technical and software requirements for migrating Group Chat Server, see Planning for Group Chat in the Planning documentation. If your organization requires compliance support, you can install a Compliance service on a separate computer after you have completed installing and configuring the servers that are running Group Chat Server. For details, see Deploying Compliance Support in theDeployment documentation. At a minimum, each topology requires a server that has Lync Server 2010 installed, and a server that has Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database software installed.
Group Chat Server must be installed on an NTFS file system to help enforce file system security. FAT32 is not a supported file system for Group Chat Server. This guide assumes that you have alreadyinstalled Lync Server 2010 in coexistence with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2.
