Abstract

In part 1 of this blog we discussed the architecture and design of Lync 2013 pChat HADR components. Now we will discuss how this design behaves with various failures within a Lync infrastructure. These different failure scenarios are based off our Disaster Recovery diagram from part 1 (Figure 1). We will cover the following failure scenarios:

  1. Lync Front End Pool failure
  2. Complete Site Failure
  3. pChat Pool failure
  4. Site Recovery
