Preparing Your Environment for Live Communications Server 2005 with Service Pack 1 When deploying Live Communications Server 2005 SP1 within an enterprise environment, several network settings need to be modified to enable the properties that LCS requires for installation and connectivity. This chapter describes how Live Communications Server leverages network resources within Microsoft Active Directory; Group Policy Object (GPO) settings; Domain Name Service (DNS); and a digital certificate infrastructure in preparation of a deployment to ensure stable connectivity. You will also be introduced to the appropriate hardware specifications that are required to run Live Communications Server 2005 SP1 and Microsoft Office Communicator 2005. Live Communications Server 2005 and Microsoft Active Directory Live Communications Server utilizes Active Directory for more than just authentication. LCS 2005 with SP1 extends the Active Directory schema with 15 classes and 54 attributes, 13 of which are members of the partial attribute set replicated by the Global Catalog. In addition, LCS 2005 with SP1 adds six management groups to the Active Directory. During the preparations, a new container, RTC Service, is added to the SystemMicrosoft container within Active Directory. The LCS 2005 administration tools provide additional features that enable the system administrator or user administrator to manage the LCS servers within their forest and domains, leverage the Active Directory Users & Computers console to see the Live Communications tab, and manage LCS users in Active Directory. Active Directory may also be leveraged to utilize enterprise certificates and to replicate DNS information.
